2017 Volunteer Appreciation Dinner

How do we begin to say thank you to our dedicated and hard-working SNV-PCA Volunteers? ANSWER: With the Annual Volunteer Appreciation Dinner!

The main dining room of La Vecchia Italian Restaurant in Reno was this year’s gathering place for the 34 SNV-PCA members celebrating a successful year of planning and events. All seemed to enjoy an evening of lively conversation, club-subsidized wine and delicious menu options prepared by chef/owner Alberto Gazzola. The spectacular view of downtown Reno sparkled beyond, over gelato and bread pudding desserts.

President Steve Kent recognized all volunteers by their names and contributions. The club this year chose to recognize each volunteer with a special gift. Each of the 12 couples present received a fabulous bottle of wine artfully tied with an orange bow and thank you wine tag. A gift sure to be sipped and savored over the holiday season!

In memoriam, Steve recognized member Jack Roberts, who passed away in October. He and his wife Lois added so much of their talents and energy to the success of our club.

Armed with wine, still more “thankfulness” abounded with door prizes! Once again, “The Lucky Dickensons” took away the $50 La Vecchia gift certificate kindly donated by Alberto Gazzola. The Dells went home with the “Thankful for You” pumpkin themed basket. A bowl full of homemade German Spritz cookies was each won by the Stroms and O’Lareys.

GRAZIE and THANK YOU to all the amazing 2017 Board members and event volunteers who made our SNV-PCA the unique success and fun that it is.
