Dear Town and Gown Members…
I want to thank you for your continued support as I wind down my second year as your President. My 2018-2020 term has been full of so many highs and lows.
We had fabulous speakers at every one of our General Meetings and our attendance numbers surpassed any that we have ever seen in Town and Gown history! We welcomed guest speakers from our Trojan Family such as President Folt and Coach Helton to Master Sgt. Isreal del Toro, recipient of the Pat Tilman Award for Service. Every one of our guest speakers has been phenomenal and a true treat for all who attended.
We launched a new campaign, DOLLARS FOR SCHOLARS, and raised enough through these generous DFS donations and our two Benefits to fund -2- more endowed scholarships. Thank you all for supporting our mission!
Our board also did a lot of internal work updating our website, introducing online methods to renew membership, pay for lunches, and finally got our handbook on the member portal.
We also started with continued education for our board and introduced a board portal to make our internal operations run more efficiently.
Unfortunately, now we are faced with fighting this horrible global pandemic and the world we once knew is changing. We are all making adaptations and trying to continue our daily lives with as much normalcy as possible given the ever-changing situation. At Town and Gown, our board continues to work tirelessly to ensure we continue our mission and serve our scholars. We are ready to resume operations in our “new normal” as soon as the restrictions are lifted and look forward to being with you all again.
I encourage you to remember that we are all facing this together. Your Town and Gown family is here, and we would love you to keep in touch with us via email, Facebook or Instagram. We are updating our website with new information, forms, and photos regularly.
Stay healthy and safe.
