The 10th Anniversary Party was a huge success, thanks to hours and hours of planning by Brigitte K, Iko B and Linda Z. In addition, Patty GG and Françoise contributed their cooking.
A gift card was presented to hosts Brigitte and Terje, a small token of appreciation for always opening their home to the club’s members and their guests. The events at their home have become a beloved tradition in the 10 years of club existence, and they are the most gracious and welcoming hosts ever.
Gorgeous Ikebana arrangements by Keiko, made with flowers from Brigitte’s garden, decorated the dining room.
Members and their guests filled the host’s house and yard with animated conversations and laughter.
Entertainment was provided by the “Stoli Band”, a great group of musicians with saxes, piano, percussion, bass. Thank you, Linda M for the idea and convincing your husband to perform.
A Russian Dance Troup also gave a fun performance. Their enthusiasm for the songs and music was evident on their faces and drew everyone to participate in the last dance. Thank you, Elena, for introducing us to Russian culture.
