Re: [NorCalSBay] Get the word out! The Festival of Cultures & Annual Gathering, Jan 26 Palo Alto
I also recall that the bulk of our investment funds originated from 2 events: 1) t-shirt sales at the DC conference to celebrate the 25th anniversary of PC, about $14k; and 2) about $10K we earned from hosting the natl conference at UC Berkeley in the early 90's.
As treasurer at that time, I earmarked the money for an endowment fund - a move that was not popular with the whole board. I wanted to secure some longevity for NorCal. Some on the board thought it was hoarding and that the money should have been donated to needy projects. At any rate, it has yielded some positive benefits over the years.

Gathering, Jan 26 Palo Alto
NOTE - My understanding of our history is that:
The AGM-Conference in the South Bay has been held over 20+ years ago when
South Bay Melvia Wong was the then long-term serving NorCal Treasurer and
other active South Bay RPCVs, like her brother, Kendall Mau, Harry Smith?
Val? Kinney? Peter Ross and others, put on the Most Profitable-ever for
NorCal South Bay conference. That $$ legacy has been wisely invested!
So, continuing on with new RPCV energy, talent and time....
best wishes to all for a Happy Healthy new 2013,
