“Welcome Aboard” to Pete Swain, our newest member! Pete is a longtime yachtsman, now retired from his construction business and is looking forward to participating in our club’s activities.
We were treated to a repeat visit by Captain Brien Dickson, USN, the Commanding Officer of Naval Base Point Loma. He updated us on his responsibilities, his vision and his team’s accomplishments since his previous engagement with us over a year ago. What many of us don’t realize is the base commander’s job encompasses not only the Submarine Base (as it was formerly known), but 3 campuses, covering almost 2000 acres, with 60 tennant commands, and over 17,000 employees (only a third of which are active duty military and reservists). His “look ahead” includes better use of the Old Town campus as a future transportation hub and multi-use urban center, including innovative solutions to local transportation challenges. We wish him continued success in his stated vision of communicating with our community in positively impacting San Diego. Thank you, Captain Dickson!
Now that our 2019-2020 budget has been approved, our Youth Work and Special Projects Committee is hard at work to spend our funds on supporting Peninsula youth under the leadership of its Chair, Randy Rolfe.
