Thank You University Retirement Community for Their Continued Support
Many thanks to all of our generous friends and worshipers from the Interfaith/Vespers Committee at the University Retirement Community. For many years, the committee has supported the work of Davis Community Meals through collections at their weekly services. For this year alone, they have donated $9,656 bringing their total donations over the years to greater than $40,000.
A very special thanks to Virginia McRostie for her time and efforts over the years.
Hannah Biberstein-In Memoriam
Hannah was one of the founders of Davis Community Meals and on our Board of Directors for several terms over many years, she passed away this past April 26th . Hannah was an integral part of many of our programs and always an enthusiastic supporter. She championed the causes of social justice and the alleviation of poverty and homelessness through many community endeavors. Our sympathy and condolences to Ernie Biberstein and the Biberstein children and grandchildren for their loss.
20th Anniversary Dinner- Thank You
We want to thank everyone who joined us on April 14th to celebrate DCM’s 20th Anniversary.
More than 100 friends, volunteers, and guests, who through the years have helped make our success possible, shared great food prepared by our volunteer cooks as well as stories from those who helped founded Davis Community Meals (the picture shows current board members serving guests). Assembly member Mariko Yamada stopped by and presented a proclamation from the California Assembly commemorating DCM’s contributions.
We were also able to acknowledge Executive Director Bill Pride, who also is celebrating his 10 year anniversary in that post. Bill works tirelessly to make sure all our programs are successful.
It was great to celebrate this milestone with some of those who have made our success possible.
