The meetings were hosted by nine (9) individual families: Yees, Ada Towers, Meyers, Olsons, Baughmans, Radmores, Hashimotos, Matrangas, and Barbara Hull. THANK YOU, gracious hosts, for opening your lovely homes and providing light refreshments for your guests.

opportunities. Information about the past, present, and future of Holy Cross and the city of Rocklin was presented to 97 members representing 74 families. A BIG THANK YOU to all the participants for carving time from your busy schedules to attend, listen and share your perspectives and insights.

Pastor Meyer and I would like to thank Pastor Peperkorn and Walt Wismar for asking us to assist with the campaign drive, granting us the chance to use our time and talents in this effort. We enjoyed meeting members face-to-face in hospitable surroundings.
