 What happened on Saturday night, October 18th?

The middle of  October, Art Beat on Main Street in Vista, Ca. had a reception for our dear friend  Maxine Custer.   The entire show has been in the making for months, and was spearheaded by another dear friend, LaRetta Small Zamora.  It became clear recently that LaRetta needed the help of three of the Fabulous Five Divas to pull it together.  That meant that with the exception of Maxine providing her paintings for the show, the remaining four of us needed to share in the pulling it together!

Only part of the food!

And…..

After dividing up the catering responsibilities between Karin deBaay, Susan Kopp, LaRetta, and myself it made it much easier on LaRetta, and was actually fun.  One person would have gone crazy…ier than they already were, so it worked out perfectly.

After placing announcements on Facebook, and group emails, not one of us even had a clue as to how many people might show up. So many invitations went out, that we lost count.   But we were ready for a fabulous party!

For those of you who couldn’t make it, you missed a great party, but you still will be able to see the show!
