Last week was a great week for the Club. We had a full-house meeting at the intimate Hobler House where Jeff Gould was announced as the President-Elect. Then as the leader of a group of clubs, we closed out the largest project that the Club has ever taken on - the Homefront Playground. Lastly, we inducted two new members into the Club, Minkyo Chenette and Shreesh Tiwari, and their membership takes up to 36, higher than it has been in some time.Read more
