Giovanna Cabaret, Alyce Kesselman, Sharon Welch
We would like to salute the adventurous Newcomers who came to our Placerita Park Pizza Party.  It was a great deal of fun!  You were all very good sports and we had a wonderful time along with you.

From Thursday, October 20 to Friday, October 21 the PARTY BUS comes alive again,   Vagabonds have planned a fantastic trip!!

Highlights of the trip:

A visit to the Maloof Residence and Discovery Garden.  Sam Maloof was acknowledged as one of the finest master craftsmen of our time. He designed and produced furniture with profound artistic vision for more than half a century.  His furniture is in some of the most important private collections in the nation and the permanent collection of the Boston Museum of Art, the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Smithsonian and many other fine museums. He designed and built his home and studio which is now in the national Register of Historic Places.  A docent will show us the treasure filled rooms and woodshops and we will be able to see the gorgeous landscaped areas. This will be a unique experience for all of us.

A stop at an historic olive ranch which is home to a well known brand of olives that have been grown and produced by the same family since 1894.  We will be able to tour the olive processing facility and visit their gourmet gift shop.

An exciting tour, in a surprising venue, that reaches back into the past. You will be amazed, delighted and entertained by this one!

Additional features yet to be determined.

Included :

Overnight stay in a double room at a very nice hotel with breakfast.

Two lunches:  One at a “Ristorante Italiano” which features a beautiful dining room decked out with paintings and etched glass The other at a very famous Southern California spot.  Dinner at a Vagabond Favorite restaurant.

Price of $245.00 includes bus, tours, hotel, meals, tips and surprises.

Send your non refundable check, made out to Giovanna Cabaret, to her as soon as possible.  Let us know who you are rooming with if you have chosen a roommate. If you need a roommate, let us know that too.  Don’t be left out!  There is a minimum of 29 and a maximum of 40 for this trip
