Introduce Yourself: Mark Rogo
What's Your Story?
Hi, my name is Mark Rogo. By all accounts, I have led a very blessed life with my trophy wife of 43 years, Lynn Mirisch Rogo. I grew up in La Ca ñ ada, the son of a used machinery dealer. My focus was very much on the law and politics. In high school, I excelled in the music program, becoming a conductor and drum major. 

Anniversary Thank You
Thank you to everyone who envisioned and brought our incredible 3rd Anniversary Celebration to life! More photos to come! Thank you to member & photographer Barry Levine for capturing this special event.
