President’s Club:
In lieu of the President's club, it is with sadness President Stuart shared the passing away of  Jim Jackson.  Jim was a long-time member, former Mayor, and great individual.  Next week we will share some time celebrating his life during our Program.

Celebrating 120 years of family business, Rose Ann shared with us the impressive history of Granite Rock.  The business was formed in the Bay Area Region using resources from Aromas to help build our region we love today.  AR Wilson quarry is the main source - largest crushed rock quarry in Western United States that has been with the Wolpert Family since 1900. Rose Ann shared the challenges that faced the business down the years and how the family had to change strategies to address the same. Since 2008 a new generation of leaders carry on the same values that Granite Rock was built upon. Click here to see her presentation https://vimeo.com/470102855
