"SECOND SUNDAY" BREAKFAST REPORT

    Our Service Officer/Breakfast Cashier Rich Meagher reports that our  12/9/18 Sunday breakfast was a big success.  We fed 146 adults, 9 workers and multiple paid children.  Attendance was enhanced by a "Quilt of Valor" presentation at 8:30 and some aggresive advertising mentioning that event and also a Christmas gift giveaway for all attending veterans at a Sew4Vets table in a corner of the dining room.  Thanks to all who pitched in.  And thanks again to our long time server/waitress Loma Meyer, who is "retiring" from the Sunday breakfast after 20 years!

MONTHLY MEETING NOTES FROM 12/4/18

    At a very short executive board meeting held before our Christmas dinner party at Casa Ramos restaurant, we approved donations to Department of California (through District 17) to veterans affected by the Camp fire, our usual December donation to the El Dorado County Food Bank for Christmas baskets, a small donation to the Upper Room in Placerville, and repaid Service Officer Meagher and Commander Kinzel for construction and breakfast expenses incurred in the last month.  We also welcomed a new member at the gathering, Frank Wong, Army veteran of Desert Storm.  Next monthly meeting is Wednesday, January 2nd, 2019.
