Update and Photos From the September 2022 Charter Chapter Luncheon in Newport Beach

Tom Getz receives his Certificate of Appreciation from Charter Chapter Coordinator Michael Sholer following his presentation on the South Pacific (see more photos below).

After a three-year COVID-related hiatus, Charter Chapter TCC members returned to our traditional September meeting site at the beautiful, bayside Newport Beach Yacht Club in Newport Beach on Saturday, Sept. 10.

Members and six guests assembled for an afternoon of food, fellowship and fun as we welcomed three potential new members and a visiting out-of-state member.

Popular presenter, Tom Getz offered a fascinating multi-media program, “South Pacific, Part I” which took us on an exotic and fascinating journey with stops in Micronesia (Palau), Polynesia (Tahiti and Samoa) and Melanesia (the Solomon Islands and the Trobriands). We were captivated by the sights, the sounds and (almost) the scents of these tropical destinations.
