Ruth Rollins at her last meeting as Club President, introduces the featured speaker

2013 Membership Drive

The March 24, 2013 meeting of the Point Loma Democratic Club had 39 members in attendance and 18 guests for a total of 57 that heard the great presentation from Dianne Lane and Pam Page. Currently the club has 74 paid up memberships, so nearly 53 % of our members were in attendance. That is very good. Some of the larger clubs may have 200+ members with only 25 to 30 showing up at meetings. So be proud of yourselves PLDCians and keep on showing up and adding input to your club. Bring your friends and neighbors too, because it would be nice to have more members. In 2011 we had a record, 110 members. It is not too early to think about signing up for the June 22, 2013 Ocean Beach Street Fair Booth. Make a note of the date and keep it open. Manning the booth at the Street Fair is fun and an opportunity to meet many new people and sign up more members. You do not want to miss our next …

Read all the Democratic Club News From Across the County

Following a great suggestion by Maureen Sweeney from the Rancho Santa Fe club, Ruth Rollins, Director of the Council of Clubs, recently commissioned a website that aggregates news and events from all of the Democratic clubs across the county. It also enables you keep up to date with upcoming events that interest you. http://sdcdpclubs.org Presently there are eleven clubs that are providing updates, and Ruth hopes to have more added in the near future. Chula Vista Coronado Dems for Equality East County Escondido Lake San Marcos Pacific Beach Point Loma Rancho Santa Fe Uptown Young Democrats Ruth is also working with the clubs to encourage them to update their websites to the same technology that is used by the Point Loma Democratic Club. So far Chula Vista, Pacific Beach, Uptown and the Veterans clubs are in the process of upgrading their sites. As well as bringing improvements for each club, the changes will facilitate easier sharing of news items between the clubs. Related articles Nancy Witt – Volunteer of the Year!

Greetings From Our New Prez!

It is with much humility that I step into the shoes of the inimitable Ruth Rollins, as your new Point Loma Democratic Club president. She’s going to be a very tough act to follow. It’s been fortunate that I’ve been following Ruth around for the last six months in her special training program for deer-in-the-headlights greenhorns. Your newly elected club officers have been working hard to hammer out a team approach to the running of your club because it belongs to all of us. Let us know what you like, when we do something you like, and let us know what you don’t like. We need to hear from you. We also need to have the stragglers pay up on their dues. It’s an indication of how well we’re doing and the value that we bring to you. We’re all volunteers so encourage us and give us a pat on the back by picking up your pen, writing out that check and mailing it to: The Point Loma Democratic Club PO Box 7802 San Diego, …

Ruth Rollins Honored by the Point Loma Democratic Club

Ruth Rollins the Point Loma Democratic Club’s President from 2009 to 2013 was honored at the monthly meeting on February 24, 2013 in appreciation for her outstanding efforts and accomplishments. The honor was presented to Ruth by the Club’s new leadership, President Susan Peinado and Vice President Carol Heasley on behalf of the entire Club membership.

Ruth Rollins is much admired by us all not only as a leader but as a friend. Going forward, as well as serving as the Club’s Treasurer Ruth is …
