We had a beautiful evening on Wednesday, June 24, to host our annual scholarship dinner at Doheny State Beach.  We appreciate the help provided by Denise Estrada, Doheny State Beach Special Events Coordinator, and Jim Miller. Jack Saunderson and his El Patio Café crew prepared and served the delicious Fiesta Dinner once again to raise funds for the scholarships in memory of his mother, Lucy, and author Doris Walker.  We also wish to thank all of those who provided merchandise and gifts for our opportunity drawing.  Nearly 90 people attended our event this year and the Society also celebrated the 90th birthday of our beloved member Bea Reed.

Merchandise, gift certificates, and coupons were all part of the opportunity drawing.
