On Friday, February 2nd, CityClub hosted it's annual Board/Staff Retreat and we were lucky enough to have four of the eight CityClub founders attend. Colleen Willoughby, Kate Webster, Sue Lile Hunter and Jean Rolfe were all on hand and were kind enough to sit down with Bob Royer to discuss CityClub and it's history. Bob has written an excellent post on his blog, The Cascadia Courier, that we highly recommend you read. Check it out here!

The Jefferson Awards honor the unsung heroes in our communities that go above and beyond to help those less fortunate than themselves. People who work tirelessly for the good of others and don't ask for any thanks, though they probably deserve it. Do your part to remind them that their work does not go unnoticed! Nominate your unsung hero for a Jefferson Award!

As Lynn Briody, Councilmember and Mayor of Sunnyvale, CA, the"Heart of Silicon Valley," put it so eloquently in her recent letter:
"I thought long and hard about this donation. There are so many needs and wants in society at this time by human services organizations that I had to find an overarching reason to support CityClub...
I did so by calling up my memory of how I first became energized by civics and political action.
