Welcome our New Directors’

On Wednesday, December 16, 2020 the Rubicon Trail Foundation had a quick monthly meeting to vote in some new and old Directors.  It is our pleasure to announce that we added two new faces to the board.  Many people may know them already but we want everyone to know who the board is.

Please help us in welcoming Diane Hawks and Ron Cannon to the board.  We will be showcasing our board members over the next few weeks so stay tuned for more info on these new Director’s.
