Peter Phillips Leaving the ESU Board

I am both sad and happy to write this. Peter has found receptions site venues for the last three years. He has been diligent in advising Alison and Steve with as much notice as he had available where to bring food and drink each month. As a board member he will be sorely missed. As a friend, to next to and laugh with, I am devastated!

However, I am happy for him and his future activities. In addition to continuing in real estate, he is also beginning to plan some fun trips. Peter writes:

In April I am joined by a dozen family and friends joining to visit two of my favorite Jamaican properties I used to oversee so long ago. Few night at Strawberry Hill high up in the blue coffee country above Kingston. Then, venturing off to the famed ocean side of James Bond creator Ian Fleming's Golden Eye. Both these properties are beyond extraordinary having been owned and carefully orchestrated by my old boss, Chris Blackwell, of Bob Marley and Island Music fame. 

Take a moment to google both these properties and you will get a glimpse of their breathtaking locations and unsurpassed uniqueness. There is always a room for more to join. Just let me know!!

May finds me joining my dear friends from Bend, Oregon off to Spain Portugal and Morocco. There are still spots available. Wish to consider?
