The Rotary Club of
Chartered 1925
Meeting Minutes 04/29/2019
  • Charlie called the meeting to order, John Tata lead us in the Pledge of Allegiance, and Rennie lead us in the prayer. Dean (who dat?) collected the happy and sad fines. Recurring theme is welcome back Dean (mostly Happy $), and Let's Go Red Sox (mostly Sad $).
  • Claire won the raffle, but no Joker was pulled. The deck is getting low, so your odds to win are increasing! Attend the meeting and you have a great chance to win.
  • The calendar raffle winner was Ryan Hocker, the ticket having been sold by John Tata.
  • There were no membership updates.
  • New Bulletin is a work in progress, and will improve over time. Julie will send to Charlie to proofread before general distribution going forward.
  • There are 9 CLI (Community Leadership Institute) prospects. The Club is looking for members to speak to that group on May 23rd at 5 pm at Oak Hill Country Club (NOT Christina's Restaurant as previously stated). Ruby will confirm if she is available.
  • Topics at the eBoard meeting last week included Club Participation, Why did you join, How can the Club help new members succeed. 
  • Lively discussion included:
    • Contact members who habitually miss meetings
    • What classifications/professions are needed
    • How to improve participation in Club Projects
