Update from the last week
So, it's been an exciting couple of weeks. Last Friday was our annual golf tournament supporting NCUD's efforts. We had an amazing event, doubling the revenue from the previous year. If you've not had the chance to play Poppy Ridge Golf Course you really should! Better yet, mark your calendar for July 18th, 2008, the date of next year's tournament! Thanks to all our sponsors, golfers and especially our golf committee this was a fabulous event.
Last Wednesday we reached an important milestone. As the press release I posted last week suggested, we had a signing ceremony where the four credit unions who have come together to make Community Trust Credit Union of East Palo Alto a reality. In the picture are the CEO's of Addison Avenue Credit Union, Patelco Credit Union, Stanford Federal Credit Union and Community Trust Credit Union (Modesto). Now once we receive our permits from the city of East Palo Alto we can begin building out the building and push toward opening day!
Lastly, earlier this week I was privileged to be part of a group that planned next year's Urban Youthworker's Institute. What a joy to work with an amazing group of leaders to seek God for the May '08 conference. They are beginning to post the general sessions from last year on podcasts through itunes. I suggest you pick up some of them. I want to thanks Larry Acosta and the UYWI team for being faithful to the vision God has given them.
