President Elect Dennis was at the helm and the mic was not working… USE YOUR PLAYGROUND VOICE we all called out. Brenda used her teacher voice and shared a prayer and Dick Loomis led us in the Pledge of Allegiance.

Our attendance was low 38 summer vacations I guess and we welcomed 5 guests… Kyle Riley was a guest of Paul Lull, but Paul was UTL(Unable to locate), and our other guests were our speakers and support, Stephen, Brady, Dominic and Jonathan.

Stephan Dela Cruz was our speaker, and a surprising and engaging fellow is he. Stephan began in Karaoke mode singing “I Believe I Can Fly” and quickly gave us reason to believe that his life has been, and continues to be, an amazing one. From time in a juvenile hall cell charged with attempted murder of his father to heading a business with 600 employees today, Stephan has led first a misdirected and then a directed life. Stephan found a mentor–or rather he worked at finding the right person and convincing that person that he should take on the young man who called for help.

Through his own success Stephan decided to become a Superhero by passing on his VISION to others. His vision is in the power of words–and Stephen certainly demonstrated to us that power.

Further he talked of making an IMPRESSION of INFLUENCE. He advised us to live so young folk will want to want to copy our actions. And Stephan asked us to be aware of the POWER, Authority, and Responsibility we all hold in our lives and to use our time to mentor the next generation which is yearning for teachers of life.
