I enjoyed it so much and I look forward to seeing you again soon."

"I have had the pleasure to participate in the events organized for the Young Diplomats Club for more than three years now. Every event has been extremely enjoyable, professionaly managed, well taken care of and has counted with personal attention to details and to each one of us as a particular person. This is a great initiative that provides us Diplomats posted in S.F. with a touch of diplomatic life although we've been far away from Washington. I thank Sherri and the whole team for making our life in San Francisco so enjoyable."
Eva Pizano Cejka
Press Attaché
Consulate General of Mexico

"Many thanks - I'm so touched! It has been an absolute pleasure working with you in San Francisco. You made a significant impact on my time in the Bay Area with the YDC. I have enjoyed each event down to the details, and have made close friends and working relationships with young colleagues in the SF Consular Corps which I would likely not otherwise have met. Being part of the YDC has been a highlight of my professional life here and I wish you all the best with continued success!"
