It is with great pride and gratitude that I write my final note to our beloved SARBS members. It’s an incredible realization when it dawns on you how quickly time flies when you’re having fun! Can you believe we’ve had our Monthly Networking Events and other SYPC sponsored activities for nearly six years now? Thanks to all of you, SARBS members and supporters, we’ve been able to welcome over 1,000 attendees to our Monthly Networking Events, SARBS Study Halls, plant tours, dinner meetings, and more in the last few years! Together we have made the water environment community in the Santa Ana River Basin Section a wonderful network of collaborative and dedicated individuals!
Our SARBS Annual Awards Banquet and Board Installation is this Saturday, March 7, at the Sherman Library & Gardens in Corona del Mar, and at the conclusion of the night, I will be joining many honorable SARBS Past Presidents in the most revered “Past Presidents Club.” I hope to see many of you there, as we have a spectacular event planned. Thank you to Past President Bob Phillips and his family for taking the lead on our Awards Committee and planning the festivities for the night. We still have some seats available, so be sure to get them while you can!
We will also have our Monthly Networking Event on Thursday, March 12, at El Torito in Irvine. As always, this is a great fun-filled event where all those who are interested are invited to attend. I look forward to seeing some familiar faces and some new ones, as well! Be sure to come say hello!
On March 28, 2015, we will have our widely popular SARBS Study Hall. We have some fantastic tutors who are volunteering their time this weekend, so be sure to RSVP online, and we look forward to seeing you there! It will be hosted at Orange County Sanitation District, and as always, we will have coffee and donuts!
Lastly, we will have our SARBS Golf Tournament at Tustin Ranch Golf Club on Friday, May 29, 2015. This is a premier golf course with gorgeous views, and this event supports all of SARBS training events and the CWEA Kirt Brooks Scholarship! Take advantage of this great opportunity and sign up as soon as possible! Not to mention – it’s my birthday, and it would be a fantastic birthday present to have you support SARBS! We are looking for a few more tee sponsorships and donations for our silent auction. All donations are tax-deductible, and we appreciate your generosity!
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. You can reach me anytime at firstname.lastname@example.org or 949.278.5761. I look forward to seeing you at one of our events in the next few weeks!
Have a great day,
Megan Yoo Schneider
SARBS President, 2014-15
