The dark clouds that threatened rain all day last Friday were held at bay, allowing some 65 people to remain dry and comfortably conversational atLa Cañada Flintridge Tournament of Roses Association’s monthly “Happy Hour” evening.
Stephanie and Jim Kambe were wonderful hosts as they welcomed the guests. Their daughter, Laurie, was also there to join the throng as they arranged their tasty hors d’oeuvres on the kitchen island.
Throughout the evening, volunteer bartenders mixed, shook and stirred the beverages that guests ordered from the bar set up in the plant-laden patio.
The big-screen TV in the family room was tuned into the March Madness basketball game, where fans rooted their teams onward and upward.
It was fun to chat with newlyweds Adine and Jim Misamore, who still had stars in their eyes as they talked about their small wedding and the fact that they’d kept it secret from all their friends in the Tournament until it was revealed at the “Under-the-Bridge” float decorating site.
