Members Hearts Aflutter!
the annual I Love Monte Vista Party
Thanks to all who attended our annual membership drive on Valentine’s Day. The sweets were delicious and beautifully presented. Our bartenders, Cee Parker and Wendell Fuqua, poured wine and champagne like a couple of pros. Paula Bondurant, MVHA President, was delighted to greet renewing and new members alike as they entered the gorgeous home of Leith and Dick Negley. The Negleys decorated their home with pink and red hearts, flowers and silver for the event. They also graciously provided a huge and beautifully decorated cookie from Lily’s Cookies as a party favor for each guest to take home. We can’t thank the Negleys enough for their genuine hospitality!
Very special entertainment this year was provided by Aaron Prado, Ph.D., on the grand piano accompanied by his father, George Prado on the string bass. Later we were treated with the beautiful voice of Anna Liesman singing love songs. The music was so inspiring that a few members got up to dance!
The purpose of the I Love Monte Vista Party is a membership drive and an opportunity to show the love for our beautiful historic district. We had a wonderful turnout. Especially welcome were several new members with little ones in tow. We love having new generations join our older generations for the beautiful blend that is our diverse neighborhood. We also welcomed some new business members to the neighborhood. Look for updates in our Helpful Numbers tab on the website soon! On behalf of the Monte Vista Historical Association and especially the Membership Committee (Elladean Moreno, Melody Hull and Leith Askins-Negley) THANK YOU!
