The 70th Birthday Celebration

Sunday, October 29, 2017, 5 pm

Gualala Arts Center

If you are celebrating your 70th Birthday anytime in 2017 this is the gathering for you!  This informal evening offers a Salmon dinner menu as originally created by Rosemarie Hocker for the first community birthday celebration on Sea Ranch back in 1998.  Birthday celebrants receive their dinner for free and for family or friends wishing to join in on the festivities, the dinner is $35.  Please call Gualala Arts at 707- 884-1138 to make reservations for you and your guests.

70th Birthday Celebrants are invited to share pictures and memories of special moments in their lives.

The 70th Birthday Party is one of the lasting legacies of Rosemarie Hocker.  It has taken place almost every year since the first celebration and continues to bring together a wide selection of people.  Many find that friendships are made and/or renewed during the evening and a happy consequence is a strengthened bond with the local community.

Tables will be provided for birthday guys and gals to share their memories. Past presentations have included photo albums, wedding pictures, school yearbooks, trinkets, military service memorabilia, cheerleading pompoms and more.

Anyone who is not a celebrant but would like to participate as a host, waiter and/or chef, please consider joining us. That makes it a double party for us all!

Paula Ray Power will provide portraits of the birthday celebrants and their guests as a special gift from Gualala Arts.
