High Five’s & Announcements:
Rich Aeling and several other members went on a scouting weekend to organize the Mexicali build. This year we will be constructing 2 medical buildings and we will need many volunteers for this. It will be the weekend of March 23rd, details to follow. The budget is $8k-$10k
Also, the pajama drive is in full swing, it’s not too late to bring in those much-needed p.j.’s for the “Friends of Scott Foundation” that benefits kids with cancer. Give all pajamas to Kevin Svetich.
The bike build is on 12/10 which will be at Aelott on Mission. We need lots of hands for that
Our very thoughtful and generous president Tina gave out thank you gifts for going the extra mile. Thank you, Tina, for always recognizing a job well done!! There was a special presentation to Rich Aeling, someone who constantly and selflessly gives so much of his time. Good job everyone, we are the best club out there and it’s because of our members!!
We welcomed up Renata Sahigian and presented her with a check in the amount of $25,000 from the proceeds raised at the annual 5k that was in October. Jim Ponder made the presentation and showed a video. Renata spoke and thanked everyone for all that has been done to help the MS organization.
