    We've had over 100 people at our Bastille Day Pool Party each of the last two years.  On Sunday, July 14th at noon, we’re doing it all again! Hosted by the lovely Len Handeland and Byron Hancock (long-time members of MAX), this is one of our major annual parties for the MAX community and their guests.

    Byron and Len have a beautiful home in Sonoma.  They kindly open their home for us each July so that we can celebrate all things French.  The weather been sunny and beautiful each year for this event.  Two years ago, the thermometer was over 100 degrees.  To say the least, that kept the bar busy!

    This year the event will be featuring wine, the French 75 champagne cocktail, beer, beautiful men in swimsuits, a delightful poolside setting, berets, and a magnificent French feast.

    We hope you will join us.  This event is sure to sell out.  This is a one of a kind celebration in a stunning locale!

    Bastille Day, Sunday, July 14, 2019, 12 noon to 5 p.m. in Sonoma

    Address will be provided to registered guests starting on July 8th, the Monday before the event.

    Keep an eye on this space.  More details and pricing coming soon.
