Dinner on the Point -
A Big Success
After a two-year delay, we finally held the PPCA Progressive Dinner on Saturday, June 25. About 50 neighbors enjoyed appetizers in different homes (thank you Hanna Steinbach, Helen Brontë-Stewart and Kathleen & Dan Shugar). Then, everyone proceeded to different dinner homes where hosts Kathy Long & Greg Hirsch, Gary Furlong & David Costa, Joanne & Ed Gold, Marcia Settel & Dave Gilson, Leo Leon & Kris Geiger, and Christine Stahl & Greg Gerber cooked delicious entrees. The final destination was the home of Sam Casillas & Andrea Masters for dessert.
This event really is a highlight of our community gatherings, and we’ve missed it. It’s an opportunity to hang out with known neighbors, meet new neighbors, peek at the interiors of our neighbors’ homes, eat good food and drink good wine. This year, we also got to celebrate multiple birthdays and raise about $2,000 for Firehouse upkeep. A wonderful evening was had by all!
Thank you to all who helped make it happen, both our hosts and our guests - and to Jane Kang for donating a massage for us to raffle off. We'll be back in 2023!

Help the Firehouse, Have Fun: Fog Fest Booth
We still need at least 5 more volunteers for the PPCA wine and beer booth at the Pacific Coast Fog Fest, on Saturday, September 24. The booth helped us raise nearly $2,000 the last time we hosted one.
To run the booth, we need to staff 29 total shifts of 2 hours and 15 minutes each. Shifts start at 9:00, 11:10, 1:20 and 3:30. If you want to help but need some flexibility in shift time, let us know. Also, feel free to sign up for more than one shift - it's hard work but a lot of fun.
If transportation/parking is causing you to hesitate, we'll be adding a "shuttle" to and from the venue/Pedro Point, provided by community volunteers.
For more information or to volunteer, contact Breck Hitz, email@example.com.
