Executive Retreat

Jon facilitiated an Autodesk CEO staff executive retreat at Las Alcobas in St. Helena in the Napa Valley. Jon's room at the resort looked out on the vineyards - which were undamaged from the fires a few months prior. As part of the retreat we had dinner at Two Birds One Stone, a very nice restaurant at the Freemark Abby winery. Meanwhile, at home, Care dealt with the ever energetic huskies - Buggi and Lyra.

MCOSD Heartwood Award

In mid-January, Marin County Parks and Open Space District held their annual volunteer recognition picnic at McNear Beach. It is usually held in September or October but was delayed this year because of the North Bay fires. Jon was awared the Heartwood award for his service as patrol volunteer. He got a certificate in October, and the actual award, constructed from old fenceposts found in the Deer Island Open Space preserve.
