November Meeting
When: Thursday, November 21, 6:30 pm
Where: Vicki's
What: Fall/Thanksgiving Floral & Dinner
Bring:  Dessert, Bread, or Drink

     Back by popular demand is a flower workshop. Vicki will provide the materials, flowers and instruction and you will go home with a Fall arrangement suitable for your family's Thanksgiving table. You will just pay for the cost of the supplies, about $20-30 depending on wholesale prices.

RSVP is mandatory so Vicki can purchase enough materials for all. Please RSVP to Vicki by Monday 11/18.

Vicki will also provide soup for dinner beforehand so we are all energized and ready to create.  Please bring a dessert, bread or drink to share, alcoholic or not, your choice. 

Our Annual Christmas Party
When: Thursday, December 12, 6:30 pm
Where: Marilyn's

RSVP to Marilyn as to what you will be bringing:  appetizer, salad, main dish, dessert, etc

The theme this year is "Something Floral".......could go in your garden.....but might go in your family room, kitchen, bathroom.....or even on your back!  So be creative!  (Robin is hoping for "homemade")  Target price = $20

Happy Hour.....Sally

Happy Hour on Thursday, November, 7th, will be at the Elephant Bar in  Campbell, 499 E. Hamilton Avenue. Hours 3-close on Thursday!
The Sharks's do have a home game that night, so we want to avoid downtown.

Napa B&B Holiday Tour.....Sue Butler

It's time to start planning for the annual Napa Holiday B&B Tour:  December 7, 2013, 3 p.m to 7 p.m.

We will leave Sat morning and only stay one night at Embassy Suites.  Last year the cost for the room was around $170 per night.  We are within walking distance from the Napa Inn (if we want to start there for the tour) and there are bigger breakfasts at Embassy, bigger rooms and a place to play games.

Tickets for the tour stayed at $65.00 per person, and still well worth it.  Go to and purchase your tickets.  See the list of B&B's that are participating this year.  Great entertainment, food and decorations (besides wine and some even have beer).

Some friends just come for the day, and others will spend the night.

Let me know if you decide to come with, we usually go to lunch beforehand at Buckhorn in Napa.

Saturday Coffee Clatches Continue
We meet every Saturday morning at 9 am at Le Boulanger at San Felipe and Yerba Buena.  There is a Starbucks across from it if you need something "special" to go with your bagel or pastry.   By request, we will be checking out the the M8trix Casino for November away coffee.  We will meet at the Lotus Cafe on Nov. 16th, at 9:00.   Go to their web site for location and directions.
