Focus: Embarking on our 2nd Century of service.

As our centennial celebrations have drawn to a close, it’s time for our Club to start thinking about our vision - where do we want to see our Club in the future? President Jules took us through the current state, including a synopsis of our Club and Foundation. Questions were posed to members, asking for their feedback about what they’d like to see our Club focus on in the future. Cindy Duggal discussed our Club’s major charitable committees and what they’ve each been up to, so that our members could get a better understanding of how much we actually do in both our community and abroad. Visions for each committee was also presented. Click here for the details from that portion of the meeting.
