Good to See:
Ray Ridlon, Don Anthony, Ed Waymire,
.Sec Paul says new club directories are available for the asking at meetings.
.Our club donation of $2500 to the San Diego Council on Literacy helped them purchase 3900 children’s books and lucky for them they only had to pay the postage for delivery of the books.
.If you need a name badge either new or additional please see Sec Paul, an order will be placed soon.
.PDG Len spoke of our own International LEO of the Year Vanessa Nunez and how proud we are. The club will have a ‘Hoopla’ event to honor her when she is back from her term break from USC.
