Membership News
Honorary Life Member
Congratulations to brother Joe Revolinski on achieving Honorary Life Membership!

We now have 2 Honorary Life Members to recognize at our next business meeting!
Exodus 90 "Graduates"
Congratulations our Exodus 90 trailblazers!

Brothers Carl Biscevic, Morry Aufderheide, John Gutierrez, Tim Logsdon, Luke Logsdon, Tom McCaffrey , DJ Corral and Manny Figuereido all completed their Exodus 90 journey on Saturday, November 23.

Be sure to congratulate them and listen to their stories next time you see them.

VIP and Shining Armor Awards
I have been in touch with Supreme's Fraternal Mission for Membership department regarding the Very Important Proposer (VIP) Awards.

Every member who proposes (i.e. recruits) at least 2 new members lifetime should automatically be enrolled in the VIP Club and will receive awards at certain levels. This is all handled by Supreme but due to a glitch in the system, the awards were not immediately sent.

Good news for our Council, the awards are on their way. Everyone who has recruited at least 2 members but were not previously recognized will get their certificate and lapel pins soon - hopefully at the business meeting.

On a related note, the California State Council is also awarding the Shining Armor award for members who recruit at least 2 new members during this Columbian Year. For new members who joined this year, the requirement is to recruit only 1 new member.
