Report From the December 2023 Charter Chapter Holiday Luncheon in Beverly Hills

New Member certificates are awarded to (l to r) Robert Zirgulis, Berenice Wilkinson, Alex Leary, Louis Newman and Christine Geosling.

The Charter Chapter (Los Angeles/Orange County) gathered for its Annual International Holiday Luncheon at the festively-decorated Lawry’s The Prime Rib Restaurant in Beverly Hills, California on Dec. 9, 2023.

A celebratory crowd of 64 (including 15 guests) honored Ed Howard upon achieving his Silver Level (150 destinations) designation while Full Membership certificates were awarded to Alex Leary, Berenice Wilkinson, Louis Newman, Christine Geosling and Robert Zirgulis.

Charter Chapter Coordinator Michael Sholer welcomed guest speaker Jonathan Holburt, a TCC member who took this winter crowd on an exotic sun-splashed tour of French Polynesia, visiting the islands of Moorea, Bora Bora and Tahiti.

Due to the TCC International Conference in the Azores conflicting with our regular quarterly meeting in June, our 2024 gatherings have been re-scheduled for April 13, Aug. 10 and Dec. 14.
