Carole O called out for contributions to the Rotary International Foundation. The board extended
the club match through December. Suggestions were made from the floor the we become an
‘every member every year’ club. There is no minimum amount and this money can come right
back to our communities. Our members have satisfied the GRANT request requirements but we
do not have a target, yet.
Chris filled the Sergeant at Arms and warned anyone with ‘socks on’ that they owed a dollar.
Happy Fines were abundant. Many members put multiple fines in the basket.
