This Friday, Point Loma Rotary Club is heading out to the San Diego County Office of Emergency Services (OES). We will have a tour of the facility, be a part of a preparedness and response presentation, and have a lunch-in-learn in the Emergency Operations Center (EOC).  Our host is Cory Osth, Emergency Services Coordinator, County of San Diego Office of Emergency Services.
 
Our next regularly scheduled meeting with be on June 29th at the San Diego Yacht Club.
On June 8th we were pleased to have John Bolthouse, from the Friends of Balboa Park, who discussed the park, what is going on to help preserve and expand this national jewel, and had a wonderful presentation showing many of the buildings and exhibits  in the park.  We thank John for his time and expertise.
 
We also welcomed Principal Hans Becker from Point Loma High School.  Principal Becker, shown here with Dave and Kerry De Rosier, accepting our donation for the PLHS Writing Center, a special program that helps high school students improve their writing skills.
 
It was another great meeting on June 1st.  Our speaker was Susan Taylor, Executive Director, External Communications, for Scripps Health.  Susan's presentation, titled "Gadgets, Gizmos, and Good Health," offered a look inot the new and exciting ways that technological advances are adding to health care alternatives and improving patient care.  We thank Susan for her time and insights.
 
We also had the pleasure of inducting new member Mary Zarlin.  Mary works in Real Estate and brings lots of enthusiasm to the club.  She is pictured here with Prez Frank, Club Service Director Gus and her sponsor Kay, and with Gus receiving her Red Badge.  Welcome, Mary!
 
Last but not least, we had the opportunity to present our donation to the Peninsula Little League.  Pictured are PLL Rep Tim Cleator and Prez Frank.
Point Loma Rotary Club members once again participated in Rotarians at Work Day, April 28th, with another visit to Famosa Slough.  A true natural resource within our community, the Friends of Famosa Slough helped us organzie clearing brush and rehabilitating off-trail areas and we constructed a bench overlooking the slough for visitors.  Thanks to Jim Peugh from the Friends and Leon Scales for helping pull this together. 
Our annual visit to present Moore's Cancer Center with our largest (figuratively and literally) check was another great success.  Congratulations to Rich Stakelum and the RTP Committee for spearheading the 2017 bicycle ride for pancreatic cancer.  This year's donation of $30,000 pushed our overall donation total over the $100,000 threshold.  Dr. Tony Reid, Dr. Andy Lowy, and Dr. Mike Bouvet from the Pancreatic Oncology Unit described to club members the uses they've been able to make our our specific donations and the exciting avenues for future solutions to curing this insidious disease.  Click on the title above to see more pictures.
 
We're already rolling on the 2018 Ride The Point...check with RIch Stakelum how you can get involved.
Debra Gookin has recently organized several working parties to cut and paint the wood for the Fiji Water Project stands.  Pictured are some of our members who lent a hand, including several students from Point Loma Interact Club.  We thank Debra and John Losee for coordinating these important efforts.
