Topping of a great year, the EFA celebrated the holiday season of 2017 with our annual party at the Community Room of the Encinitas Library on December 7, 2017. Although sobered by the continuing fires in California, the EFA managed to take out some happy time to mark the end of a successful year of activities and express our appreciation to all who help make this a wonderful local organization. There was much delicious food and merriment, capped by performances of the EFA supported Encinitas Ballet Folklorico and the art work by EFA Student Leadership Council. Raffles of donated items added extra excitement. Thanks to everyone who helped set up and staff the party, and contributed goods and food. EFA members and friends enjoyed coming together and having a good time.
