People In The News
As some of you may have read in Jim DeBoom's Daily Pilot column, on Friday, May 29th, some of our outstanding friends and neighbors are being honored at the Daily Pilot Community and Clubs Hall of Fame Luncheon at the American Legion Post in Newport Beach.
THE "MAGNIFICENT SEVEN"
According to DeBoom's column and the invitation provided, the following individuals are being honored: Christina Holiday of the Rotary Club of Newport Beach Sunrise; Richard Freeman of the Exchange Club of Newport Harbor; Carol Van Holt of the Harbor Mesa Lions Club; Mike Scheafer of the Costa Mesa Newport Harbor Lions Club; Fran Ursini of the Costa Mesa Kiwanis Club; Tim Shields of the Rotary Club of Newport Irvine and Jim De Boom himself, of the Rotary Club of Newport Balboa.
HURRY FOR TICKETS!
The event begins at 11:45 a.m. with a reception and noon luncheon. Tickets are available, but time's a wastin' because I didn't post this earlier this week. Here's the link to DeBoom's column with the information.
KUDOS ALL AROUND
Congrats to all who will receive this very appropriate recognition for their contributions to making our communities such wonderful places to live, work and play.
INTERESTING INTERVIEW WITH ALLAN ROEDER
Last week I came across a very interesting interview with Costa Mesa City Manager, Allan Roeder, by writer Debbie L. Sklar in PublicCEO.com. This fascinating interview, in which Roeder addresses many of the current challenges facing our city, may be found HERE. This interview only reinforces my opinion that our city continues to be in good hands and that, with Roeder at the helm, we will find our way out of the current financial turmoil.
Just a little note... the city needs to update Roeder's file photo!
