On January 20, the Olivas Adobe Historical Interpreters held their annual celebration and installation of officers dinner at the Ventura Marina Park Clubhouse. Appetizers, drinks and dinner prepared by the docents was served.
Prior to the installation A Steal That Gift Game and an auction for fine art and gift bags was held. The hundreds attending heard County District Attorney Erik Nasarenko install the new officers. They are Bob Sandler President, Mary Thompson Vice President, Marsha Brumana Secretary and Glenda Jackson Treasurer.
“It was an honor to swear in the newly elected Olivas Adobe board members,” said Erik Nasarenko. “The Olivas Adobe is a cultural and civic touchstone, which connects people from all over the world to California’s only remaining Monterey style adobe from the Rancho era. The board members will serve as historic interpreters for the Olivas Adobe, ensuring that the past is protected and the site’s many special events are accompanied by these wonderful docents. Congratulations, and thank you for volunteering your time, talent and passion to the Adobe and the public it serves!”
Vice President Mary Thompson thanked Erik “A big thank you to Erik Nasarenko for officially swearing us in. We are looking forward to serving our community in 2024. Our agenda is jam packed with family fun events to keep the history of the Olivas Adobe alive.”
