An Intime Luncheon Celebrating Patty Elkus

An intime luncheon took place in honor of Patty Elkus at the beautiful 1915 Spanish home of Susan McClellan January 12th, 2011. A setting that had magnificent views over La Jolla and the Pacific.

Among the group, Margo Schwab, Jeanne Larson, Deborah Lys, host Susan McClellan and Birthday gal Patty Elkus


Among those there to celebrate Patty Elkus and her birthday this month were May Zawaideh, Deborah Lys, Kirsten Wagenseller, Susan Booth, Carlie Headapohl, Catherine Ramirez, Jeanne Larson, Valerie Cooper, and Margo Schwab.

There were cocktails, an unusual plane sighting, a delicious luncheon prepared by Susan: salad with currants and jicama, a roasted tomato tart with feta cheese, and a homemade cake that was determined to lean like the leaning tower of Pisa.... but no one cared. It was delicious with blueberries and raspberries.

Patty has made innumerable friends from the San Diego community and from such worthy organizations as the International SeaKeepers' Society, Scripps Institution of Oceanography, and ARCS.

Bravo and Happy Birthday to Patty Elkus!
