For sure wife Teddy and I will be at the AMMC Holiday Luncheon in Sacramento. Not so sure about attending any of the other events. At the conclusion of that luncheon the council will have its “Annual Meeting” Nominations will close for officers and directors serving in 2014. All 2013 officers and directors have agreed to stay in place for another year. We still have vacant positions – please notify me if you volunteer to step up from member to officer or director for the coming year. Election and installation of 2014 officers and directors will take place at the annual meeting. If you have an objections please notify me before the 10th; otherwise, you will be considered to agree in the affirmative.
