SANTA BARBARA, Calif. - La Presidente Rhonda Ledson Henderson had something special in mind when she planned this year's La Recepcion del Presidente at Fess Parker's doubletree Resort on Sunday night.
She wanted to make it a reunion and surprised the guests by inviting the first-ever Spirit Lia Parker.
Parker and the Spirits who followed in her footsteps had a chance to enjoy the evening with 22 presidentes.
They posed for photos, danced and enjoyed Mexican food.
The event was the unofficial kick off of this week's Old Spanish Days.
