70th Birthday Celebration Is 1943 your birth year?

If so, you and your guests are invited to the Gualala Arts Center (new location this year) for a shared 70th Birthday Celebration Dinner. Gualala Arts is delighted to embrace this wonderful community tradition by offering to provide this dinner free of charge to any person born in 1943.

The 70th Birthday Celebration began with a group back in 1998, and is one of the legacies of Rosemarie Hocker. It has continued almost every year since.

Many find that friendships are made and/or renewed during the evening. A happy consequence is a strengthened bond with our community.

70th Birthday Celebration And to others who are not celebrants but would like to participate as hosts, waiters or chefs, please join us as well. That makes it a double party for us all!
