RSSG's January Event- Italian Brunch
The Royal Society of St. George, California Branch is growing in size and enjoying delightful events. On January 21, 2018 we hosted a fabulous Italian Brunch in West Hollywood to promote the society and encourage new members. The sold out event on a glorious sunny day featured champagne and cocktails in a beautiful private outdoor garden, followed by a delicious brunch in an intimate private dining room.
The highlight of this wonderful day was a fascinating talk by our member Dr. Craig Paterson (Fellow of The Society of Antiquaries of Scotland) on “British Orders of Chivalry.” Dr. Paterson provided a beautifully illustrated booklet accompanying his talk which included an overview of each order along with many lovely photographs of Her Majesty the Queen wearing them at official functions.
Both Mara New, our Champagne sponsor and Dr. Paterson were presented gifts from the Royal Society for their selfless contributions. Our event resulted in the recruitment of ten new members who we are thrilled to welcome. Plans are now underway for our annual High Tea on Sunday April 22, 2018 to celebrate St. George’s Day.
