President's Reception

Please join us for the 3rd annual President's Reception, to be held at the home of HCSB president Albert S. Lindemann, on Sunday, October 9, 3-6 p.m.  This event, coinciding with the start of the academic year, kicks off HCSB's own year of social and culturally-enriching activities organized for Harvard alumni in the 805 area.

The President's Reception is open to all local Harvard alumni, though we encourage you to become a HCSB member.  Please have a look at Past Events on this website to see the many events organized by our club.  Membership is only $45/year, which helps to bring you these events and to maintain our club.

As was the case last year, we will be holding a casual wine-tasting.   If you wish to participate, please bring 1-2 bottles of a wine you feel is a good bargain (balancing quality against reasonable price).  Be prepared to give a brief description of what you brought before we all sample it together.  We will discuss the merits of each submission.  Please bring your own tasting glass if possible (but we will have some extras).

Last year the wine-tasting was a big success as a mixer, but the wine-tasting is entirely voluntary; its point is to make the reception more appealing, not to limit the attendance. An array of other beverages, alcoholic and non-alcoholic, will be provided by HCSB. There is, in short, no need for those who are not participating in the tasting to bring anything. But those who are bringing wine for the tasting should keep their bottles separate from the others (separate tables will be provided for both). We plan a short period at first of mixing (3:00 to 3:30), then the tasting of the wines, and then another hour or so of informal mixing, after introducing the president and board members.

The Lindemanns' home is near the end of Tunnel Road in Santa Barbara.  Parking for the reception is possible on Tunnel, though parking places fill up on weekend afternoons by hikers. There are also spaces for about ten cars in a lot adjoining the home and around five more closer to the house.  Please car-pool if possible.  To facilitate carpooling to this event, we have created a forum category (“Carpooling”) on this website.  If you wish to carpool (desiring a ride or offering a ride), please post a notice at the forum.

Due to space restrictions, we are limiting the number of attendees to 35.  RSVP here on this page with your email address and we'll send you the exact address a few days before the event.
