During the meeting, outgoing President Herman Santa reflected upon the many positive aspects of the past year, most notably, the “15th Anniversary Dinner/Dance”, which collected over $1,500 in donations for the scholarship.  Mr. Santa also thanked last year Board of Directors, William Preciado; Vice President, Martha Gonzalez; Secretary, Rene Cifuentes; Treasurer and Connie Giraldo-Silver; Member at Large for their dedicated service and presented them with awards.

Lionel Roman then took the microphone as incoming President.  Mr. Roman acknowledged Mr. Santa for his tireless efforts and many accomplishments during his tenure.  Each new Board of Director took the opportunity to reflect on the accomplishments of the past year and share in the vision for the future.  The Board and the members added their thanks with applause.   Before the dinner, Kevin Kryzda took the oath of the new Board of Directors and five new members were sworn in by the new president.  After the dinner, the members and guests enjoyed the evening with the entertainer Gregg Jackson and his Motown music.
