    Thanks for A GREAT EVENING !

    Once again it was so wonderful to hang out with "The Waccos" ! ( Hey we could make a movie !). I do know there was filming going on , but indeed , as well , there were beautiful moments captured by the wonderful people of "Party Booths" ! What incredible photos and how very generous of them to donate thier time and energy to absolutely thrill us with the fun of instant photos and for free. I for one will be promoting Party Booths and I have evidence of their great work.. Thanks Barry for the great time for all.. Thanks Waccos for showing up and thanks to the lovely ' hands on ' bodywork I received. My back was definetly better. See ya next time!

    Hi Gang!

    I agree...what a wild and talented bunch we have in Sonoma County!

    I realized after we'd all dispersed that there are at least 2 people I didn't have a chance to get the biz cards of/talk to. Can someone please tell me how to connect with:

    * Judith I AM
    * The acupuncturist who was offering a complimentary session? I can't recall her name, but she was standing on the latter half of the circle (i.e., to Barry's right) during the introductions.

    Thanks, team!

    Blessings and appreciation to all,
    Amara

    I'm so sorry I missed it! I had all my stuff in my truck and planned to go, but a family emergency erupted and I was called away.

    See you all next time.

    Once again we had a great turnout of about 50 Waccovians and a grand time was had by all! As always it was wonderful for me and others to connect faces with some of the postings we see. Business interests were furthered and who knows what was going on in the photobooth! Actually, I'm hoping I'm going to get copies of the shots and find out! I'll post some of them here (and in the Censored category too if needed! )

    I want to thank our gracious host, Annie Osborn and the Triumph Life Center, and Royce, Ally, Sara (Auntie Wacco), Robin & Barry for the photobooth, all those who donated raffle prizes, and every body for bringing yummy potluck items and helping keep the place picked up while boiling over with great energy!

    These parties have been a lot of fun and help deepen our community as well as raise some much appreciated funds so we're going to do more! Next up will be tilted back to the social side. The first step is to find a venue. So if you have any ideas who might open their doors and welcome 50-100 happy Waccos, please let me know!

    Hi, it was so much fun to connect and reconnect. Food was good and wasn't the photo booth fun? Out of habit I counted and there were about 80 folks there. Natalie from natspetmats

    Great idea, Shellebelle. I was the lucky winner of a massage (I never win things, let alone cool things like this), so will report back after I get the rub-down.

    It was a fun event all right, and I for one made a couple of worthwhile connections. Let's do it again real soon!
