On November 20 the Orinda Woman’s Club will put on the 28th Annual Festival of Trees Benefit Luncheon and Fashion Show at the San Ramon Marriott Hotel. To support the program, the Orinda Juniors have decorated a small tree to be auctioned at the luncheon. Our theme is the 24 Days of Christmas.


For our fundraiser this year, we gathered at Maura’s house to make Cookies in a Jar and Chocolate Sauce. We made about 72 jars of chocolate sauce and 48 jars of cookie mix! We spent our next group meeting decorating the treats and will be selling them at our next meeting. They are wonderful holiday and hostess gifts.


The Orinda Juniors had a great time decorating pumpkins at our October meeting. Once we were all done, a small group (along with their children all decked out in their spookiest garb) delivered the pumpkins to an enthusiastic crowd of seniors at the Orinda Senior Village.
