Pasta Making Class
Saturday Afternoon, June 15

The Pasta Making Class was taught by member
Joanna Curtis at the PPWC Clubhouse kitchen.
She taught the ladies the basics of making pasta dough,
and forming it into "sheets" that were then
transformed into handmade
tagliatelle and ravioli.

Members Jennifer Jones, Robin Weitz, Margaux Glaser, Joanna Curtis, Terri Webb, Judy Grosh, and Kimberly Giancola.

 The reward came when the pasta was cooked up and the ladies shared a delightful meal together! Marqaux Glaser, Judy Grosh, Terri Webb, Joanna Curtis, President Nancy Niles, Jennifer Jones and Kimberly Giancola.

Chairperson Fay Vahdani stated about the event:"I saw a loving community of all ages coming together to cherish and celebrate their elderly. I saw commitment from businesses in our town to support this event..... what I noticed that everyone had in common was a huge smile! All what this club stands for! Pacific Palisades Woman's Club is all about giving to and caring for our beautiful Pacific Palisades"
