We have a very special guest this week: singer and songwriter Jerry Burgan will be joining us this Friday!   Jerry was a member of We Five (anyone under 60 years old may not remember this group).  Do not miss out on this opportunity to listen to Jerry's uncanny storytelling live at the San Diego Yacht Club.  Also, take this rare occasion to review your Rolodex and reach out to any potential Rotarians that have expressed interest in community service.
 
Debra Gookin, the primary force behind the project, met with Susan Stone and Jeff Mather from the Savusavu Fiji Rotary Club this week.  She met with them in Port Townsend, WA, and gave them "Ride The Point" hats which they appreciated.  Debra, Suan, and Jeff also discussed the next Rotary Foundation Grant proposal and talked about plans for deployment of the 300 Safe Water Stations that are arriving in Fiji this week.   They plan to put them in the first village on August 5 and roll them out over the next few months.  Great news, Debra!
Ron MacDonald, author of "Arlington Anthology: Field Of Honor, " was our speaker on July 13th.  Ron is a native Californian, accomplished and published photographer, who's love of history drove him to tell the untold stories of those who reside at Arlington National Cemetery.   He related multiple historical examples of soldiers, civilians, and notable historical figures interned at the cemetery and alo autographed book for member.  We thank Ron for his time and insights.
 
Prez Alex also took the opportunity to present Past President Frank with his 2017-21018 banner.
 
 
Fara Khaleeli from Tender Loving Canines Assistance Dogs (TLCAD) gave us a great program outlining the wonderful work TLCAD does providing the gift of independence to wounded warriors and individuals with autism.  Fara is pictured, left, with PLRC member Karin and with TLCAD supporter Michelle and autism support dog Star.  Michelle's story of the impact Star has had on her son was inspiring and we thank Fara for her time, insights, and wonderful organization.
Community Programs Director Kira also welcomed Bob Davis from Rady's Bernardy Center for Medically Frail children.  Bob is pictured with Flip Heinz, who along with his wife Jet have been active volunteers at the center for many years.
 
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.
