Time to RSVP for Savor – July 7

Time for another fun afternoon party at the Kaiser’s. Elaine and Art are generously opening their home again for a Savor Eldorado event, on Sunday July 7 from 3pm to 6pm. (See some pics from that day.) The World of Dreams Duo with Julie Cunningham and Larry Diaz will be our background entertainment, sharing an extensive repertoire of pop (mostly oldies), 60s and 70s hits, Beatles and originals. Listen to them on CD Baby. (Hear my flute on “Realize.”)

dan gowe

We have a new and exciting kind of art for this event: Dan Gowe will be sharing his handcrafted bamboo fly rods. I visited his Eldorado studio and got the full tour.  It’s quite amazing to let him walk you through the intricate process of making a rod. The tools alone are a trip. Dan has kindly decided to donate 10% of any sales made at the party to our donation til. (Our first $100 check goes to the Vista Grande Library) Contact Daniel if you’d like  to set up a visit. He takes groups as well.

This is a pot luck. Plan to bring finger food and your drink of choice.

RSVP HERE NOW >> You will receive directions and information.

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.

EXTRA: You are invited to join Hope Kiah and Jim Harlan for acoustic guitar, vocals and improv flute at Upper Crust in Eldorado on Friday 7/5. Read more here. 

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!

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.

Got Space for Chairs?

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, July 7, 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.
