Events - 2016


On December 14th we held our special holiday luncheon at the Olive Garden Restaurant at Stonestown Galleria.  The event was well attended, the food was good and we all enjoyed the company of other Federal workers and retirees. Everyone brought gifts to donate to the SF Fire Department's "Toys for Tots" drive and two SFFD employees were there to receive them. They talked to us briefly about the work they do, and were very greatful for our donations.
