I worked with a number of Canadian nurses who had tenured at a similar facility in Canada. This compelled me to volunteer at Shriners Hospital in Honolulu. It's very difficult to relate the resulting emotions. I was born and raised in San Leandro; this is one of hopefully many steps in worldwide recognition of the heart of San Leandro.

Don't tell me that they couldn't find a local restaurant or catering company? Aren't you trying to promote San Leandro?
