President´s Corner

The March program will be Monday, March 25. We will begin with our semi-annual Business Meeting at 12:30 pm, followed by the musical program at 1 pm. Once again, I am so happy to rely on Serena Le, our first vice president, to preside over the meeting and program in my absence.

The important business of the 12:30 meeting will be the report of the nominating committee and the election of next year's slate of officers. We will also consider a motion to modify our bylaws by eliminating the October business meeting and by slightly restructuring the Membership Application form (please see attached page).

Hospitality chair Suzie Lundeen's team for March will include Lisa Hire, Marilyn Siegel, and guest Nancy Teshima for refreshments; Suzanne Siebert and Grace Rutledge for setup; and Caroline Kim and Dena Anthony as greeters.

We have three new members who joined us in February – Ingrid Kepler-May, Peggy Kirihara, and Elizabeth Tilles. Treasurer Sandy Watkins reports that there were contributions to the YAC from the East Bay Alumni Chapter of Sigma Alpha Iota and to the general fund from Peggy Kirihara.

Looking ahead—plans are well underway for the Silver Tea in April. This is our once–a–year fund raiser which determines the amount of scholarship money that we will have to distribute in 2020. I hear rumors that we will be treated to another outstanding confection created by Jason Schulterbrandt! You won't want to miss this outstanding event.
