Happy Thanksgiving to all who belong to this Valley. We have much to be thankful for this year. The long project to move into a new building has come to fruition. There is still a lot of unpacking to do, spaces to be arranged, and storage to be configured. It is a lot of ongoing work, but exciting.
We owe thanks to the staff and volunteers who worked so hard to sort through all the "stuff" in the old building and chose what to keep and what to retire. They packed it, watched it being moved into the new building, and now the unpacking is the final step. The RiteCare Childhood Language Clinic staff is also configuring their space to accommodate our clinic clients. Thanks to everyone who pitched in to do the hard work. The old building is vacant and Home Depot has the keys.
It is an exciting time. We have had an extraordinary volume of website traffic searching for information about our new home. It is a new landmark in Mission Valley, easily seen from the freeway as thousands of cars pass by every day. It is a beautiful, eye-catching building. We can all be proud of it.
Our stated meeting on December 6 is the inaugural event. We will return to our dress code of coat and tie. Plan to join us at 6pm in the new Corinthian room. The cost will be $35 per person. As always, reservations are required for the dinner.

Here is a glimpse of the interior of the building. The main entry hall is the first thing you will see when you walk through the exterior doors.
The staircase is impressive! However, the building is fully ADA compliant with an elevator that takes you to the top floor.

New Dinner Policy
Our dinners will not look the same in our new dining room. Ranch Events will still be our caterer but food will be prepared in their home kitchen facilty and transported to the meeting.
The December meeting will be our first event in our new facility. Regular meals will be served at your table. The price-per-person will be $35. Our policy is evolving as we test the new facility and become comfortable with off-site catering.
