After the Cattlewomen’s Association sponsored the August dinner at the Buellton Senior Center, one member of the group offered to host, prepare and serve the Sept. 27 dinner, with the help of some of her friends. Sherry Musgrove served a Mexican-themed dinner for 60 guests, who enjoyed her chicken enchiladas, fiesta salad, Spanish rice and homemade refried beans, topped off with warm cobbler and ice cream for dessert.
Musgrove also supports the Solvang and Buellton Senior Centers with baskets for raffles. She hosts dinners at her ranch in Santa Ynez for the Elks Queen contestant, Therapeutic Riding Program, the Santa Ynez Sportsman Association and other organizations.
After dinner, Buellton City Council and mayoral candidates spoke to the group about themselves. Holly Sierra, who is running in Buellton’s first-ever race in which the mayor will be elected separately from the City Council members, attended. Marcilo Sarquilla, a former Buellton school board member, and Foster Reif, a current member of the Buellton Planning Commission, spoke, as did incumbent council member Leo Elovitz.
