Legislative News…Daniel Nnorth and Claudia Schott

With the elections on November 6th, neither the U.S. Congress nor the California State Legislature have been in session.  If you voted (in person or by mail), you made your voice heard; and for that, America is grateful.


California’s Senate and Assembly will convene a new legislative session beginning December 3rd, 2018.

Community Service…Marilyn Clough

Hopefully, many of you helped in your own way with getting out this month’s vote in the mid-term election.  What a relief that’s over!   Now we can concentrate on collecting our volunteer hours; rounding up eyeglasses, hearing aids, books-on-tape, and other useful items; and putting a bag together for Sacred Heart Community Service.   A year-round need exists for all these items (except the election!)  As Thanksgiving season draws near, we in our community can certainly appreciate how fortunate we are personally and that so many organizations, including our chapter, exist to help others.

Nominating Committee…Jan Deluchi

During the next meeting, members will be voting on the 2019 Slate of Officers and Chairpersons. I want to thank all of the members who have volunteered to help us through this year. I hope you will continue to help when needed.

There is one position that remains open for 2019, Public Relations. I hope you will do your part by volunteering now.  Please call Jan.
