Glad Midsommar! Happy Summer Solstice!
It’s hard to believe we have arrived to June and the end of our LANC calendar year. I’ll be continuing on as President for 2020-2021 with the board’s permission and looking forward to finding creative ways for us to socialize!
I am thankful for the talents of many to keep us connected be it by Zoom, phone calls or emails – it all matters! We look for the “silver linings” in our new day to day routines and appreciate the little things.
I invite you to walk the Los Altos Hills pathways and look for the hand painted rocks with inspirational messages by neighbors and local students. I have included some photos of my rock discoveries.
I am happy to report we have had success using Zoom for our board meetings, investment club, book group discussions and our programs. A big thank you to Robert Booth for his special presentation, “Update on the Coronavirus”. We had 70 devices logged in and more than 70 participants! We look forward to our presentation with David Sloss on Thursday, May 28th! The Investment Club has voted to continue meeting every 2 weeks on Monday evenings through our “shelter in place” and we are close to 20 participants at every meeting. The book group has continued on with their first Thursday meetings with many in attendance as well. I look forward to Genealogy’s first Zoom meeting on May 28th and hope to see some new faces!
Our social schedule is being pushed out as Santa Clara county continues our “shelter in place” to the end of May. We will consider resuming TGIF for July at the next board meeting. Our June installation luncheon is also postponed to July/August as well. In the meantime, we have new publicity postcards and LANC business cards ready to distribute to attract new members. Thanks again to Cam Chan!
It’s not too late to join our committees and board, I encourage you to step up and help out – it is fun and rewarding to be part of such a lively and connected community! We are still actively seeking a Vice President and if interested please contact me. In the meantime, keep well and stay healthy!
Lastly, we send our heartfelt condolences to Alan Eagle and his family. Joanne Eagle recently passed away.
