President's Report

By Laura McKaughan
Our Indian summer is here at long last and many of us are enjoying the warmer days by getting outside. Last week NCRA took advantage of a particularly warm Sunday to host its annual Members Picnic at Lake Temescal in North Oakland. The gathering featured a BBQ, iced beverages and a little boche ball and croquet. The event was well attended and successful in getting the word out to new/renewing members.
