This chapter of the 100 Black Men of America, Inc., when approved, will be called:
Nor Cal Central Valley 100 Black Men of America, Inc. (NCCV 100)
It will cover the counties of:
San Joaquin (Stockton, Tracy, Manteca, etc.)
Stanislaus (Modesto, Ceres, Patterson, etc.)
Merced (Atwater, Merced, Los Banos, etc.)
North Valley (Redding, Chico, Oroville, etc.)
We are doing this the right way by also again having the event at a black establishment (Delroy's). We are asking the men
(and their guests) to purchase their meals at Delroy's on Saturday (as a way of also saying thank you to him).
This will be a working brunch meeting (9 - noon).
We are expecting 25-30 men at this event, so please RSVP (firstname.lastname@example.org), so that we can do an accurate head count for this fifth historic gathering. As you know, 100 Black Men, Inc. is one of the most respected black organizations in the country and having a chapter in the Central Valley area (besides Sacramento) would be tremendous. Please spread the word and bring a friend or two.
We must have a minimum of 25 men in attendance or committed to move forward
