On October 13, 2011, as a new member of the Opera Society, I was honored to attend to the Fall Membership Luncheon at the beautiful residence of Barbara Copanos in Sea Ranch Lakes.
The house is a lovely cool counterpoint to the fabulous lush gardens it’s set in. Barbara was at the door with others to graciously welcome all to her home with a cup of delicious champagne punch before entering into her living room where Ann Rentoumis played piano favorites on Barbara’s beautiful grand piano.
It is truly a selfless gesture when you understand it is the 18th consecutive year that Barbara has hosted this luncheon. Everything was delicious including the delicate chicken salad, which I understand she prepared herself along with the rest of the gourmet lunch.
