John is a great person to work with in the community. He serves as an advisor for the Millbrae Leo's Club since it first started and helped the club expand from 20 members to over 175 members within the 2 years and growing. I'm proud that I am able to work with John during while I served on the board for the leo's club. He brought up many great ideas to our club and always there to help out. You deserve this! Congrats John!
