YMCA hosting 13th annual Fellowship Breakfast
This year's program will include inspirational speakers and artistic expressions related to the theme, "From Dreams To Action." The keynote speaker will be Pleasanton Police Chief Dave Spiller.
As part of the annual event, the Tri-Valley YMCA will be honoring three community members with the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Legacy Award: Lynette Butsuda, a teacher at Frederiksen Elementary School in Dublin; Mark Duncanson, senior recreation program specialist with the city of Pleasanton; and Joan Seppala, publisher of The Independent.
The breakfast will be held from 7:30-9:30 a.m. at the Hilton Pleasanton at the Club. Cost is $40. Contact Kelly O'Lague Dulka at 263-4444.
The Tri-Valley YMCA exists to strengthen the community, nurturing the potential of children, helping people to understand and improve their health, and providing opportunities to give back and support neighbors. Proceeds from the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Fellowship Breakfast will directly benefit youth leadership programs.
The breakfast is held on the Monday following the actual Martin Luther King Jr. Birthday Celebration so that those who are away for holiday can join in the observance.
