The quarterly potluck November 19 at Mission Valley Library gave SDBA members an opportunity to relax, visit, share books, and make some decisions about the Collaborative Art Project. Volunteer appreciation was also high on the agenda with a hats off to the Board of Directors and a special thank you to committee chairs. More photos on the Member Events page and the About page.
