President’s Message

March, 2018

Glenn Carpenter  President   CAVI


I am giving each of you sufficient notice to begin making some plans … The 2020 Blue Knight International Convention will most likely occur in IRELAND. This will be officially announced at this summer’s International convention. Having two years notice should make this one pretty easy to budget for…LOL. If you have never attended an International Convention, you have severely missed a lot of fun, and comradery.  Anyone who has attended one will regale you with how much they enjoyed going and their plans of attending more. The hospitality shown by the European Blue Knights is phenomenal. This is a MUST to be added to your bucket lists.

The weekend of June 1st/2nd (Friday/Saturday) we will be visiting the Reagan Presidential Library. We plan on going up on Friday and stay overnight so that we can be at the Library when it first opens up on Saturday morning. I have included the specifics to this message:

- Reagan Library: Cost - $25.00/person general; $22.00/senior

- Hotel: Courtyard by Marriott Oxnard for 06/01 overnight @$179 (including tax/fees)

            600 East Esplanade Drive, Oxnard CA


Hotels in this area are very expensive. This was the only reasonably priced hotel with a 3 or more-star Yelp/TripAdvisor reviews. Please make your reservations now.

We have an opening for a new Greeter at our monthly meetings. This is one of the most vital positions in the chapter. Unfortunately, Sharon will be unable to continue doing the awesome job she has done. If this is something that you might be interested in doing, please let me know soonest.
