The Trusteeship planned 8 holiday parties to take place in the month of December….then the fires and mudslides came leaving our sisters in Santa Barbara with delays to their holiday fun. The Santa Barbara holiday party has been rescheduled to January 26th and it may be changed again due to the horrible circumstances there. Stay tuned.
Some of the of the feedback we received from the parties put a smile on our faces….that is what The Trusteeship is truly about….life, love, laughter!
After all my worrying every one agreed they love that there were so few of us. We had great discussions (sexual harassment a prime topic plus the Alabama election and the changes in the Trusteeship membership , to name a few) and they stayed at the dinner table till after 9:30.
All that worry for nothing.

A belated thank you for the amazing Hanukkah Dinner for our group on Thursday evening. Every part of the evening was P-E-R-F-E-C-T! From the amazing Hanukkah decorations throughout your home, having a Menorah for each of us to light, to having Ygal sing the prayers to us when he arrived, it was a joyous evening. I learned so many new things about the history of Hanukkah (Didn’t know it is a tradition to honor teachers and why the connection to the dreidels). Your collections of dreidels and silver wine goblets are amazing, and the hand painted Hanukkah plates were breathtaking. As Mary so aptly pointed out, the Cheese Souffles were incredible and perfectly delicious. And I’m so happy you had each of us introduce ourselves and tell about first Trusteeship Connection. And Sherri, having you go last and giving your impressions was very touching to me – and I think you now know why each of us feels so special about The Trusteeship. There is nothing like it. So sorry that Frieda, Kelly and Martha could not join us. Much love to all, and Happy Hanukkah, Merry Christmas and a Happy and Healthy New Year!
It was a very beautiful, enjoyable and meaningful celebration. Great to meet new members and see old members.
Thank you for being fabulous guests!!
Joy and love to you all!
And biggest thanks to you for hosting all of us. Love your new home and all of your Christmas decorations – especially the Santa’s. Dinner was yummy and gift exchange as always memorable. Wonderful spending time with the best group of women in San Diego. Love to all and again thanks to Linda. Nikki
What a fantastic night and all of you made it so memorable and enjoyable. Thank you all.
Thank you for being a wonderful host! It was a fabulous evening! I am so happy to be part of this group.
Thank you for hosting us to a wonderful evening on Tuesday. It was such a festive celebration with great champagne and wine selections, delicious soup and entrees, your specialty trifle desert, and a Rockefeller Center worthy Christmas trees I’ve seen. Everything was beautiful and you entertained us so well. We will have so many memories from this evening – your inviting Sara to perform for us; to our own Dale joining her in a duet, next a solo and piano accompaniment; to your story about your trifle recipe. My favorite part though was when you accompanied Dale on flute! How often do we get to have both spontaneous piano and flute performances! It was a wonderful time and you are a great host. Beth – we loved meeting you. Welcome to The Trusteeship! Thank you, Julie! I wish we could have stayed all night. Happy holidays to all.
Ditto! A lovely party and a pleasure to see you all.
And Miriam thanks for the photos; the flute-piano duo one is wonderful.
Enjoy the holidays.
Thank you all for coming and making the evening bright. The election news got us off to a great start. Loved hearing everyone’s telling their stories and joining the chorus topped by Dale bringing down the house with her solo finale.
It was a very happy time. Thank you all for making it so. Thank you for the photos, Miriam.
Thank you so much for welcoming me into the Trusteeship and to this lovely dinner party hosted by Julie. I very much look forward to future events and conversations. In the meantime, I wish you the happiest of holiday seasons.
Thank you Carla, for a lovely dinner and conversation.
Happy Holidays everyone,
Carla, it was such a treat to see your amazing home. What a setting, and what a beautiful job you and Adam have done with your renovation. Thanks to you and Kathy for a delicious dinner! It was such a cozy evening with a wonderfully compatible group of accomplished women. Just a delightful way to spend an evening.
Wishing you all a joy filled holiday season!
Thank you, Carla, for a wonderful dinner party. It’s always great to hear the awesome things everyone’s up to. The house is already spectacular and will be even more so when finished!
Looking forward to seeing everyone in January at the new members’ reception.
