Courtney is volunteering with Reading Partners again. She is working with a fifth-grade student, Kelly. “I very much enjoy being a volunteer for this organization and it’s exciting to see how they continue to improve children’s literacy, one student at a time.”
Annette and Adrian were in London and the English countryside for an extended Thanksgiving break. “It was a perfect blend of visiting family and friends and all our favorite spots in London … and not a single day of rain for 12 days straight!”
Maura began volunteering with the Bay Area Doula Project as part of their training team. She is excited to be involved with this organization and looks forward to helping train future volunteers.
Chuck tried curling with a group of friends. “It was cold and fun and will make me appreciate the Olympics so much more.”
Annette plans to attend the Wisdom 2.0 conference where an exciting mix of leaders from business and technology will come together with spiritual leaders including Eckhart Tolle (author, “The Power of Now” and “A New Earth”) and Sharon Salzberg (author, “Real Happiness”) to engage in a dialogue around how to live with greater mindfulness and purpose.
Courtney’s sports activities continue. Her mixed-doubles team won the San Francisco title and Bay Area title last year and made it to the finals for the Nor Cal title. She hiked to the top of Half Dome in August and continues to run, including the Bridge-to-Bridge 10K in October.
Justin sailed in the Three Bridge Fiasco on Jan. 25. A fleet of 357 single- and double-handed boats set out on a tour of San Francisco Bay. The lack of wind made for an interesting journey, but Justin had a great time nonetheless.
Chuck attended the Family Wealth Advisors Council meeting in January. He participated in two full days of meetings, including hearing Bob Veres of Insider’s Forum present on the future of super firms.
Now that Justin is living in the suburbs, he and his wife Katherine are looking forward to learning the ins and outs of gardening this spring and summer. To prepare, they started a compost pile and fixed up the raised beds in their yard.
Annette, Chuck and Justin got some time on the San Francisco Bay during the 34th annual America’s Cup, which took place July 4-Sept. 21.
