Happy Birthday to Susheela for her Monday birthday 
Patricia announced a change in venue for our October social on the 13th to Bush Fire in Del Mar instead of the Hilton and Paul reminded us  to focus on Education/teachers which is the classification for the month. The Holiday party will be 12/4. 
We got a wonderful presentation on our local geology and formation of our mountain ranges from Mike Thacker, who  is a Senior Staff R&D Scientist at Thermo Fisher Scientific in Carlsbad. Though his knowledge in geology is self taught, it has served him well as a member of the Board of Trustees for the San Diego Archaelogical Center since 2017
President Susan presented Mike with a speakers certificate showing our support for OEF in El Salvador
