Our club held it's demotion party on Saturday June 25, 2016.   It was a beautiful sunny day in Southern California and the weather was fantastic.  Nice outdoor party and everyone had a great time.
Our outgoing President, Marie Valencia, thanked her Board Members for making her year a great success.   According to her, "she could not have made it without her board members".  She also thanked every member of our club for helping in one way or the other toward the success of our club. She handed out gifts to her Board members in a show of appreciation.
Also present was the Jazz Band from Cleveland High School.  They entertained us with good Jazz tones from the past.   Dave Friedman gave each member of the Band a certificate and thanked them for a job well done. A donation of 500.00 from GVNR was also presented to the Band Leader with a promise to help the Band during his year. 
PDG Eli Gauna and PDG Les Grossman were on hand to swear-in Dave Friedman as President and his Board members.  On behalf of the President and Board of GVNR, we say "thank you" to PDG Eli Gauna and PDG Les Grossman.
Present at the party were members from our Chatsworth club.  Tamara Chezick and her husband, Karan  Norman, Jill Saltzman and Kris Fuess.
It was a beautiful picnic party and we all had a great time.  Here are some highlights from the party.
