Thank you to our presenters who  were all very professional, prepared and informative.  We heard so many compliments about your presentations and I am passing that on to all of you.  It was a pleasure to hear about your clubs and programs, all of which we benefited from.
Thank you to the clubs who served as hosts in the Hospitality Suite - Rancho Bernardo Rotary Club, La Jolla Golden Triangle Rotary Club and the San Diego Downtown Breakfast Rotary Club.
Special thanks to Conference Co-Chairs - Jim Hughes, Mike Steiman and Karen Steiman and to our tech folks - Mike Metts and RYLA.  We were able to use RYLA equipment which saved us a lot of money on the conference.  Mike Metts worked the entire weekend setting up, operating the equipment and breaking it all down.  Larrry Potter, who brought a lot of his own equipment as well, also worked the entire weekend.  Philippe Lamoise assisted Mike and Larry.  Angie Gallegos prepared several of the PowerPoint presentations.  
Thank you to Clara Harris and Larry Potter who presented a very beautiful Celebration of Life ceremony for those Rotarians we have lost during the past Rotary year  Stan Prowse rang the Rotary bell for each Rotarian remembered.  Joy Prowsee offered the final prayer.  I was honored to be the "flower girl".
Rotary International President, Barry Rassin sent us the best Presidential Representative possible in Tusu and Dorcas Tusubira from Kampala, Uganda.  There were great additions to the conference.  Philippe Lamoise and Dugan Moore served as their aides.  
We couldn't have had the fabulous conference we enjoyed without the tireless efforts of those mentioned above, all of whom are dedicated and generous Rotarians in District 5340.
