Point Loma Rotary Club
 
Our speaker this Friday will be Eden Tillotson, a remarkably accomplished young person who will speak to us about one of the new Frontiers in Scouting – Venturing, a high adventure program for Girls AND Boys aged 14-20.  She is a member of the Point Loma Venturing Crew 500.
   
Chief Rodney Scott, along with several of his outstanding staff, visited our Dec. 1st meeting.  Chief Scott provided a comprehensive summary of current efforts to restrict unauthorized access to US territory by individuals hoping to provide illegal manpower and illegal substances (read: drugs) through a challenging and ever-changing tactics meant to evade detection.  He presented a video which showed how much progress has been made over the years (remember hordes of people running up the Interstate 5 at the border?  I do!).  We thank Chief Scott for his time and insights.
Our speaker this Friday will be Fari Moini, CEO of Moini International Consulting, and a true inspiration.  A member of La Jolla Golden Triangle Rotary Club and a former Nurse, she was born in Iran and has helped establish schools for girls and boys in war torn Afghanistan.  Come hear the wonderful story of how she came to change the world!
Point Loma Rotary Club held our 5th Annual Jim Krause Memorial "Ride The Point" charity bike event for pancreatic cancer research on Veteran's Day, Nov. 11th.  We had over 520 riders on all three routes, and the weather was fantastic!  Thanks as always go to Rich Stakelum, Gale Krause for her inspiration, and the rest of the RTP Committee for their hard work.  Click on the title of this story for more pictures.
On November 3rd, we were pleased to welcome the four LEAD Students from Warren Walker and Correia Middle Schools.  The students, from left, are Jackie Inzunza (Correia), Mia Pennell (WW), Gavin Foster (Correia), and Liam Haskell (WW).  They provided a summary of their weekend at Leadership, Ethics, Aspiration, and Determination (LEAD) at Camp Cuyamaca, and what lessons they learned and how they will apply those lessons in the future.  We want to thank their parents, all of whom were in attendance, along with the school staffs: Ray Volker and Suzanne Pettigrew (Warren Walker) and John Snedden (Correia).
Phil Pressek, former Intelligence Specialist, discussed the Hexagon Spy Satellite, going into detail on the advanced capabilities and photo clarity that the satellite provided that enable cold warriors to effectively neutralize many of the threats of the Cold War.  We thank Phil for his time and expertise.
It was another successful Oktoberfest at the Osbornes house in Loma Portal on September 29th.  Guests would have been forgiven for believing that they were actually in Munich, given the festive atmosphere, lederhosen, and BEER! (done responsibly).  And what's a PLRC Oktoberfest without Scarlett Nunes and Dick Thorn doing the Chicken Dance?  Thanks as always to Shannon and her team of committed volunteers for these great annual tradition!
