Dear Fellow Cabrillians:

Wow!! Two months of 2017 have already passed. I don’t know if it’s because I am getting older, or what, but it seems like the 1st of each month is coming around faster and faster. However, when I talk to the younger generation they are saying the same thing.

I again want to thank all of you who attended the Annual Convention at Tachi Palace in Lemoore, hosted by Kings County Club #9.
Because of your attendance, generosity and support, the Convention was a success.

Thank you to my club and thank you very much to members from the Tulare and Fresno clubs, who gave up your time to help our club. I will never be able to thank all of you enough.

On February 8th, I attended the Testimonial Dinner and Official Visit of St. Anthony Grand President Alton Schlag and First Lady and Past Grand President Linda Schlag in Visalia. The dinner was very good and it was very nice listening to the music by Alton’s Red River Dutchmen Band. It was a very enjoyable evening.

On February 26th, I attended Tulare club’s Membership Dinner. Sopas were served for lunch and were very tasty. It brought back many memories of my father and uncle and later my brother when they prepared the sopas for the Hanford Celebration.

Thank you Louie Martin for “shepherding” our members during 2016. You did a great job!! You will be a hard act to follow, but I will do my best to represent all of the members as State President.
Also, a big thank you to my Standing & Special Committee Chairpersons, who agreed to continue in their positions.

April 20th to 22nd, the Tulare club will be hosting the April State Board and we will be screening the Scholarship Applications to determine who will be our scholarship recipients. I am encouraging and hoping that many of you will attend and participate in the screening of the applications. It is quite a rewarding experience. It always boggles my mind, how so many of the applicants have a 4.0 and better grade point average and still participate in so many other activities. I don’t know when they find time to sleep!!

I look forward to attending the activities held by our clubs during 2017. I would appreciate your sending me a list of your events so I may plan my schedule. I am very honored to be representing all of our members as your 2017 State President.
As we forge ahead in 2017, may we remember the goals of our club, to continue to support Americanization, Civic Affairs, Scholarship, Membership, the fight against cancer and involving our youth, as we continue to recognize and honor our Portuguese heritage!

Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
