Celebración de días festivos: Lo pasé de maravilla

by Ernie Evangelista, 2014 SLA Georgia President-Elect

Drizzle late Tuesday afternoon, December 9, cleared but the air that night turned chilly. Nonetheless, 33 SLA Georgians and ALLA (Atlanta Law Libraries Association) members and guests had a wonderful time. (That’s our headline in Spanish.)

As the party invitation promised, the atmosphere at Eclipse di Luna was muy caliente (very hot). Several guests checked in with drinks already in hand thanks to quick and efficient service from Kris and restaurant wait staff. Debbie Maron of West, our event sponsor, kicked off the party that featured a four course meal of eight tapas and three desserts.

Before dessert, ALLA and SLA Georgia Presidents Deborah Schander and Nancy Snell, respectively, thanked members and guests for attending. 2015 SLA Georgia President-Elect Meg Butler may have brought our youngest guest ever, six month old daughter Catherine, to the party. Nancy also shared news that SLA Fellow Liz Bibby would be retiring as Director at the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta the next day. So, rather than disrupt the many lively conversations going on, party planners Richelle Reid and Ernie Evangelista skipped their planned Latin holiday trivia contest, but continued with a raffle prize drawing. Nancy Adams, Patty Kenly and Deborah Schander each won a $25 Barnes and Noble gift card. ALLA Member-At-Large Benedette Wright won a two food book package donated by Springer, while Liz Bibby walked away with a copy of “Behind the Executive Door,” also donated by Springer.

Richelle acknowledged those who either brought gifts or donated to the Truancy Intervention Project or TIP. She later reported that 18 children and parents were adopted through the gift drive. Though the party’s over, members can continue to support TIP, using information at: http://georgia.sla1.org/2014/12/2014-holiday-party-reminder-and-a-giving-opportunity/
