President's Message

An early Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! I would like to express a special thanks to Bruce & Kathy McGee, Margarida Eidson, Carin Kally and Abbi Hanoch who led us in the sale of 300 cases of Poinsettia’s. Think about it for a second, 1,800 beautiful plants decorating homes and business because of our efforts, and we raised money to help support many wonderful causes.  Also, thank you to those who made multiple trips to deliver the Poinsettia’s.
This Thursday we have a very special program. The Ventura Police Department will be presenting their canine program and I am sure a special canine officer will be there as well. This should be a fun and interesting meeting, also a great time to bring a guest.
If you have not signed up for our December 15 Christmas Party, you can do so at Thursday’s meeting or feel free to call me at 805-551-6581 to register your attendance. Guests are $25.00. It will be a fun evening so please join us.
See you on Thursday
Thank you
President 2022-23
