The Oakmont County Club, decked out in all its holiday finery, is a sight to behold. Those who had the privilege were members and guests of the Davitt Group on Dec. 14. The 75 who filled the Garden Room were well-rewarded with the club's signature brunch and entertainment by Glendale Community College's Madrigal Singers under the able baton of Peter Green. Green is the division chairman of the music division on campus.
The Davitt Group was formed three years ago, at about the time Supt./President Emeritus John Davitt retired after 21 years at the helm of the college. A number of staff members retired with him but didn't want to lose their ties to the college — hence the Davitt Group, currently meeting once a year at holiday time.
Brunch organizers Jack and Glady Kabateck kept the action moving with a combination of good eats, entertainment and presentations. Glady Kabateck was employed at the college for 23 years as coordinator of the adult re-entry program. She worked closely with tablemate Angela Battaglia, a 25-year veteran of the college administration, working as scholarship coordinator.
