The meeting was brought to order by club president Rick Walter
Since Joanne Primavera already had her hand on her heart, she was asked to lead us in the pledge.
Greeter Dan Bartel and front desk jockeys John Pruitt and Rick Ostrander were all thanked for their hard work.
Our visitors were introduced, and the President shared some Rotary International information to keep this organization in our minds.
Ernie Norehad shared some inspirational moments with us – a cautionary tale of watching where you step when in a hospital.
Announcements and reminders –
  • James Nevers discussed the Duck Dash and when he mentioned that sponsorship was down, multiple Rotarians either indicated they would be a sponsor or increased their sponsorship level. What a great group.
  • Patty Sims reminded us of Miracle League and indicated that the first gathering is always the hardest to get volunteers to and encouraged the group to come be involved. The event that needs your volunteer help is Saturday the 27th – of course, you assistance is appreciated at all the games.
  • Bunco is coming up on the 27th – contact Steve Shinstrom if you have not signed up yet.
  • Terri Ebert let us know how well we did with the district 5030 blood drive!
  • There were more announcements about scholarship night and many other topics including Dave Aubry who is now running a dating service – more to come on this.
  • The Rotarian of the month was awarded to Amy Mutal for all she has done as club service chair – toping it off with a Sweetheart event. In addition, she assists in membership and is always willing to lend a hand.
Our speakers were from Sail Sand Point – Seth Muir and Bryan Rust who presented on what their organization does – provides summer camp scholarships for kids in need – rents out boats to the public and for company functions – has classes for all ages. Their mission is to bring the joy and life enhancing benefits of sailing and small boats to people of all ages, abilities and backgrounds.
Meeting was adjourned.
