April 3
 
During Club Assembly this week, we heard from Bryant Powell and Michael Dungan.
 
 Bryant gave a recap of the golf tournament, and thanked Tracy Yamamoto and Sharon Boyd for their outstanding work on the ball drop and the auction gifts. We had a record-breaking 128 golfers. The committee is starting to meet to plan next year's event. All members are welcome to attend these meetings.
 
 
 
 Mike gave a recap of the pledge letters that were distributed. The response was good, with only eleven outstanding responses. He stressed the importance of the commitment of our leaders and volunteers. For the first time, we have organized committees, rather than having "committees of one".
