Yesterday's party was wonderful. The Leonardo Hotel provided a great space and prepared a wonderful meal for us. Dig registrars Meghan and Katie put together a fantastic Finds Display. The highlight of the evening, as always, was celebrating the season and spending time with some special guests. Our patron Shelby White, her daughter Tracy (a young volunteer in 1985), and her granddaughter Suniva, attended the festivities.
Heather, dig registrar from 1985 - 2000 surprised us with a visit. She and Paula told stories about life on the dig in 1985 and beyond. Carmella Shimoni, whose husband Musa worked with the excavation during the 1980s and 1990s, also stopped by for a visit. There was lots to see and do not the least of which was seeing everyone "cleaned up."
