Dec 5 – Holiday Dinner!!


Annual Marin 99’s Holiday Party

A big thanks to Beth and Richard Behrens for hosting our Annual Marin 99’s
Holiday Party at their beautiful home.  A combination of yummy appetizers
and desserts brought by our gals complimented Beth’s scrumptious soup and
salad.  We capped off the party with a Secret Santa exchange, where some
left with a better gift than they brought (I’m guilty!!).
