Greetings Fellow Cabrillians!
It's hard to write my State President's Message at this time due to the fact my term is almost over. It's hard saying good-bye, as I have had so much fun during this past year, meeting new people, going to different towns and all the sites that I have seen.
Now, down to business, during this period I started off with the October State meeting held, in Hanford, at the Hanford Fraternal Hall, for those of us that attended we had a good time. We need to get more of our members to start attending our State Board Meeting as we discuss a lot of issues that our whole club is going through.
Then it was off to The Big Fresno Fair, celebrating Cabrillo Day at the Races, my horse came in last ,but that happens. After the races we all met at Cattlemens Steakhouse for a great dinner, where I was presented a plaque by Mary Martin from Tulare #12. This plaque was a surprise and I will treasure it for life.
The following weekend I traveled with the Costa Boys to Sunnyvale for the Brotherhood of St. Anthony 79th Annual Convention to present Grand President Samantha Medeiros Reyes a plaque on behalf of the Cabrillo Civic Clubs of California. I had a great time, got to meet a few new people and saw some that I haven't seen in years.
Next, was the installation of Officers and Board of Directors for Sacramento #5, which included a luncheon chaired by Elaine McCoy Brown and John Perry. It was their first time being in charge and they both did an outstanding job. I was sworn in as the new incoming President for Sacramento #5 and I am looking forward to it.
Last but not least, I flew into LAX for the 2022 PFSA Annual Convention, where I attended their luncheon and presented a plaque on behalf of Cabrillo Civic Clubs or California to Supreme Grand President Monique Vallance. It was a great lunch and I got to meet a lot of new people from PSFA and saw some old friends, too.
Next, is Convention 2022 to be held at the Doubletree by Hilton in Sacramento on January 20-22,2023, where Sacramento #5 will be hosting and where I will pass the gavel to incoming 2023 State President Janet McKay.
See you all in Sacramento in January! Respectfully, Michael McCoy 2022 Cabrillo State President
