Program:  Phil Ball introduced Charles Cobb, Englewood Councilman at Large and Victoria Pulley, of the Englewood Recreation Department.  They presented on the many ways the Rec. dep’t. is serving youth in the community.  The emphasis was on the recent track team which qualified to go to the national finals in Sacremento.  A newspaper article indicated that the club lacked sufficient funds to pay all the expenses and the community was asked to donate.  Victoria indicated that the City budget pays the basic cost for all the rec. dep’t. teams and that the teams that move on to higher levels of competition are not funded now by the City for those events.  Charles says the Council is studying the issue to find ways to support the positive achievements of the youth without also increasing taxes on residents.  Our Club is very interested to help with specific financial support, as well as with the larger issue of helping the youngsters throughout the City have increased opportunities. 
 
50-50: With 34 cards in the deck and $158 in the pot, Dave Chazen’s number was called.  Since he was absent our guest, Victoria, picked the Jack of Clubs on his behalf.
