Looking Back at October
On the day the electricity died, we celebrated Diwali, the Indian festival of lights. This was a friend and fundraiser at Cherie Sorokin’s home in Tiburon and the 9th of our 10th anniversary events. Miraculously Lakshmi, the Hindu goddess of prosperity, arranged for the lights to stay on until after the party ended at 8:00 pm! Whew. But, of course we also had plenty of candles. See below.
Pictured above in the group photo are Neelam Kanwar, who explained the holiday and made sure the food was authentic, Cherie Sorokin, Hostess and President of Marin Villages, Eddie Rivero, Marin Villages Volunteer, and Diane Castro, Volunteer and Administrative Coordinator. The photos on top and at right are of the alter that Neelam created for Lakshmi and Ganesh, Hindu gods.
Here some photos from the recent TPV/Sunset Rotary Emergency kit project:
Stories and more stories
On May 22 Sally Warren, Gabriella Mautner, Joseph Levine (all pictured above) and David Albert (not pictured) enchanted a delightful group of Marin Villagers with stories of their lives.
Stories included personal vignettes ranging from changing careers from glamorous modeling to repossessing bedroom furniture from a house of ill-repute; wishing a wife happy birthday with a big photo in the Ark of her wild ostrich ride in South Africa; writing novels based on harrowing personal events escaping from Nazis during WWII; and growing up from unlikely circumstances to find love and a calling as a rabbi.
Watch for their stories on our website in coming months and we continue our "Who Knew" postings about members of our Marin Villages community.
