  • This was followed by a wonderful concluding activity: The Awards of Merit Luncheon at the Buonarroti Ristorante hosted by CCHS President Andrea Blachman, 1st VP Michael Otten, Treasurer John Shea, and Secretary Barbara Kimball with guest host State Assemblyman Kevin Kiley.

For those that have never attended an Annual Meeting or a Symposium, this one was well paced. The program was well conceived. And generally, the activities were appropriately regulated with adequate time to socialize and make new friends. Much gratitude goes to the Communities of Roseville and Lincoln for being so gracious and hospitable. We hope to see you at the Fall Symposium.
