New officers and board of directors, highlighting community service achievements from the past year
ATASCADERO — May marks the beginning of a fresh chapter for Quota of Atascadero as the club’s eight past presidents hosted a delightful afternoon tea in April.
The event served as the platform for outgoing President Deena Pangborn to install the officers and Board Of Directors for the 2023-24 term. Notably, every member of the incoming board had also served in the same positions during the previous year, making it a unique occurrence within the club’s history.
Sandra Rivera, who accepted the position of president for a second term, took a moment to reflect on the highlights of the past year.
She shared an inspiring quote she received during last year’s installation, “The greatness of a community is most accurately measured by the compassionate actions of its members.”
Guided by the president’s theme of “Expanding Quota’s Circle of Love and Service,” the club diligently pursued its mission through the dedicated planning and implementation of various committees.
Rivera provided an overview of the numerous ways in which Quota of Atascadero serves and supports the community. Some of the club’s initiatives included hosting the annual Colony Tea, providing scholarships for local youth, supplying replacement chapter books for Santa Rosa Academic Academy, offering support to Lumina through gas and grocery cards, donating turkeys to The Link, and fulfilling requests from school nurses for essential items.
Additionally, Quota of Atascadero actively participated in hands-on service projects such as Coats for Kids, assisting at ECHO, packing for soldiers, creating kits for CiroFeed, and distributing hearing awareness items to children during Colony Days. The club also proudly sponsored the Grebots, Colony Days committee, the Lighthouse, and the Community Band.
Rivera concluded her remarks with pride, stating, “Yes, we certainly expanded Quota’s circle of love and service.” The dedication and tireless efforts of the club members were evident in the positive impact made within the community throughout the year.
Looking ahead, Quota of Atascadero is excited to announce its primary FUNdraiser, a themed Bunco event open to the community. The next event, with a lively 4th of July theme, is scheduled for June 29.
