Sunday Salons are back for Fall
Sunday Salons afford the opportunity to gather with neighbors on a Sunday afternoon, listen to a resident expert speak about a topic of interest, and share wine and informal discussion in a Del Mar home. Organizer Susan Halenza has arranged for the 10/1 featured speaker to be Garden Guru Pat Welsh, who will speak about her “riches to rags” story as a young Depression-era immigrant to the US.
