Some Pics from the 4/28 Party

Sunday was so sweet. The perfect number of guests enjoyed Ellen and Michael Chandler’s lovely home. Perky played mandolin/guitar and sang his fun tunes. Michael shared his beautiful art. The food was delicious and the weather was stunning. Ellen Chandler told Hope that “The cleanup was easy and quick. The whole experience was enjoyable. Such interesting people live in our town!”

Great news! We now have enough extra cash from the raffle to give $100 to a local organization. THANK YOU TO ALL TICKET BUYERS! The Vista Grande Library will be the recipient. It would be perfect if we could hand the donation over to a library person at the next event. So we need an event! Would you like to host? Give Hope a ring at 505-920-2256.



Did anybody take some more pics? If so, reply to one of Hope’s emails and send them along. Or text them. Thanks!

5 Spots left for Sunday, 4/28!

Savor friends, it’s time to RSVP for the next Savor Eldorado event at Ellen and Michael Chandler’s, on Sunday 4/28 from 3pm to 6pm. Now (11 am 4/25) only 5 spots left. To be notified early next time, you need to get on the mailing list to be notified first. (I will offer a waiting list form if we get booked up early.) This is a pot luck. Plan to bring finger food and your drink of choice. 

RAFFLE: Every $10 suggested donation gets 2 raffle tickets, making you eligible to win a $100 bill. The drawing will be held at about 5:00 pm. Must be present to win. Thanks again to Kay and Gary for being the official treasurers in addition to being our raffle-masters! We are thrilled to start saving extra raffle money to donate to local organizations. More about that as the money comes in.

Perky_03bNote from Hope: Great news! We have an artist and a musician for this event. Long time guitar and mandolin player “Percolator John” puts the bounce into originals and favorite cover songs, entertaining audiences with song and stories.

RSVP NOW! You will receive directions and information a few days before the event.

Would you like to host the May party, or beyond? Please contact Hope. It’s fun! And remember, it’s a potluck so not a huge project.

ABOUT THE CHAIRS: We have four boxes of folding chairs that need a home. Savor founder Gila Joy Pascale is housing them temporarily. More info here. Can you take over? That would be great. 

EXTRA: You are invited to join Hope Kiah and Jim Harlan for a mix of acoustic guitar, vocals and improv flute at Upper Crust in Eldorado on Friday 5/3. Read more here. 

Got Space for Chairs?


Greetings Savor Eldoradoans. Henrietta Jacobs has been kindly storing our extra chairs. She is moving in April and the chairs need a new home. We’re looking for someone who will store the chairs, bring them to events and pick them up after. Is this you? If so, put a comment below and/or call me at 505-920-2256. The four boxes of four folding chairs each are about 4 feet high if I remember correctly. Thank you! -Hope Kiah

“…the easiest party I’ve ever hosted!”

No pressure but… doesn’t Elaine’s enthusiasm make you want to host?? We’re looking for hosts for May and beyond. Contact Hope!

Elaine Kaiser said this of the 1/20 Savor Eldorado event at her and Art’s home:

“That was the easiest party I’ve ever hosted!  Within an hour of everyone leaving, my house looked like no one had been there.  No prep work, cooking, dishes to do… and we even came away with a couple bottles of wine!  I’d be happy to host again in the future if you need me!”

Elaine and Art will be hosting again on Sunday, June 23, 2019. Many of you have mentioned wanting to host in the summer so sign up soon! We’re looking at Sundays late in the month.

Some Pics from 1/20

The last Savor party was fantastic. 40 + guests gathered in Elaine and Art Kaiser’s beautiful home, gracing each other with delicious food and drink. Dadou played his accordion which was truly perfect for the space, and Cyndi Harlan shared and sold her lovely art. Honestly, these events are a joy to produce. I’m so grateful to everyone involved and to all our raffle ticket buyers. Our good treasurer Kay Castelle reports that we have $388 in the till. That means we’re set for our next musician and raffle, and we have a $100 reserve. With $88 remaining we are only $12 away from our first donation to a local organization. How fun is that? All we need now is a host for the next event… Is it you?
