The private room at Houlihan’s Restaurant had a festive air on December 20, 2012 as the Westlake Garden Club celebrated the Holidays with a luncheon and installation of officers for 2013. The new board consists of: Regina McCarthy, President; Bill Hock, 1st Vice President; Jean Smith, 2nd Vice President; Marie McCarthy, Treasurer; Sally Knurek and Marge Emblom, Recording Secretary; and Claire Evangelista, Corresponding Secretary. Following the installation of officers and lunch, members and guests were entertained by Cleveland violinist, Mary Beth Ions, performing her solo show, “Violin: Up Close and Personal.” In addition to being an accomplished musician, she has a wonderful, outgoing personality. She delighted the club members and guests with holiday music, old standards and some classical pieces. In between songs, she gave an entertaining monologue about herself, other people, and amusing events. Some members participated in a white elephant gift exchange following the entertainment.
