DC210 June News

Hi District Chapter 210 members,

Our July meeting is on Saturday the 17th of July. Please make plans to attend and support us and CPSA National.

Saturday, July 17, 2010 starting at 11:00 am.
Livermore Adult School, 1401 Almond Ave, Livermore CA

This is an important meeting for us and we need to have you attend if it is at all possible. There is work to do ~ we are going to work on the packets that are distributed to all the convention attendees for the National board. The more hands we have to help… the faster it will go and the more fun we will have!

Thank you to everyone who has been working hard to get us to this point of preparation. I am very proud to represent you all as your president and I appreciate each and every one of you.

I hope you are getting excited about our convention this year. Below is some information that might help you make plans.

Members activities start on Wednesday for check-in and hospitality night.

Please let National and us know if you are planning to attend, so we can be sure to connect and say hello. Do not hesitate to call other members if you would like to find a room mate or someone to ride with. If you do not have a current roster let Linda Huffman (linda.huffman@yahoo.com) or me (lindaloder@sbcglobal.net). We will email you one.
