The Rotary Club of Mission Bay helped out at all four concerts performed at Concerts on the Green, at Kate Sessions Park, overlooking the Greater Mission Bay Area.  
The Concerts on the Green raises funds for a number of important community and school events.
Rotary Club of Mission Bay helps with another successful community event, the Annual Crystal Pier Kids Classic Fishing Derby.  More than 250 children participated in derby that provided fun experience for all.  Thank you Captain Ron and Larry!
Once again, the Rotary Club of Mission Bay sets up the Children's Art Center at the annual Concerts on the Green event at Kate Sessions Park in Pacific Beach.
Children line up for creating art and for getting their face painted (thank you Mila), while their families are enjoying the free concerts.
The Honorable Carl DeMaio, past member of the San Diego City Council and candidate for congress (52 Congressional District), addressed members and guests of the Rotary Club of Mission Bay on August 11, 2014.  Carl DeMaio was the first of two candidates running for congress to represent the voters in our district.  He will be followed by Congressman Scott Peters, who will address the club at our next meeting, on August 18.
Carl DeMaio was a member of the Rotary Club of Mission Bay in 2002, and club members remember him complaining about the problems at City Hall and how people were predicting that the City would go bankrupt.  He acted on his concerns and successfully ran for City Council in 2008.  He was on the San Diego City Council from 2008 to 20012.  
During his presentation at the Rotary Club of Mission Bay, Carl talked about his experiences on the City Council and his reform effort, such as pension reform, budgetary reforms, and redevelopment reforms.  He found that the water department received bonuses every year.  He found that retiring personnel received a higher retirement pension during the first year than they received in any salaried year that they worked.  He worked hard to balance the budget and find ways to save money.  He disagreed with the decision to send redevelopment money to Petco Park.
Carl answered a  number of questions related to what he would do in congress, how he would fix congress, border patrol and immigration policy, Hobby Lobby, and health care.

Congressman Scott Peters, representing the 52nd Congressional District, addressed the members and guests at the Rotary Club of Mission Bay.  Scott serves on the Armed Services Committee and the Science, Space, and Technology Committee in the US House of Representatives.  He successfully ran for congress in 2011, when the government shut down because of the budget.  
When Congressman Peters was elected in 2012, he helped pass the first budget to be adopted in four years.  He wants to lead by example and cooperate with other members of congress.  He said he gets along well with the other congressional members from San Diego County, including Republicans.  
Scott stated that because San Diego is leading the nation in solar energy research and development and we need to support this industry to create jobs and expand our local economy.  San Diego has more homeless veterans than any other area in the country, and he has worked to strengthen the Military Stabilization program, which helps veterans transition from active duty.
Several questions were asked about volatile condition around the world, militarization of the local police, immigration, and health care reform.

Rotary Club of Mission Bay met their fundraising goal by grossing more than $4000 at the October 26, 2014, Bocce Tournament, held at Vacation Island, in Mission Bay, allowing $1000 to be donated to Polio Plus, $500 to Wounded Warriors, and the balance of net proceeds to a number of other local community projects. 
Congratulations! Mission Bay Rotary Club member Kevin Beiser, who was recently elected President of the San Diego Unified School Board.  
Kevin was sponsored by club members Suzie Ditmars and Michael Thomason (shown with Kevin and Elizabeth in thumbnail image) and inducted into Rotary in June 2013.  He has been very helpful with establishing our community organization/school partnership with the PB Middle School and working with Suzie Ditmars and Sally Kaufman on the PB Middle School Garden and Peace Pole Project.  
Pacific Beach Elementary Students Receive Dictionary and Thesaurus from Mission Bay Rotary Club.  
Each year, the Mission Bay Rotary Club gives a dictionary and thesaurus to every third grade student in the four elementary schools in Pacific Beach and two schools in Clairemont.
