To the editor:

On behalf of the Newman Garden Club, we wold like to thank Mattos Newspapers for help in setting up our programs, tickets and flyers for our Nov. 3 “A Garden of Tables” event held at Pea Soup Andersen’s in Santa Nella.

A huge thanks to our 12 hostesses for the beautifully decorated tables. The many different themes were fantastic.

Many thanks also go to our generous donors, including Ellen Hasness, Kathryn Crinklaw, Glen’s Hair Station, Lee’s Floral & Gift, Superior Truck Lines, Newman Ace Hardware, Coast Hardware, CMB Boutique, Pioneer Drug of Gustine, Pea Soup Andersen’s and J’s Styles.

We also extend our appreciation to all of our ticket-holders, who helped make this event possible. All proceeds will benefit TOSCA and GUSTO, as well as Penny Pines, a reforestation project through the California Forestry Service.
