The William D. Evans sternwheeler at The Bahia Resort was the scene of our latest WoD outing. What a treat! It’s such a beautifully historic boat. The stain-glassed 2nd deck ceiling is gorgeous. Many thanks to the catering ladies – Susan, Kristin and Kelly and the banquet staff for providing a delicious meal and wonderful visit.

Special thanks go out to WoD member Lois Mathews of Lois Mathews Design for the creative table décor. Beautiful candles, baubles and peacock feathers!

Guests for the day included coordinator Carmin Cermak of Carmin Designs, Fred Alderete from Concepts Event Design and little baby Axel – WoD member Cynthia Zatkin’s newest addition to her family. Also welcomed to the group were new members Sara Sargent, catering manager from the Sheraton Carlsbad Resort and Spa , Haydee and Fred Alderete, owners of Concepts Event Design and Kristina Chartier of Kristina Chartier Photography

Our two showcasers for the day were coordinator Ann Strobel from Ann’s Plans and Meleah , hair & make-up stylist, 1st dance instructor, image consultant and more. Thank you ladies for sharing your talents with the group.

Board members shared group business and announcements with all. Thank you Ann for the generous raffle prize. A few testimonials were shared. Birthdays were acknowledged. Many, many referrals were exchanged and, as we do each month, networking was enjoyed by all.
