Charter Chapter Updates

An Invitation to the December 2023 Charter Chapter Meeting

Jonathan Holburt, with Bora Bora’s Mt. Otemanu in the background, will present a program on French Polynesia at our Dec. 9 meeting.

Our next quarterly meeting of the TCC Charter Chapter (Los Angeles/Orange County) will be held on Saturday, Dec. 9, when we return to the popular Lawry’s The Prime Rib for our festive Annual International Holiday Luncheon.

Our special presentation will be given by TCC member Jonathan Holburt, who lived 30 years overseas, primarily in East Asia. Jonathan’s program, “French Polynesia: A Perfect Paradise in an Imperfect World,” will feature the islands of Moorea, Bora Bora and Tahiti — destinations which have occupied bucket lists, including Gauguin’s, since the 19th century. A perfect paradise escape for our winter holiday luncheon!
