PACRA Annual Meeting 2014

The PACRA Board of Directors made a last minute decision to cancel the Annual Meeting scheduled for Thursday, May 15. The unfortunate cancellation was do to wildfires in the San Marcos area. On the day of the scheduled meeting the Coco fire was burning very close to Cal State San Marcos near Hwy. 78 and The Old Spaghetti Factory where the meeting was to be held. Exits from the freeway were closed to all but firefighting equipment and citizens were advised to stay clear of the area.

The PACRA Officers made an early morning decision to cancel the meeting and notify all members who had made reservations by telephone. The Board regrets the inconvenience it may have caused to members planning to attend.
