We now have a new and very much improved set of bylaws. Bravo! The vote was 97 in favor and 2 against. In order to conduct a vote, we were required to have a quorum of all members; which is 1/3 of the membership. We had more than 1/3 participate in the vote. My thanks to Past-President Mel Cohen for initiating the bylaws review process one year ago.
Gary Kearney and Ross Jutsum started things this week off by making us feel as though we all were starring in a Coke commercial as we joined in singing "I'd Like to Teach the World to Sing!" Holding hands on a hilltop, anyone? Yes, please! We followed that up with a rousing chorus of "This is My Country!" Big fun!
A green, leafy walk through one of Pasadena's western-most neighborhoods, filled with charming stairways and a virtual arboretum of mixed tree varieties. One of the shadiest wlaks you can find.
When: Saturday Nov 8th 8am

Phyllis Currie and Ross Jutsum started us off with a home-state bang this week with a rousing rendition of "California, Here I Come!" Chuck Carroll's invocation included this inspiring quotation from Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling: "Imagination is not only the uniquely human capacity to envision that which is not, and therefore the fount of all invention and innovation.
My thanks again to Jim Osterling and Paul Little for organizing and executing a very successful first B2B [Business-to-Business] mixer event last Monday. My thanks to Jim for taking an idea that emerged from a Tyros luncheon and bringing it to life. I attended the mixer and am quite happy that I did. We are all very skilled in our various professions.
The Honorable Jackie Lacey, our Los Angeles District Attorney, oversees a staff of more than 2,100 people who are focused on prosecuting those who are arrested by the police. Unfortunately, these crimes don't get neatly wrapped up in an hour like the TV dramas we are so used to seeing. It involves long days and thousands of people moving through a system that she oversees.
We would appreciate receiving input about preferred preferred social events and programs. Shortly, the social committee will distribute questionnaires seeking your input. No reason to wait. Send me an email with your thoughts. It is our goal to better engage the members, and thus create greater fellowship - and fun - through our social events. As for our weekly programs, what do you think?
In every real estate transaction, there is a buyer and a seller. When the buyer is a real estate developer and the seller is a many-decade property owner, the community usually wants to get involved since the property will change from its current state to what the developer can build, usually for the most profit to his investors. Our club was treated to an impactful Pasadena developer.
