From the Board:

Our new Board held their 2017 planning meeting in February. We were hosted by the city of Willits in the heart of Mendocino County.

Co-President Molly Blaisdell presided over the group, which included new members and some long-time veterans. Co-President Tom Wilmer will be handling administrative duties. MJ Pramik and Lee Daley were confirmed as co-Vice Presidents, and new member John Sundsmo was drafted as Secretary and accepted. Encouraging and recruiting new members has been defined as one of BATW’s top priorities for the year.

Although John Sundsmo was not present at the Board meeting, he made good use of his time by exploring all that Willits has to offer visitors. Travel Examiner.com published his travel article, Willits Whistlestop Weekend, on March 12.
