2016 What a Year it Was! [photos]
The calendar was packed for 2016, with events every month for the Bar, the courts, and section activities. CCCBA members were generous this year, raising funds for a memorial service for Judge Richard Arnason, for Food from the Bar with Comedy Night and the Walk-a-thon in the spring, followed by the Bar Fund Benefit in the fall. We said goodbye to Judge Richard Arnason and hello to Judge David Goldstein.
There was a lot of socializing going on too, with the All Sections Mixer in June and regional mixers sprinkled throughout the year. The Family Law section hosted a Summer Soiree, and the Women’s Section hosted its annual Wine Tasting Fundraiser and Awards Dinner. The annual Bench-Bar Softball game was a big hit with judges and attorneys choosing sides and running the bases. ABA President Paulette Brown paid a visit to Contra Costa and CCCBA Executive Director Theresa Hurley shared time with the ED of the State Bar. The Pro Bono Expo landed on Love Your Lawyer Day and the MCLE Spectacular was another big success. We can’t wait for 2017!
