Dr. Iris Engstrand was our speaker on March 17th. She talked about her recent trip to Spain to research the origins and roots of Juan Cabrillo - he's positively Spanish, not Portuguese. Her presentation was interesting and engaging, and we truly thank Dr. Engstrand for taking the time to visit us.
Also last week week, Flip Heinz presented donation checks to representatives from the San Diego Humane Society and Rady's Childrens Hospital.
Another great Comedy Night event...our thanks to Tony Calabrese and the three other fine comedians: Lisa Gilbert, Rachel McDowell, and Kevin Johnson (although I do worry still about all the voices that Kevin has in his head). We'll be posting the results on attendance and funds raised in the near future.
Chief Shelley Zimmerman, Chief of Police for the City of San Diego, gave an outstanding presentation, outlining her career and how she sees the current environment of policing; she discussed the various propositions that impact law enforcement state wide and relating these initiatives back to our responsibility to vote and let our elected representatives know our positions. Specifically, she discussed Prop 47 (Reducing various crimes from felonies to misdemeanors); Prop 57 (Parole of non-violent criminals to reduce the prison overcrowding); and Prop 64 (Marijuana legalization). We thank the Chief for her time and allowing us to participate in this highly informative discussion.
More images from the event: the excitement of the riders at the start, some of the Enthusiast Riders along the route, and Family Riders at the rest area along Harbor Dr. Congratulations to the RTP Committee and look for more pictures and updates to the fundraising efforts in the near future.
