Second Dam Dinner a Huge Success

It was a good dam day at the Lake Los Carneros Dam! Over 350 people showed up at this year’s Second Annual Goleta Dam Dinner on August 23.  It was wonderful to see residents get together and enjoy each other’s company while enjoying good food and listening to acoustic sounds by Goodland. Kids (and adults!) had a blast getting their faces painted, and munching on the various desserts people brought from home.

The event, which stemmed from the Love of Goleta workshop in March 2013, was a great success, and we can’t wait to do it again next year!

The Dam Dinner will take place annually on the last Saturday before school begins.  (This will likely be August 22, 2015.  The school calendar for 2015-16 has not been set.)  Mark your calendars and join us next year for this special event, it is a time to get together with friends and family, meet your neighbors and make new friends, and share a meal and love of Goleta.  Follow our Facebook page or register for our email updates on the dinner here.
