Our speaker this Friday will be retired CAPT Charles "Charlie" MacVean.  CAPT MacVean is a long time Point Loma resident, born and raised in Ridgewood, N.J. He received his naval commission through the NROTC program at Dartmouth College and graduated in 1959. He later earned a Ph.D. in nuclear science and engineering at Cornell University.  He was Commanding Officer of USS SEAWOLF (SSN 575) from 1975 - 1978.
Lisa Record, Development Director at Veterans Village of San Diego, a homeless veterans support facility on Pacific Highway, was our speaker.  Lisa highlighted the great work VVSD is doing with homeless veterans.  We also welcome Dr. Mike Coonz, who helped set up the dental outreach program at VVSD.  Dr. Mike received the $6,000 donation that the club raised through our recent Comedy Night.  Also at the meeting were the Sweethearts of Swing - Janet Hammer, Shelley Smith, and Kim Royster, who entertained us with memorable tunes harkening back to World War II and the swing era.
 
Councilwoman Lorie Zapf, our District Two City Council Representative was our speaker on March 23rd.  Councilmember Zapf has been a visitor at our club multiple times and provided us with a concise and insightful perspective on district issues that affect all of us.  We appreciate her time and perspective.
Our speaker on March 16th was Warren Branges, CDR, USN (ret), Commander of US Submarine Veterans Incorporated, San Diego.  Warren gave us a great discussion on the World War II Submarine Memorials in Liberty Station - their origin and caretaking needs.  As a community service project Point Loma Rotary has committed to assist Warren and the USSVI in maintaining this wonderful memorial to some of our bravest military veterans.  Also pictured are members of the Point Loma Association "Mean Green Team" working on monuments and the landscaping.  As PLRC is a Gold Sponsor of the PLA, this brings our support full circle.  We thank Warren for his information and insight.
Point Loma Rotary Club held our 5th Annual Jim Krause Memorial "Ride The Point" charity bike event for pancreatic cancer research on Veteran's Day, Nov. 11th.  We had over 520 riders on all three routes, and the weather was fantastic!  Thanks as always go to Rich Stakelum, Gale Krause for her inspiration, and the rest of the RTP Committee for their hard work.  Click on the title of this story for more pictures.
