Presidential Nominations – Current President Dave Underwood is not running for reelection. Please think about throw-ing your hat in the ring!
October 5th – Mike and Marisa Hash - Grapes of Wrath. Mike reported that he wasn’t well and had to skip the event. Mike, Pat and Tony all reported it was a great drive. There were 10 cars (16 people). Lunch was at Carol’s Restaurant on West Capitol. Thanks for coming out!
October 12th – Pat Galvin and Dave Underwood – Teddy Bear Run. Pat reported that there were 12 cars (18 people) for a successful event. Not as many kids were housed so a small turnout from them. The kids were very appreciative. One young man, dressed in his football uniform, came up to say thank you and shook his hand. Very moving. We got a vari-ety of items, including Target gift cards. Afterward, we went to lunch at Flaming Grill.
We got a thank you letter from Danielle Garrity on behalf of the Sacramento Receiving Home. He will share it at the next meeting.
October 26th – Tony Pantoja and Bob Byers - Halloween Rally. Tony reported we had a good turnout. We drove through Old Sacramento and Land Park. Costumes were great! His granddaughter, Carmen, won the costume prize. Katie and Kyle Owen won the rally quiz; after a roll-off! Lunch was outside in the great weather at Selland’s Market on Broadway. That worked out well. Thanks all for coming out!
