On December 16, 2017, harpers and harpists from across southern California gathered for a very special AHS-LA Holiday Extravaganza performance. It was the 20th Holiday Extravaganza organized and led by Elaine Litster! We gathered in the lobby of the Huntington Memorial Hospital in Pasadena (thanks to Bonnie Mohr who coordinates with the hospital) and played Christmas, Hanukkah and general interest music for the assembled guests.  There was a silver balloon in the shape of a '20', sparkling cider and champagne glasses to celebrate with afterward, and the AHS-LA board presented Elaine with a holiday bouquet and a Waterford crystal bowl engraved with '20 years, Extravaganza 2017'.
