On August 15, 2014, PENPEX had a long-time volunteer leave us after years of poor health. Henry Washauer, past PPX Chair and SSC President passed away. His memorial service will be held on Sept. 7 at 4 pm at his synagogue, Congregation Beth Jacob, 1550 Alameda de las Pulga, Redwood City, CA 94061.
PENPEX passed new by-laws and once formal Directors are elected will be working to file for 501c3 status. PENPEX has been a social non-profit for 40 year and is looking forward to continuing putting on a great local show.
