Club Presentations
Mike Fino, Dean of Mathematics and Sciences at Mira Costa College in Oceanside spoke to us about a new pilot program being offered.  The college will soon begin offering a Bachelor's degree in BioManufacturing.
Leisa Tilley-Grajek, founder and president of K-9 Guardians was our presenter tonight. Leisa is a San Diego native who developed her love for dogs and all animals at a very early age.  Her family has a very long line of military service including her father who served in Vietnam.  It was her love of the military’s service men and women along with her love of dogs that prompted her to start K-9 Guardians. K-9 Guardians is a non-profit 501c (3) located in Fallbrook.  The organization raises and trains German Shepherds to be service dogs for veterans with PTSD and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI).
Police Chief Neil Gallucci,Captain Mickey Williams and Lieutenant Jason Jackowski, joined our meeting as we acknowledged the work that police officers do for our community.  Recently, other cities have had officers killed and injured in the line of duty and we wanted to show our appreciation for their dedication to protecting our city. To help mentor new potential police officers, our club made a donation to the Carlsbad Police Explorers.
Chief Gallucci thanked the group and applauded all members of our club for using our time and life experiences to serve the community.  He also stated that they could not provide the superior level of service that they do without the help of citizens like our club members who help meet the needs that they cannot. 
We wish them safety during their daily job.

Ted Torre Bueno, of Empowered Energy Solutions, was our speaker for the evening.  Mr. Torre Bueno is a member of the San Diego chapter of the US Green Chamber of Commerce and has committed himself to educating the community about energy solutions and sustainability products.  He started his talk be emphasizing his passion for the industry and for informing consumers that there are dubious, predatory and misleading companies in the sustainability industry.  He is on a mission to teach consumers how to become informed and prepared to make decisions about solar panels and other sustainability and alternative energy products.  I tried to comprehend and make sense of what he was teaching us.
