George started us off with a Patriotic "Proud to be an American" video in honor of Memorial Day
Happy Birthday to Charlotte on her birthday today
 Happy dollars came from Venky for a wonderful trip to India to visit family, Art for a great trip with Ildiko to Nova Scotia to see rock formations and the highest tide swings; George for son Rick visiting us today, Bill for his and Suzanne's fabulous trip to Morocco, Susan for the Hilton parking meter machine; Ken for his and Bebe's 18th Anniversary on the 22nd
Bill reminded us of Stand Down which will be July 29-31, where we will again hand out water.  Bring used clothes next Friday for needy Veterans which Bill will deliver
Bring shoes for  Nova Ukraine that  Kevin will collect, which are bought and donated to needy countries with the proceeds given to help Ukraine (And Viewpoint will give a 6-pack of its special brew to the first 6 donors)

We need a Program Director (to be divided  by 3 people for 3 months starting in October), and help with zoom so we can continue with hybrid meetings 
In lieu of a speaker, Trish talked about the program 
which allows participants to experience the San Dieguito River Valley, to follow its path from mountain to sea, to encounter plant, animal and human inhabitants, and to connect to the River Valley with heart and mind
