Men’s Club – June 2012

The Niguel Shores Men’s Club meets every 1st and 3rd Tuesday of the month for an 8:00 a.m. breakfast in the ClubHouse and an informational speaker or presentation.

On Tuesday, May 1 we had “Captain” Dave of Dana Point’s Dolphin & Whale Safari. “Captain” Dave provided us with photos and videos of whales and dolphins that inhabit our local waters. His main focus was to raise awareness that nearly 1,000 whales and dolphins are dying every day from fishing gear entanglement.

Tuesday, May 15 Dana Point City Council member, Lisa Bartlett was our guest speaker. Ms. Bartlett reviewed current events in our city and also discussed the various projects that are in the planning stages. Focus was on the fact that Dana Point is one of the few California cities in excellent financial shape.

A major event sponsored by the Men’s Club is the Annual 4th of July Pancake Breakfast. This year it will be on Wednesday, July 4th from 8:00 a.m. until 10:30 a.m. in the ClubHouse. The cost of the breakfast is only $4 per person and the Men’s Club members will be providing the manpower and cooking the wonderful pancakes and grilled sausage, along with fresh fruit, juice and coffee. This event is a great way to get our 4th of July festivities started and gather together with the members of our community. Profits from the Breakfast go to help fund the Men’s Club Scholarship Fund, which awards three scholarships to outstanding students attending Dana Hills High School.

We look forward to seeing you all at the Breakfast and welcome new members to join our meetings on the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays of the month.
