Past President and Former Board Lunch
On Tuesday, March 13, 2011. the Vista Center Board of Directors held its first Past President and Former Board lunch in many years. The festive event was held at the Rosewood Sand Hill Resort in Menlo Park. Despite the rain and wind, over 40 of Vista Center’s present and former leaders from the 1970’s to present day joined us for this gathering.
Board President, Dr. Steve Sanislo opened the lunch with a fun, but very educational quiz that allowed guests to learn how much Vista Center had grown over the past few decades. Executive Director, Pam Brandin delivered a “state of Vista Center” and informed the group that Vista Center would be moving to a new location by 2014.
A wonderful question and answer period was followed by President–elect Meaux Costello discussing the inauguration of the Vista center Legacy Circle, that celebrates all supporters who have named Vista Center in the estate plans or committed to a planned gift. There are currently 20 members.
The event was truly magical with all guests thoroughly enjoying reconnecting with their former colleagues. It was so successful we are planning a similar event next year. Thanks go to the Vista Center Donor Relations Committee for developing, implementing and hosting this event, in particular, the fabulous Chairs, Martha Edwards and Susan Martin!
