Meeting:  Club Assembly

              First order of business was the club acceptance of the 2018-2019 Budget. The final budget was sent out to the club last week. There were no comments or changes at this time and the Budget was accepted by hand vote of the members present.


             President Dave then brought up the Club Protection Policy (See last week's newsletter).

 Rob had one recommended addition to the Club Policy proposed by the District Protection Policy. The addition of written confirmation from each member that they  are aware of the Policy and that they will comply with the policy. There were several supporting comments. The Proposed Club Policy, with the addition of a certification by all existing and new club members, was voted on by hand vote and accepted by the club. Dave will certify to the District Protection Officer that the club has approved a Club Protection Policy and will draft an individual member certification form to be signed by each club member and maintained by the club. PP Linda has accepted the appointment as the Club Protection Officer. The formal resolution to be certified by the Club President is extracted and included at the end of this newsletter.


           Sue discussed the loss of Club member Pam H who resigned at the end of the 2017-2018 year. Sue talked about all of the things Pam has done for the club and recommended the Club send her an appreciation. The Club agreed and Sue volunteered to coordinate.


          Pam G talked about an international service project she had seen at the Rotary International Convention in Toronto. The project is rolling barrels to move water in countries where women and children carry water long distances, usually on the heads. The barrels cost $50 each and Pam recommended the Club fund 10 barrels out of undesignated service funds (Currently $1,858.38 in the budget.) After a brief discussion the club voted to approve the donation.(a $500 donation out of Undesignated Service funds)


           President Dave has asked Maryna to coordinate an auction steering committee and time was left at the end of the meeting for a short meeting of that group. 


50-50 Raffle:  50% of the pot goes for club administration and 50% goes to the

               lucky individual if raffle ticket is chosen and they select the one joker hidden

               in the ever  decreasing deck of cards. If the joker is not drawn then the pot rolls

               over to the next week.

               DGE Andy was asked to pull out the lucky raffle ticket this morning

                With great deftness he ~~~ pulled out one of his own!

                                                 There is $284.50 in the pot.


    Andy's luck went only so far!

He snagged the 8 of Diamonds from the deck

A winner for having played the Game!
