We've had a change in schedule and we are now meeting at the San Diego Yacht Club next Friday, April 28.  The Talmadge Gateway Project has been moved to May 12th.

Our speaker will be Deb Thomas from World Vision, an international partnership whose mission is working with the poor and oppressed to promote human transformation by providing vital services and humanitarian support.

 
Saturday, April 29 is the global Rotarians at Work Day.  It happens the last Saturday in April each year, and was started in 2006 as a joint effort between two Rotary Districts (one in the United States and one in Mexico).   Since then, each year Clubs around the world identify a hands-on project that all members can participate in to help their local community.  Point Loma Rotary Club's project will be held at Famosa Slough Park.  Members interested in more details and in signing up contact President Jim or Leon Scales.
 
 
 
Pictured is last Friday's speaker, former Major League Baseball player Matt Nokes (with his brother Mark in the background) in his NY Yankees jersey!  Matt gave a great presentation and answered some very interesting and humorous questions on what it was like to be a professional ballplayer (and have a locker next to Cal Ripken, Jr!).  We really appreciate Matt taking the time to come and share his stories with us (and to Mark for helping to arrange it).  Also, Gary Stephany and Dick Thorn are shown as DIck presents Gary with his latest TRF pin.

Point Loma Rotary's Debra Gookin and Alon Banks, Executive Director of the Give Clean Water non-profit, provided an overview of Give Clean Water's mission and current campaigns to bring safe clean water to the world, including an update on our club Fiji Home Clean Water Project.  Alon and Prez Jim are shown signing the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) that formalizes the collaboration between our two organizations to significantly increase Rotary's effectiveness in Savusavu, Fiji.  Everyone shown is also resplendent in their floral shirts, all of which are from the island nation.
 

    
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.
 
     
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.
