A special thank you to our Annual Sponsors for their contribution to the growth of the chapter.

Thank you to our joint meeting sponsors, Monark Premium Appliance and Miele, as well as ASID Peninsula for joining us again for our 2nd Annual Chopped Challenge Joint Chapter Meeting! Now let's send a thank you and high-five to our 4 NARI Chopped Challenge Team Members - Charles Simms (European Rolling Shutters), Joan Slaughterbeck (Slaughterbeck Floors), Melinda Foster (Century Stereo), and Patty Hayos (Signature Kitchen & Bath), who also lead us in a donation drive to give to our neighbors in the North Bay who lost a lot in the wildfires. There was continued praise from members and guests who attended and had a fabulous time. Although NARI lost the challenge this year by a slim margin, we look forward to next year's event that I hear will have more added fun. Stay tuned! Monthly Chapter Meetings are open to all members and prospective members.

Sorry if you were unable to attend, but look below to see what you missed...

Meeting included the 2018 NARISV Board Elections

Co-Event: 2nd Annual ASID vs. NARI Chopped Cooking Challenge

Four chefs from each organization showed off their culinary genius & talents as they face off against one another to prepare a spectacular appetizer and dessert. The catch? Both teams had one round to use all their pre-selected ingredients, however unlikely they might be. The panel of judges critiqued in terms of taste, presentation and creativity. The last team standing took home bragging rights (with prizes)!
