Holiday Party and Member's Appreciation

Casa Bella, Sunol, December 4, 2021

On a beautiful sunny December day, 85 SF MBCA members and guests gathered at the spectacular Casa Bella in Sunol, next to the historic Niles Canyon Railway depot.  The restaurant was tastefully decorated (thanks to the Janet Welter of the Decorating Committee), and music softly played as slides of our section’s 2021 events showed in the background.

As guests were checked in, and greeted by Board members, sparkling wine and hor d'oeuvres were offered to all. After the social hour, a bountiful and truly delicious buffet luncheon followed (kudos to the Casa Bella caterers). Dessert was unique: Alfajores cookies enhanced with hand-applied Mercedes Benz tri-star logos! (Thank you Phil Do Carmo).  

After everyone was sated, our president John Goode began the program. After thanking everyone for a great year and announcing the exciting 2022 planned events, MB anniversary pins were awarded by Board members Nadine & Barton Lane to attendees, including 5-year all the way to 35 years.  John, our President was surprised by a special presentation of his Regional Officer of the Year award, with a handsome plaque.  Attendees had such a fine time that they are already looking forward to next year!

Thank you Organizing Committee: John Goode, Nadine & Barton Lane, Janet Welter, and Phil DoCarmo!!
