The annual Rotarians at Work Day is Saturday, April 27th.  Rotarians from around the globe dedicate this day to community improvement.  Point Loma Rotarians will working at Cabrillo National Monument to restore the Tran-Deck Overlook on the monument to the scenic ocean view turnout of years past. Our new RAW shirts have arrived!  Kudos to Karin and Kay for the redesign and printing of our new shirts.
 
On the 12th we had the pleasure of welcoming back San Diego Chief of Police Dave Nisleit.  Chief Nisleit was a guest of the club in the past and was promoted to the City of San Diego’s 35th Chief of Police on March 2, 2018, and oversees the eighth largest police department in the nation.  He is a native San Diegan and grew up in the Rolando Community.  His father was a police officer and now his son has joined the force.
Chief Nisleit touched on the crime rate (low and decreasing), homelessness (a problem but SDPD focus is compassion not incarceration), the working relationship with federal agencies (SDPD does not ask immigration status but will turn criminals over to ICE), and SDPD staffing (recent pay raises have stopped personnel leaving in numbers and closed some of the gap with new hires but there still plenty of good jobs available).  Overall a great program and we thank Chief Nisleit for his time and valuable insights.
On April 5th we welcomed Mariah Gillespie, a member of the Coronado Rotary Club and the Arts Education and Musical Arts Commissioner for the City of Coronado.  Mariah provided our club with an outstanding and relevant set of ideas regarding the need for Rotary Clubs to reach out to "millenials," young professionals in the 30-39 year range, who represent the largest population demographic are are key to the future heath of Rotary throughout the world.  She is pictured with Prez Alex.  We thank Mariah for her time and valuable insights.
We also inducted our newest member Patrick Seraphin, a member of the San Diego Padres organization, and Ted Walker, Treasurer for the Point Loma Association, who accepted our yearly donation.  Pictured, from left, are Membership Director Gus, Patrick and Prez Alex; and Prez Alex and Ted.
 
Congratulations to Rich Stakelum and his whole team for another successful event on Nov. 10th.  This year appears to mark another record in our fundraising efforts to support Moore's Cancer Center Pancreatic Oncology unit and honor our good friend Jim Krause.  Stay tuned for updates to actual total funds raised.
 
Check out this great video of the Veterans Village Fishing Trip:
 
 
 
 
On Aug. 26th, Rotary Club of Point Loma and Veterans Village of San Diego hosted the First Annual Veteran's Fishing Day.  The event included a free day of fishing for about 50 veterans on one of San Diego's premier fishing boat, the Daily Double.  The boat departed from the Point Loma Sportfishing pier at 9:00 AM and returned around 6:00 PM.  Most anglers were successful there were smiles from all the participants upon returning to the pier.  Special thanks to Alan Brown and Carter Shuffler for all their hard work in putting together this event.  Click on the title above to see additional pictures.
