Fandango: Saturday, June 16, 2018

Location:  Casa de Turner
17435 Raymer Street
Sherwood Forest, CA  91325

Activities:  Socializing with old friends & new ones. Traditional Mexican Fare.  Sale & limited auction of books, paintings, etc.  Good music. Early California attire.

Time: 4:00-7:00 PM

Once again, Gary and Vicki Turner are generously opening their home for our enjoyment at the 2018 Fandango! The theme for this year’s Fandango is Early California.  This means, when Denny Thompson opens the bar at 4:00pm, the tequila will be well aged – not to mention the venerable Jack Daniels and the Pellegrino sparkling water chilled with genuine ice cubes.  But the dinner, served at 5:00pm, will be fresh, nutritious and especially tasty Traditional Mexican Fare. It’s likely you will not go home hungry.

Feel free to invite your family, friends and neighbors.  All are welcome – especially if they bring money for the sale! This would be a good opportunity to introduce someone who might value becoming a member – even if they like to wear old hats.

At the Fandango, we will enjoy socializing with old friends and getting acquainted with new ones. And we’ll listen to good music.

Participate in the old book sale and in the, hopefully, fast-moving auction of special history books, paintings and artifacts. Due to donations from collector members, we should have some interesting historical items for sale.  Bring plenty of cash or some checks to make sure you can take advantage of the opportunities that may arise! Later, we’ll circulate more info on the notable items for sale.
