Rotary at Work Day 2016
 
Club Presentations
 
This evening's program was to celebrate Julie Norby's year as president and the induction of Frank Silva as the new president of the club.  It was a fun night of laughs and celebration.
 
 
 
Eileen Martinez, Chief of Interpretation and Education for the Cabrillo National Monument in Point Loma in San Diego.  She gave an excellent Powerpoint presentation, supported with pictures and an excellent talk on the Cabrillo National Park and the highpoints for a visitor. This year the National Park Service will celebrate their Centennial. Eileen brings over 25 years of public land service to her current position.
 
 
 
Olivier Brackett is Airport Manager at McClellan-Palomar Airport in Carlsbad. Jessica Turner is an Administrative Analyst and is responsible for Customer Relations. The airport was named McClellan-Palomar for Gerald McClellan, a North County community leader. The history goes back to 1957, when the San Diego County picked the Carlsbad site. The airport opened for daytime operations in 1959, with terminal building and expansion to a 4,700 ft. runway within a couple of years. In 1978 the airport was annexed to the City of Carlsbad.
 
 
 
Dr. Burkholder is a former Special Agent (SA) that worked for the Department of Homeland Security with the United States Secret Service for nine years.  From her small frame and 5’7” stature you would never have thought that this amazing woman once had duties that included protection details for the President, Vice-President and many foreign dignitaries. 
 
 
 
Dr. Alleyne is a physician with Orthopedic Specialists of North County and is associated with Tri City Medical Center and Scripps.  He came to the Tri City area in 1989 and is an orthopedic surgeon that specializes in spinal surgery.  He is one of the most experienced surgeons in the country at using the new robotic guidance technology to assist in spine surgery.
 
 
 
On behalf of the Carlsbad Rotary Foundation, Rotarians Ed Scarpelli and Terry Maher present scholarships to Palomar College students Cynthia Lopez (Psychology) and Ana Munoz Rodriquez (Nursing).  These scholarships are two of the 14 presented annually by the Carlsbad Rotary Foundation.  The primary source of funds for the Carlsbad Rotary Foundation are donations from the members of the Rotary Club of Carlsbad.  These donations represent a dedication to building a vibrant community by contributing to the education of local students in important disciplines.

The program was started off by Joe Ramirez explaining the Rotary Youth Exchange (RYE) program which was started in 1929 as a way for Rotary International to increase its focus on youth.  The purpose is to expose these young people to other cultures, to have them act as an ambassador of their home country and to grow personally.  He reminded us that his Son was an RYE student that we sponsored about 5 years ago to go to Ecuador and that is how Joe became a member of our club.  Our club has sponsored RYE students for years and he wanted to thank the membership for being a host club and to thank those that have served as host families.
 
 
 
Carlsbad Rotary’s own Lisa Basista is the Dean of Academics at Army and Navy Academy. Lisa introduced Cadet Josh Rutledge and Athletic Director Byrd Milic, who joined her to present the evening’s program.
 
 
 
Dr. Paul Sarkaria is a cardiologist who has been working in the tri-city area for 28 years. His presentation was on interventional cardiology and the latest cutting edge interventions that are being done.
 
 
 
Joey Szalkiewicz gave us a great program tonight with his stories about climbing four of the Seven Summits (The Messner version: Everest, Aconcagua, Denali, Kilimanjaro, Elbrus, Puncak Jaya and Vinson) by the tender age of 18.
