The Annual Awards Dinner for the CWEA Redwood Empire Section took place on November 22nd at Zio Fraedo’s Restaurant in Vallejo.  See the pics….

At the awards banquet dinner on November 22, 2013 we will be installing the 2014 Board of Directors.  So, we are currently seeking nominations for the First Year Director position.  You may nominate a fellow Redwood Section member, or you can even nominate yourself.  Please send your nominations to me at bpomeroy573@yahoo.com.

Per our bylaws, we will open nominations to the floor at the dinner, and then the attending members will vote in a new First Year Director.  Please send your nominations to me by November 15th so that we will have time to print up ballots if there is more than one nomination.

Thank you and I look forward to seeing all of you at the awards dinner.
