Amanda Wirtz introduced Doreen Tate, chief nurse and co-founder of Mercy Care Uganda, Medical Ministry, whose mission and vision is to give affordable and easy accessible healthcare to the people in villages outside Masaka, Uganda. Rotary of Carlsbad has provided funds to support these efforts.
Our speaker for the evening was Dr. Neville Alleyne, a gifted surgeon, speaker and author; he has inspired patients and colleagues alike with his in-depth interest in spine-related subjects. He specializes in orthopedics and orthopedic surgery, diagnosing neck and back problems and providing medical and surgical remedies. 
Dr. Alleyne is currently a consultant for several spine companies. In addition to his lectures and publications, he is also responsible for a number of patients at Scripps Memorial Hospital Encinitas and Tri-City Medical Center.
Glen Van Peski, Director of Community and Economic Development at the City Of Carlsbad was our guest speaker. He oversees the Planning, Engineering, Building, Development Services, Housing and Neighborhood Services, Code Compliance and Economic Development divisions.   Glen lives in Carlsbad with his wife Francie, and they have 2 grown sons.
The evening’s speaker was Art Barter, Owner & CEO of Datron World Communications, and founder of Servant Leadership Institute.
Art Barter holds two bachelor’s degrees in business and finance.  Prior to joining Datron in 1999, he spent eight years working with the Disney Corporation and over 25 years in manufacturing companies. 
In 2004, Art’s world changed dramatically. As vice president of finance within Datron, Art was given an opportunity to purchase the company from the Titan Group.  With little money and a big vision, a miracle happened that allowed Art and Lori Barter to become owners of a $10 million communications company.
Marilyn Sanderson, Rotary District Governor of District 5340 for 2016-17 was our special guest.
Marilyn grew up in Guthrie, Oklahoma. She has an MS in Education from Wichita State University and has been a teacher-union negotiator and organizer in Oklahoma and California. She retired from the California Teachers Association in 2004 and is now an active Realtor in San Diego.
As of June 2016, there were only 16 cases of wild poliovirus in the world.  We are very close to eradicating this disease!
