Goodbye 2023, Hello 2024!

Over one hundred SCBC members gathered Friday night at the Santa Rosa Veterans Memorial Hall for dinner and conversation at our annual membership meeting. The delicious spread was catered by Lombardi’s, with beverages donated by Old Caz and Barbara Phillips/Inspiration Vineyards. The group was well-balanced between longtime members and those who just joined.

Board President Jenny Bard welcomed the crowd, made introductions, and thanked everyone who contributed; she also acknowledged outgoing Board members Barbara Phillips, Mike Lipelt, and Thea Hensel.

Executive Director Eris Weaver gave a brief Annual Report, with financial statements and highlights from 2023 and a hint at 2024 goals.

Longtime volunteers Marc Azevedo (left, with President Bard) and Lois Gause were feted for their contributions and given bike-themed medals.

Four candidates for the 2024 Board – Lauren Fuhry, Eric Lofchie, Joe Plaugher and Calum Weeks – made brief statements. Digital voting is open through January 26 – if you are a member and haven’t received a link to the ballot, let us know!

A good time was had by all.
