91 Rotarians, family members, and guests gathered together for a fabulous, front row seat overlooking Jefferson Street, Fisherman's Wharf, and the San Francisco Bay to view the Blue Angels in motion on Saturday, October 9, 2021. The maneuvers and the choreography of the Blue Angels left the audience in awe. The location of the event, the space, the food, and the d├ęcor were spot on.  
 
Special guests included Lewis Loeven who is the Executive Director of Fleet Week, Rear Admiral Michael "Mouse" Baze who is the Commander of Expeditionary Strike Group 3, and Dr. Elisa Stephens who is the president of the Academy of Art University. Each spoke briefly about the significance of Fleet Week and the joy of being able to gather together again.

Club President Mary Liu's motto this year is to "Have Fun", and we certainly had fun.
