Dear Fellow Cabrillians;

It is so exciting to begin this year's journey as your State President. I have received invitations to a variety of Cabrillo Club functions throughout the state for many events including breakfasts, luncheons and dinners.

I am looking forward to Hilmar's breakfast on February 24th, followed that same day by a membership luncheon in Hanford for Kings County. My own Yolo Cabrillo Club's Membership Dinner on Saturday, March 9th, will be followed by Tulare's Membership lunch on March 10th. I've also received gracious invites to Sacramento Cabrillo Club's Valentine Dinner on February 15th and their fabulous Crab Feed on March 2nd.

All of these events are a joyous way of celebrating our Portuguese heritage and fundraising for our important causes. Obviously, this is going to be a very busy and rewarding year. Please let me know when your Club celebrations, events or gatherings are planned, so I may do my best to attend.

In addition, the State Scholarship Screening and State Board Meeting are planned for April 25-27 in San Diego at the Crowne Plaza Hotel. This is a terrific place for a meeting, San Diego is a mecca for visitors and the scholarship screening is always worthwhile and satisfying. The review of the scholarship applications is gratifying and allocating our funds to these deserving students is valuable to our future. Please join us in San Diego for our April State Board Meeting and Scholarship Screening and participate in the important distribution of our scholarships to the outstanding recipients.

Also, there is still time to sign up for the Carnival Cabrillo Cruise on the ship "Imagination" for our October State Board Meeting. We will be setting sail on October 17th (I can't forget that date because it's my 65th birthday) and leaving the Port of LA for the open sea, docking in Ensenada and returning to LA on the 20th. Sign up for a fun filled trip with your fellow Cabrillians!

I look forward to traveling throughout the State this year, speaking with Cabrillo Club members everywhere and listening to ideas that will help energize our Cabrillo Clubs.

It is vital that we build our future together!

Best Wishes to you and yours,

Elizabeth Castro Kemper
2019 State President
