Kick into Summer Celebration

By Annette Callari, Allied ASID; CMG

If you live in SoCal, then you know Summer hit us with a vengeance.  We went from Spring-like mild days to Death Valley heat overnight.  Speaking of Death Valley, did you know the all-time temperature high for the US was recorded there in 1913?  A mere 134 degrees!

But I digress.  What I really wanted to share with you was a recap of the great celebration Daltile in Anaheim hosted at their Design Gallery on June 20th.

Their Kick into Summer Gala was a kick-up-your-heels event with gourmet BBQ, soft (and not-so-soft) beverages and an intro to their newest tile and stone introductions.  All set to the background music of a great Western style band.  These people know how to throw a party!
