This year the PCASDR Volunteer Party was held on August 24th
in the north county at the San Elijo Lagoon Nature Center. The center, nestled on the north side of the Ecological Reserve, has expansive views of the marsh and ocean sunset. The visitor center itself is an interactive museum, with exhibits about the history and ecology of San Elijo Lagoon. The second-floor observation deck provided us with sweeping views of the lagoon as we celebrated and recognized our volunteers.
The fresh food from Le Papagayo in Leucadia was fabulous. The menu included: Barcelona Traditional Paella—calamari, shrimp, scallops, mussels, chicken, yellow & green peppers, extra virgin olive oil, Tuscan herbs & saffron rice; and Wahine Salad—mixed field greens with avocado, hearts of palm, tomatoes, mango & macadamia nuts and mint vinaigrette. We closed with homemade mixed berry sorbet from Mariposa Homemade Ice Cream.
The president’s gift for each chairperson was a handmade pen with the club and Porsche colors. Special thanks to Bob Hallett who designed, created and spent a great deal of his time assembling each beautiful pen.
Great times were had by all the hard working volunteers. Thanks for your dedication to our club. We are looking for more great volunteers to accept a chair position for next year.
