March 29 - Matthew Thornton - Western Director of the Boy Scouts of America
Events Upcoming Meetings and More
March 29 - Matthew Thornton
Matthew is the Western Director of the Boy Scouts of America. This speaker and subject should be as non-controversial as they come. So, why did the Boy Scouts allow girls into the organization? Why was it necessary to respond the Trump's comments on the Boy Scouts? Where is the scouting world headed when the younger generation does not seem to be interested? Nothing to talk about here, is there!
April 5 - Dr. James Salz
Dr. Salz is one of the most respected eye surgeons in Los Angeles, becoming the first to perform "all Laser LASIK" and serves as the CEO and founder of Trusted LASIK Surgeons and is a clinical Professor of Ophthalmology, USC Roski Eye Institute. More importantly, however, Jim joined the non-profit Flying Doctors of mercy, serving as a volunteer performing eye surgery in Mexico. In addition to telling us about his role on the Mexico Mission Surgery, Jim will, for us older folks, cover "Common Eye Problems as we Age."
April 12 - Joke Day
