Lilac Tea, Walk & Art Alliance of Idyllwild Artists

Was a beautiful success! We believe the earlier weather  forecasts for rain may have discouraged some of our out of town guests. However, the day dawned clear and lovely in the  low 70's with a light breeze. It appears our talented Art Alliance artists sold a fair number of their creations and our guests were all very enthusiastic about the hundreds of lilac at their peak, the generous and delightful tea and the beauty of Gary's garden.  Thanks to all of you loyal members for  your hard work, happy attitudes and generosity in responding to our need for sandwiches. They were lovely.


Your Board is meeting monthly and diligently working on plans for the Club in the year. If you have any ideas, or suggestions, for programs, please let us know!
