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.

OUR ARTIST WILL BE OUR HOST, J MICHAEL CHANDLER:

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?

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.

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?

These parties are filling up fast – less than 2 days in this case. You need to get on the mailing list to be notified first. There will be a waiting list form for the next events.

RAFFLE: Every $10 suggested donation gets 2 raffle tickets, making you eligible to win a $100 bill. The drawing will be held at about 5:30 pm. Must be present to win.

Note from Hope: Great news! We have an artist and a musician for this event. To keep the creative contributions flowing, I have opened the field to artists and musicians beyond the borders of Eldorado. This Sunday we have a local musician who often plays at restaurants in town: Dadou Romanovsky on accordion. We also have Cyndi Harlan showing her paintings, including many of her small 4″x4″ pieces. I love her little abstracts!!

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

GREAT NEWS! We have a chair-master. Henrietta Jacobs is going to store and transport the four boxes of folding chairs for Savor Eldorado. We are very grateful to Anita Shultz (check out her jewelry) who has patiently stored the chairs in her garage for the last couple years.
