The 2018 MCBA Board & Officers Installation Gala & Scholarship Fundraiser, held on January 20 at the Marin Country Club in Novato, provided a memorable and entertaining evening to all in attendance. Past President Dorothy Chou Proudfoot passed the gavel to incoming President Tom Brown, and attendees got to know the new President a little better with Andy Perez’s warm introduction.

Dresow, Treasurer Caroline Joachim, Secretary Susan Feder, Past President Dorothy Chou Proudfoot, and Five Year Past President, Jessica Karner; and the 2018 Directors, Marie A. Barnes, Toussaint S.
