We're thrilled to share some exciting news from the San Francisco Go Club! Our journey towards securing Legacy Business status has reached a significant milestone as the Historic Preservation Commission has unanimously recommended our application. This recognition is a testament to the club's enduring cultural significance and its role as a cherished institution within our community.
What is Legacy Business status, you ask? It's a prestigious designation that honors longstanding businesses in San Francisco, recognizing their historical, cultural, and community contributions. The San Francisco Go Club's rich history and unwavering dedication to promoting the captivating game of Go make us a prime candidate for this distinguished honor.
As we embark on the final step of this remarkable journey, we invite you to mark your calendars for a pivotal moment in our legacy. The Small Business Commission hearing is scheduled for Monday, August 28 at 4:30 p.m. The meeting will likely take place both at City Hall Room 400 and online. During this crucial gathering, the Small Business Commission (SBC) will make the ultimate decision regarding our inclusion in the esteemed Legacy Business Registry.
During the hearing, the Legacy Business Program staff will present a comprehensive overview of our application in a 5-10 minute presentation. This will provide a deeper insight into the San Francisco Go Club's profound impact on our community and the cultural importance of Go. Furthermore, the event will provide an opportunity for public comment. Each speaker will have 1-3 minutes (usually 3) to share their thoughts on our application, emphasizing the club's role in shaping the cultural tapestry of San Francisco.
This is a momentous occasion for us, and your support matters now more than ever. We encourage all of our members, friends, and Go enthusiasts to participate in the meeting either in person or virtually. Your presence and your words can help reinforce the significance of the San Francisco Go Club in the fabric of our city.
As we await this crucial decision, let's come together as a community to celebrate how far we've come and to anticipate an even brighter future for the San Francisco Go Club. We sincerely thank you for your continued support and look forward to sharing the outcome of this momentous event with you.
Stay tuned for further updates, and mark your calendars for August 28 at 4:30 p.m. Let's make history together!
