Women’s Club Luncheon: October 13, 2016 at 12:00 at the Clubhouse

More than 60 Women’s Club members and guests gathered in September to enjoy fun and friendship at their first luncheon meeting of the year. President Lydia Reese welcomed new members, congratulated September birthdays, conducted club business, and introduced a special presentation by Lieutenant Eric Ledesma of the Los Angeles Port Police.
Using slides and videos, Lieutenant Ledesma discussed Multi-Agency Operations and Homeland Security along our coast and at the busy ports of Los Angeles
and Long Beach, through which 45% of the nation’s commerce passes every year. He described the numerous layers of security in place through the Joint Security Command and Control Center at the ports, including the Port Police, Harbor Patrol, Police Dive Team, Customs and Border Control, U.S. Coast Guard, FBI, area fire departments, sonar and radar systems, high resolution zoom cameras, and drug or bomb sniffing dogs. In addition, he encouraged coastal residents to be watchful of suspicious boating activity that might signal drugs or human traffic movement along our shores. “See something, say something,” was his recommendation, along with the “iWatch” information booklet he distributed.
The next Women’s Club meeting will be Thursday, October 13, at which Ray Martin will discuss the topic “Medicare 101—the Nuts and Bolts of Medicare, Medicare Advantage, and Medicare Supplement Insurance.” Mr. Martin will offer comparisons of the programs and rates, an analysis of prescription drug Part D plans, and will address individual questions from the group.
New members are always welcome to join the Women’s Club. Contact Carol at carolejdaly@gmail.com, Gloria at rdabook@cox.net or Marian at rgkmek@yahoo.com.
