This past Sunday we gathered for yet another festive Convivio! We enjoyed lots of delicious food thanks to Aster’s Ethiopian Restaurant as well as Queta, Sofia and Gladys’ cooking! We also celebrated a former resident’s teenage daughter’s birthday with a cake and live music from Spirit of the Drums.

In the words of dear staff member Theresa Snow:

“Friends of Casa Marianella were diversely represented at [the] celebration — staff included Aaron, Kate, Cecelia & the JV crew, Rose, Kim, Brooke, Paula & Karen; a few volunteer/english teachers made an appearance and of course our guest of honor! The drum troupe killed it and everyone appreciated the cake Rose picked up. The candles were lit just in the nick of time!”

Creative staff member Aaron Levenson captured the evening beautifully. Here are a few of his photos recapping the celebration!

Convivio takes place at Casa Marianella the last Sunday of every month. Follow the link below to learn more about Convivio and please join us October 29th for another epic celebration!
