President´s Corner

Thanks to all those who came out to celebrate our 115th birthday in January! It was a fabulous afternoon of music and fine company. We're especially grateful for vice president Serena Le who presided in my absence, hospitality chair Suzie Lundeen, historian Katy Wilson, and the fabulous cake we enjoyed from Berkeley's Sweet Adeline bakery.

Our February program will be Monday, February 25 at 1 p.m. It may be the middle of winter, but the Hillside Club will be warmed by our music and camaraderie. Suzie's hospitality team for February will include Serena Le, Sue Waller, and Suzie for refreshments; Geoff Chandler and Sandy Watkins for setup; and Mary Farrell and Grace Rutledge will be our gracious greeters.

Membership Chair HIldred Yost reports that we have one new member who joined us in January Fleur Yano. And Treasurer Sandy Watkins reports that there were two anonymous contributions to the general fund.

Also of relevance: Deborah Long, chair of the Homem committee, requests your assistance. As you may know, the Homem grant is our community outreach program, awarding annual grants to provide music instruction to underserved students. Do you know of any worthy programs the committee should consider? If so, please provide contact information for the organization, and Deborah will do the rest in terms of communication. You can reach Deborah at homem_schlr@etude.org.

Finally, I realize it will take place before we gather for the February program, but in the mean time, Happy Valentine's Day!

Sue Waller
