Board Meetings with a Twist

Board Meetings with a Twist

I wandered into The Boardroom on a discovery mission. There’s been a sign in the window for months on the corner of 16th and J St. in downtown Modesto and looked to be start and stop construction. My curiosity finally got to me and it was time to see what exactly was going on. The door […]
