     Upcoming Activities

    Fellow Compatriots,

    This is a reminder to have your registration and payment for April 18th, Irvine, CA State meeting in by March 15th. See contact information below.

    At our February meeting, the decision was made to hold our April 18th meeting in Irvine, CA, instead of at our normal University of Redlands location. This meeting date coincides with the 140th Annual Spring Meeting of the California Society, Sons of the American Revolution in Irvine, CA. A unanimous vote was taken and approved of by all of the members present, to hold a short meeting at the state societies Saturday luncheon event.

    Our members will attend the Non-registered Saturday Luncheon (see link below), which will cost $35.00 each. Please download the form at the link below, print, and mail your reservation form and check to the address specified in the document, before the March 15 deadline, if you are planning to attend.

    We will also be congratulating our Chapter Essay Contest winner Heidi Lai.

    Her esaay has been selected as the state winning essay and has been advanced to the National Contest.

    She will be honored at the Youth Awards program at the Luncheon!

    Dress will be business attire with a sports coat or jacket, tie optional. More details will be discussed at our March meeting.

    The state event will be held at the Wyndaham Irvine Hotel at 1791 Von Karman Ave., Irvine Ca 92614 on Saturday, April 18th, 2015.

    Shawn Price will be attending and has a few seats available in his van for a carpool. Contact Shawn to see if he has any seats available.
