For the past term, we’ve been using the theme “Sentry for a Century” to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Branch’s founding, in 1919. Now that we are 102, it’s time to change the theme.
To that end, we’re asking for suggestions for a theme for the new term. Please submit your suggestions to:
Pastor Walter Ko of 3XL Christian Church had some extra turkey dinners to distribute. He made contact with the NAACP San Diego Branch through GODRadio1, and we teamed up with Never Leave One Behind and Johnson Elementary School to give dinners to the families of 50 veterans, 50 schoolkids, and 10 needy seniors.
We were so grateful to Ms Tevlin for her presentation!

The City of San Diego has released its draft “CAPER” (Consolidated Annual Performance Evaluation Report). This report describes how the City is doing spending HUD grant money.
The report is always eye-opening. In it, for example, you will find that they plan to help 62,000 people with equity issues over the 5 years of the period, and they have helped a grand total of 2,400 people in the first year (page 2.)
Another thing you will find is that $61M of HOME funds were spent with a total of 9 contractors, all of them white men (page 11.)
The public comment period on the report closes December 1st. We encourage you to read and comment on the reports; send your comments in writing to [email protected].
