Annual Summer Party — Farnsworth Park

IWOSC Annual Summer Party

Sunday, August 6, 2006

Spend a leisurely summer afternoon mingling with fellow writers, feasting on Mediterranean food, sipping wine and sangria, and taking in a panoramic view of the San Gabriel Valley and beyond.

We’ll be at the Depression-era William O. Davies Memorial community building at Farnsworth Park. The historic stone building reveals the influence of the naturalistic trend of the California Arts and Crafts period and the handmade, careful construction of local artisans. If it’s a clear day, we’ll be able to see the downtown Los Angeles skyline and the Pacific Ocean. The building is both cool and cooled. It’s historic, beautiful, easy to locate, and the parking is free.

Outgoing president Flo Selfman will present the new 2006-07 board and introduce the “Spirit of Sharon” Award, named in honor of Sharon Gilbert.

Menu: Chicken and beef kebabs, Greek salad, fresh fruit, hummus, tabbouleh, fresh grilled vegetables, rice pilaf, baklava and pastries, beer and wine, sangria and soft drinks.
