Don Magdanzby Don Magdanz, Redwood Region Social Director

On Saturday, December 10, seventy Redwood Region members attended the Holiday Party at Seghesio Family Vineyards in Healdsburg. President Greg Maissen greeted the guests in Seghesio's tasting room, where the friendly staff served 4 wines for tasting.

Dinner was served efficiently and all guests were eating at the same time. The Redwood Room was delightful, with lots of space between the tables, and the food was delicious; a guest said that a steak knife was unnecessary because you could cut the Filet Mignon with a fork. Seghesio furnished all the wines, including two that were served with dinner. Dessert was accompanied by a slide show of pictures from 2011 events, tastefully assembled by Bob Schoenherr.

David Bunch announced the winners of the election for 2012 Officers, then outgoing President Greg Maissen pulled numbers out of a hat to rattle-off door prizes acquired by recently-appointed Advertising Director Simone Kopitzki.

Anita Benzing was responsible for choosing the band, Schindig, from Willits. The music was great for listening as well as dancing; many guests were still dancing until the very end. Schindig also provided background music during the wine tasting. Everyone had a great time, including the staff at Seghesio. Many guests took advantage of the deal at the Dry Creek Inn for an overnight stay. It was up to Porsche Club standards and included breakfast.

The venue for our 2012 Holiday Party will be a topic of discussion at our upcoming Calendar Planning Meeting
