We thank last week's speaker, Chief Executive Officer Nestor "Nes" Fernandez, for updating us on all the good and exciting news from Telegraph Hill Neighborhood Center. Tel Hi now operates out of five locations and serves more than 1,200/day, from pre-school children to senior citizens. Since 2008-2009, Tel Hi's operating budget has grown from $1.8 million to $8 million.

Among a staff of 100, mostly full-time, only six hold administrative positions, including our very own Yvonne Curley, Tel Hi Development Director.  

Nes expressed appreciation to our club and to individual members for generously supporting Tel Hi with donations and volunteers. 

Club members filled a table at the recent Taste of Tel Hi, and each one donated to help the event reach its fundraising goal. Seated Aline Estournes and Yvonne Curley. Standing, l-r: Herman Jones, Randall Scott, Erik Scheller, Steve Ike and Roger Kaufman.
