Passport to Fun
Roberta and Joan will work on this.

Tentative plan of doing it in the bowling alley.  Mix everyone up.
Put all the names in a hat and pull out names.

Something akin to the couch potato.

Jerry proposes that we make Deirdre and Brian’s donor an honourary member ($30,000 contribution to date) - Deirdre and Brian to check with her - perhaps a Christmas centerpiece offered in the meantime.

Iola and 2 Rotaract as honourary members – with an anticipated date in January 2020?

Salvation Army Kettle Campaign

Jerry distributed schedule.
We usually give a donation of $500 from the club.

Jeff reported $2978.50 from Rotary Noel - our portion from wine wall and silent auction items.

 Induction of New Member - Lynda Simpson
Jerry shared that Lynda started coming about 6 months ago and jumped in right from the start and participated in programs and events and even offered to co-chair committees.  Lynda demonstrated the Rotary spirit even before she became a member!

Joan performed the induction.  Lynda is retired - winters in Arizona — volunteered for 10 years in Arizona.  She likes to give and serve.  Lynda went to Shred-a-thon and Pat invited Lynda to a meeting. 

Lynda loves the social aspect of the service as well.

Spoke to service above self - strong bonds of friendship locally and worldwide.  Joan gave Lynda the new member kit - and also referred to the 4 way test -  we all recited the 4 way test.

Jerry presented Lynda with a pin!

Deirdre presented Lynda with a Christmas poinsettia.

Happy dollars followed the induction.


 Jerry adjourned meeting at 8:32am
