It’s mid-September? Really? The countdown to the holidays will be upon us before we know it. For some, the High Holy Days are here with Rosh Hashana beginning to night at sundown and Yom Kippur arriving on Sept. 25.

It was an elegant crowd at the SCV Women and Men of Honor event held at the Hyatt Regency Valencia on Sept. 8. It was also an elegant event. I loved the Coconut Grove theme.

Margo fashions on parade

It was fun to wear my lovely long gold gown that I received from Margo several years ago. Others came decked out in “Margo” fashions including Linda Pedersen, JoAnn Vindigni and Tippi Hedren.

Malia Dunn off to Hawaii

I was surprised to find out that my favorite bartender at the Hyatt, Malia Dunn is leaving the SCV at the end of the month for Hawaii. She has decided to hang up her cocktail shaker and move closer to her son. No one makes a Bloody Mary like Dunn. I shall miss her expertise! It just won’t be the same.

Boston Scientific

Samuel Dixon Family Health Centers Inc. announced that Boston Scientific returns as the top “Super Duck” sponsor for the 10th Rubber Ducky Festival by. All proceeds will go toward patient care at the Dixon Centers, which offers affordable, quality primary health care for residents of the SCV. The Rubber Ducky Festival is set for Saturday, Oct. 27, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Bridgeport Park in Valenica. The fun-filled family festival features rubber ducky regatta races beginning at noon.
