Well our fiscal year is now ending and this is my last newsletter as President of the Chapter. I am thankful and honored to have had the opportunity to serve as your President for the last two years. I cannot say it was not challenging, but I was very fortunate to have capable and dedicated Board members to serve with me – I already miss them!!
I also want to thank the members of the Board and the Chapter for the elegant gift presented to me. I sincerely appreciate all of the support of the Board and our members during my term and am pleased that our Chapter membership has increased over the last two years.
I look forward to continuing to see all of you in our future meetings and events. I wish Fukuyo Tanaka the best of luck during her term as the new Chapter President and to the entire Board for their commitment to our organization.
President: Fukuyo Tanaka
First Vice President (Programs): Leonard Brinkers
Second Vice President (Hospitality): Cynthia Conant
Third Vice President (Publicity): Erin Rowlett

Our Sayonara Party was held on June 27th at the Courtyard by Marriott in Monterey Park. We had a good turnout at this new and beautiful hotel. We all enjoyed seeing each other in person and getting to meet our new Board members.
Here are a few of the beautiful arrangements for the party provided by some of our Board members:
Let us have continued friendship through flowers,
