A Few Pics from 8/25 at Marna & Chuck’s

What a sweet time we had! This Savor Eldorado community is gelling very nicely. It’s delightful to see the relationships forming as neighbors get to know one another. Remember, everyone is welcome! Andy Mason was the perfect musician for our event and I got to sit in which was super fun. Marna sold a painting and two spirit poles and we all got to enjoy Chuck’s beautiful sculptures. The food was awesome. Anybody out there want to host the next one? It’s an easy, easy potluck. Contact Hope!

Thanks to Chuck for the photos below. If any of you took pics or videos that you’d like to submit for the website, please send them to savorhope at gmail dot com. Thanks!


Time to RSVP for 8/25 at Marna & Chuck’s!

andyMasonPlayingWe have another fun party coming up on Sunday 8/25 at Marna Zanoff & Chuck Boxwell‘s house from 3-6 pm. The RSVP form and invitations are now active. Please submit your RSVP using the link below. This is a pot luck. Plan to bring finger food and your drink of choice. We are featuring singer/songwriter Andy Mason. You may have heard him at the Lamy Woodstock event, or at the Farmer’s Market. He’s really good. Listen on his website.

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

Marna Zanoff is an “acrylic abstract painter” who loves playing with color, texture and shapes. Her spirit poles add color and interest to any yard. They sway in the wind and each is different. See her website.

Samples of Marna’s work:


Chuck Boxwell explores form, flow, and space by sculpturing natural stone, working in alabaster, limestone, and marble from around the world. Drawing on is knowledge as an Architect, and experience as an Underwater Photographer, he creates unique objects incorporating shape, movement, and texture.  He enjoys the complexity and planning required to successfully carve a concept into the stone.  This form of three dimensional art is challenging as you can only “take away from” rather than “add to.”

Samples of Chuck’s work:


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.

EXTRA: You are invited to join Hope Kiah and Jim Harlan for acoustic guitar, vocals and improv flute at Eldorado Upper Crust on Friday 8/30. Read more here. 

August Party Approaches, and…

Save the date of Sunday August 25th for the next Savor Eldorado party at Marna Zanoff and Chuck Boxwell’s home. RSVPs will be accepted during the first week of August so stay tuned!

Fun news:  Eldorado Living editor Margo Spellman will include a few hundred words about Savor Eldorado in the September edition. I’ll write a little bit and have received some lovely quotes from guests. Thank you!

Additionally, I’d like to pitch a fun event coming up. Remember Woodstock, OMG, 50 years ago?? A bunch of us musicians will be remembering it together at the Lamy Train Depot Park in August. Julie Cunningham entertained us with Larry Diaz at the last Savor party. Alongside Chris and Lisa Harrell, they are deep in the production of this event which will benefit The Child Counseling Center of New Mexico. Sponsor the event and help this important non-profit for kids! You can purchase your tickets and sponsorship here. See more info below.


A Few Pics from 7/7 at the Kaisers

What a sweet afternoon we had at Elaine and Art Kaiser’s yesterday! How good of them to open their gorgeous home twice this year for Savor Eldorado. Julie and Larry entertained us perfectly and kindly invited me to sit in on some tunes. Dan Gowe gave us a wonderful description of how he meticulously crafts his bamboo fly rods. Thanks to Kay Castelle, Pat Murphy and Julie Cunningham for these pics. Save the date for our next Savor Eldorado at Marna Zanoff and Chuck Boxwell’s on 8/25. I will send out a notice and accept RSVPs in early August.
