Thanks to Carl Ma (PGSS 2003) for hosting the PGSS San Francisco Reunion at their home. There was much discussion and good food which led to some excellent ideas for the sustainability of PGSS. We are starting to develop these already. There are also some ideas for get-togethers between reunions. If you would like more information, write to Carl or Thanks to all who attended.

Last Saturday, a small but companionable group of govies representing 1985 to 2016 gathered at the home of Betsy Krichten Lopez (PGSS 1997) for some good discussion and a nice afternoon. Good luck to Beverly Jogan (PGSS 1997, PGSS Campaign Board member, bottom right of picture) with baby #2.
