Women’s Club Luncheon: June 8, 2017 at 12:00 in the Clubhouse

The May Luncheon at the Clubhouse was a festive occasion with bouquets for all the mothers, the introduction of two new members, Stephanie Prince and Julie Skillman, and the election of our new slate of officers for next year: President, Lydia Reese; Co-Vice Presidents, Terry Link and Maria Elena Banks; Secretary, Bunny Mahoney; Treasurer, Cathy Tyson.
Our special guests included Dana Point Mayor Debra Lewis and Marla Miller, our Niguel Shores General Manager.
The day’s distinguished speakers were Ursula Luna-Reynosa, Director of Dana Point’s Community Development Department; Kelly Reenders, Dana Point Economic Development Manager; and Russ Chilton, Dana Point Chief of Police.
Ursula and Kelly presented an overview of the city’s demographics and discussed plans for Dana Point’s future development including both residential and commercial space. Slides of architectural renderings for the Doheny Village Project illustrated a complete redevelopment with residential units, industrial/market space, and a thoroughfare with roundabouts replacing the current traffic snarls along Camino Capistrano. They pointed out that tourism is our biggest industry and the city is looking at proposals for more hotel rooms in areas of the Headlands, Cannons, Green Lantern, and Harbor Drive.
Police Chief Chilton mentioned how fortunate we are to live in Dana Point, rated one of the top ten coastal communities according to a recent article in Coastal Living magazine. Regarding crime, the Chief reminded us that 58% of thefts occur in UNLOCKED vehicles. He mentioned that Niguel Shores is visited by police for more false burglar alarms than for any other reason.
As our outside activity this month, San Clemente Villas is providing lunch and a tour of their independent and assisted living facilities on Tuesday, June 6. The Villas shuttle will be available for 12 people, and carpools are also being arranged. Sign up in the NSCA Office.
To end the club year, our annual Tea and Installation of Officers will be held on Thursday, June 8 in the Clubhouse.
Remember to bring your own fancy tea cup, wear a pretty hat if you like, and come to enjoy all the sweet and savory delights of a formal tea hosted by our Women’s Club Board.
