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!
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.
vital that we build our future together!
Best Wishes to
you and yours,
