Our speaker this Friday will be Lorie Zapf, Councilmember from City Council District Two.  Lorie will discuss the current issues of importance to citizens within her district, which includes Point Loma.
We had the pleasure of hosting Fred Krakowiak, a former investment banker who left that world many years ago to become a Nature & wildlife artist & African safari expert.  Fred showed off samples of his artwork and provided copies of several of his books, including "Tracking Your inner Maverick."  We thank Fred for his wonderful stories, pictures, and insight.
 
We also had the opportunity to do some membership updates.  First, we welcomed Steve Thorn, Dick Thorn's better looking brother, as a new member.  We also had the chance to recognize Rob Ceno on getting his Blue Badge.  Pictured, along with Membership Chair Gus and Prez Alex, are  the two Thorn Brothers, Dick and Steve, then Rob Ceno, along with Prez Alex, accepting his Blue Badge.  We congratulate Steve and Rob.
Michael Semanchik, Managing Attorney at the California Innocence Project (CIP), was our program speaker on Oct. 5th.  As part of his work, Michael has been involved in many cases surrounding the exoneration of previously-convicted prisoners, and he gave us a very moving presentation on how the CIP is positively impacting citizens wrongfully convicted of crimes and discussed the benefits to society to ensure that our justice system is held accountable for ensuring the innocent are exonerated.  We thank him for his time and insights.
We are gearing up (ha ha) for our 2018 Ride the Point to be held on November 10th,  and cordially invite … and really hope …  that you will ride with us this year. Signing up is easy at  http://ridethepoint.org

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.
