Past President Bill started off the meeting in Vicky's well-deserved absence as she vacations in Hawaii. He proudly displayed Herb's golden gavel lent to him, along with 1 of the 25 gavels he bought when  president after his was stolen at his first meeting (he says he didn't know our tradition)
Happy Birthday to Molly who gave $21 for her birthday on the 21st (and still looks 21) and $9 for the great news that her dad is able to put off heart surgery as his numbers look good
A Salt & Straw gift certificate went to Lew in our "We Are Baack" drawing - a two-week winner (better buy a lottery ticket!)
Phil deserves an award for the outstanding job he is doing with half his regular staff!! He is looking forward to today & race season as the crowd of happy drinkers are less demanding

Paul, as Foundation Chair, was happy to present next level Paul Harris Awards to Herb, PH+3, Steve, PH+6, and Lew, PH+2
The LobsterFest Committee is hard at work: Andy reminded us that personal relationships are the most successful to bring in sponsors; Bill & George are working on getting two tables for the military; and Herb asked for help with auction items. Charles reminded us that the purpose of LobsterFest is to raise funds to make a difference in someone's life!! Please join the LobsterFest Committee this Thursday, 7/22 at 5:00 at the Suttons
Mami will be at the meeting next week before leaving for San Francisco, so come to say goodby and wish her well
Our speaker, Karen Jongeward, told us about the wonderful volunteer program Crisis Intervention, that the San Diego Police Department began in 1987 to help individuals in the community during times of crisis. They provide immediate short-term emotional and logistical support to victims, witnesses, and other effected individuals who have experienced traumatic or potentially traumatic incidents. We are proud that our new member Trish, volunteers with them. For more information contact Officer Denise Mills at or by phone at 619-733-9352.
