Optimist Meeting 10-19-17 – Our speaker this morning was Captain Scott Mulvehill who is Commanding Officer of Naval Base Coronado. Captain Mulvehill came with his public affairs officer Sandy DeMunnik.

The base is 100 years old this year and the captain told us of the planned events as well as the projects that are extending the life and influence of “the Quarterdeck of the Pacific”. The key building effort he noted was the ten year effort down in IB where the Special Warfare Community is getting a big upgrade. The impact on State 75 was the subject of questions as was sewage from the TJ river and all the critters and endangered stuff we coexist with.

Next week State Senator Ben Hueso will be our speaker.
