BIG TEN CLUB
Ten Club Person of the Year Recap
Another excellent year
of club events came to a close at the Tournament House celebrating our Person
of the Year, Mark Murphy, and Member of the Year, Jim Jacobs. Jim was honored
for his substantial contributions and value to the Big Ten Club, and we even
heard a little about the amazing Packers room at his house. Mr. Murphy shared
some funny stories, some of the lessons he has learned about leadership, and
some of the issues he is currently tackling as President & CEO of the Green
president Marc Goldsmith revived the classic club tradition of giving past
presidents their blue jacket, giving past presidents Steven Green and Joan
McLane their jackets. Marc then graciously accepted his own blue jacket. The
night ended with another tradition when some amazing Packers, Northwestern, and
Redskins gear was auctioned off for the LA Northwestern Alumni Association
Scholarship Fund. We all look forward to what next year will bring
and welcome our new club president Kelly Reynolds.
UPCOMING CLUB EVENTS
Big Ten Club Community Service
LA Regional Food Bank
Angeles Regional Food Bank, 1734 East 41st Street, Los Angeles, CA
April 20th, 8:45am – 12 Noon
annual service project this year will be bigger and better than ever as it will
be co-sponsored by the Michigan State, Northwestern and Wisconsin alumni clubs.
So come on out and bring your friends, whether or not they have a Big Ten
connection. All are welcome. As we’ve done in past years, we’ll help to sort,
clean and repackage donated food items for distribution to other charitable
agencies that serve needy clients throughout the Greater Los Angeles area.
Then, when we’re done
around 12 Noon, as is our custom, we’ll head out to an optional, no host
luncheon at a Mexican restaurant that’s close-by. The luncheon is always lots
of fun and a great way to continue the conversations you’ll have started that
morning with your fellow volunteers. If interested in lunch (no obligation),
please indicate your plans on the registration form.
This had turned into a
wonderful tradition for the club – just ask anyone who’s volunteered in the
past – and we look forward to having you join us. It makes for a rewarding
morning, it’s free and you’ll receive good karma for another year.
And if you might like
to support the good work of the Foodbank with a financial gift, you can do so
by making an online donation at http://www.lafoodbank.org/
Please note: the
minimum age to volunteer is 14, no exceptions.
Still not sure you want
to join us? Then think about these cool reasons:
positive difference for our Los Angeles community.
horrible, far from it, some even claim it’s fun (and it is!).
good looking and smart Big Ten alumni
the (very) good name of the Big Ten Club of Southern California.
