A ROUND OF APPLAUSE FOR

  • All of our parent volunteers who helped staff the December Jazz Festival and Winter Concert. You rock!
  • Special thanks to Gina Pletschett for her excellent leadership, and also to Judi Nishimori and Ben Szutu for their terrific slide show the evening of the Winter Concert! We had some fantastic silent auction items and hand-made (by  Mrs. Glass) cork ornaments which raised $470 for the program. Thank you to those who donated items for the auction.  We had a beautiful, one of a kind wine cork bird house with lights that was handcrafted by Cheryl Yee Glass. Karen Wisser donated a collection of outdoor gear adventure gift basket including camp stove, mattress pads, cushioned backpacking chair and a camping espresso maker! It was fantastic! A beautiful Rodan + Fields gift basket was generously donated by Connie Gazarian. A big thank you to Carol Ohara and See’s Candy for donating a box of Peanut Brittle and a gift certificate. Linda Dalenberg & Cheryl Yee Glass donated a wonderful gourmet dipping oils, bowls and cheese basket.  These will be tough to top at the spring music concert.If you’d like to contribute an item for the spring concert, please let us know.
