Last Weeks Program

Nancy Proyect from the Orange County Citizens Foundation gave an informative description of the organization, which includes housing and the loss of it. It’s mission is to understand and recognize the interdependence od economic & environmental concerns and the impact on the Quality of Life in Orange County, and to act as a catalyst in focusing the public & private resources of the County on balanced planning & decision making. Good program.

Phil Brillante : Phil issued his safety warning which focused on the “Winter still to come!”

The weather’s been fine, but don’t get caught in an unguarded moment. Black ice can still threaten around the house on railings, steps, roadways etc. Be on guard. – Also, Phil was given an award for being a three-time award donor to the Paul Harris foundation. Be aware that this should have read “four time donor”.  The Club’s apology, Phil!
