Summer Patio Party – Aug. 25

Thank you to everyone who attended our Summer Patio Party Fundraiser on Sunday, August 25th. We are honored by your support.

Thank you to Jan and Gary Friedrichsen for letting us use their beautiful home for the event, and for all the work they put in to making the event a success, such as organizing the lasagna makers, catching and smoking the fish, and answering numerous questions!

Thank you to our generous supporters who donated food: Brio Bakery, Cypress Grove, Humboldt Bay Oyster Company, Ramone’s Bakery, Redwood Roots Farm, and Rose.

Thank you to our lovely flower ladies: Anita Gilbride-Reid, Sharon King, Barbara Wilkinson, Barbara Reisman, and Chris Beresford for arranging the flowers donated by Redwood Roots Farm.

Thank you to John Woolley for organizing the oysters and Steven, Chuck, and Janet for grilling them!

Thank you to Good Company for the beautiful music.

Lastly, thank you to the many volunteers and NEC Board members who gave their time and resources to make this event possible. We can’t wait to see you all again next year!
