Dear MPINCC Family,

We all woke up the morning of October 9 with the terrible news of the fires in the North Bay. We have been in contact with our North Bay members in the area of these fires to offer any assistance that is needed during this time.

It is with sadness that we heard about the Hilton Sonoma Wine Country, Fountaingrove Inn as well as countless wineries and restaurants that have burned down in addition to many homes. Our thoughts are with all of the victims and those on the front lines fighting to contain these fires.

If you hear of any member of our hospitality community in need, please do reach out to us. We are all here to help and lend a hand.

Please join us in keeping our North Bay friends and their families in our thoughts during this time.

Warm regards,

Lucy Giovando Watts, CMP, CMM
MPINCC President 2017-2018
