Good to See: EVERYONE



Muchas Gracias to pres. Chris and the lovely Cathy for hosting our steak fry at their beautiful home in Alpine.  And more thank you’s to the Master BBQ-ers PP Mark C, PP Gary Sims and whomever else was tossing the meat around on the grills.  Great job and special thanks to Chairs 2nd Veep Gary Zink and Henry Coleman.. Just a super day with special friends in a beautiful venue!

.Sec Paul reported that our club served over 416,000 people and performed 629 activities.  Also on Sat, Aug 10th the Salvation Army is holding their Back to School event at the El Cajon JC Penneys.  If you are interested in volunteering please call Laura Ingram at 619-301-7063.

.Dolores pointed out the eyeglass collection box, and what you may find inside.  One that she put out at the El Cajon Library had a donated cell phone, a $1 bill and about 15 pair of used eyeglasses.

.Dick Nasif  says our bench installation and ceremony will be held on Monday, July 29th at the Promenade at 1PM.  Come to the Lodge for lunch first and wear your vests as we are hoping for publicity.


.Treas Paul said we ended the year nearly even.  We are prepared to issue a check for $4,000 to the Winchester Widows for their great help in making our Gunsmoke casino night such a success.  The check will be presented at a meeting in the future.  Also we are changing from Union Bank to ‘Felina’s bank’, CA Bank and Trust.


PP Bob M and PDG Len asked for a vote to elect Carl Ruiz as our new 3rd Veep after the resignation from that office by Lion Rod Streeper.  Congrats to PP Carl on his new position and we hope to see Lion Rod at as many meetings as he can muster.
