As I pondered the subject for this month’s missive to you, one word has continued to surface: GRATITUDE. I am so very grateful for the opportunity to work with a terrific team in serving SFBAC. It was 2 years ago this month that I stepped into the role as the president and I want to make sure you know that everything we enjoy, experience and learn is a result of many hours offered enthusiastically by an outstanding group of coaches serving as our board and committee members.
I would especially like to acknowledge our Treasurer and Executive Committee member, Ray Pifferrer, for his leadership, innovation and support. Ray has been an angel to work with, someone we could always count upon and accepted responsibility joyfully and with competency.
I am sorry to announce that as of May 31st, Ray stepped down from his role as Treasurer in order to attend to the needs of his family. We have become a family, working closely together as a board. All of us are saddened that we will not continue to enjoy his lively humor, thoughtful guidance and ability to encourage us when we have been challenged.
Thank you Ray for pushing through personal difficulties to be here for us. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
Ricci and all of the SFBAC board and members
