Vice President Susan Day started our virtual meeting by ringing the bell and then led members in the Pledge of Allegiance.
Karina Sousa offered words of inspiration from Mother Teresa.
The members were impressed to watch the Navy Band perform "Stars and Stripes Forever" at their individual homes over Zoom.
Susan welcomed Alynne De Vilmorin, President of the Bonita Club to our meeting.
We enjoyed a fascinating presentation about the complexity of transportation in San Diego County from Phil Trom of SANDAG. Club members had many questions, and Phil sent a follow-up email with this link to answer some of them.
Fines and Bill's Bucks were pledged from:
Karina Sousa - who shared a story about a Red Shoe donor who went to high school with Chuck Day and was also grateful to spend time with Tom and Monica at the recent Happy Hour
Carl Nettleton - whose daughter-in-law graduated from Stanford
Doug Frost - who is spending quality time in quarantine with his daughter in Tulsa
Alynne De Vilmorin - was grateful to join our Club meeting
Chuck Day - who is thankful for the Club's participation in Red Shoe Day and apologetic that he did not meet with his mentee new member Kevin Currier
Kevin Currier - who is new to San Diego and has learned to curse traffic but appreciated the complexity of the issue better after Phil Trom's presentation
Susan closed the meeting with a recap of past events and preview of upcoming.
