On July 11th the Club was invited to join the Kittery Rotary Afterhours Club for its first meeting of the 2019-20 year. Several of us joined the KRAH in their club change-over meeting as Club Co-Presidents Nancy Peschel and Alan Robinson took the reins over from now-Past President Dave Cuttle. Alan and Nancy will serve two years as co-Presidents in a unique adaptation which will provide continuity thru the end of the 2020-21 Rotary year.
The Hotel also has a 'Kittery Point "Room in the back where they will meet for DG Andy's Official visit
On or around the 2nd week in August the Club will be presenting bags of books and workbooks to the graduates of the Mitchell pre-school Jumpstart program. Club members are asked to find appropriate age new or like-new books for the 5 year old future kindergartners. Pauli has the lead for the program and all the club is invited to join her when it comes time for presentations to this years 16 students.
And the Breakfast Bowl begins!
President Eric creates a fissure in the club!
To create new interest in Club Assemblies, President Eric split the attendees in to two groups. Those Groups, now the Whiz Kidz and the Breakfast Wizards, have their own quarterbacks (Steve for the Kidz & Samik for the Wizards). Those teams will recruit new members from future meeting attendees in a Game which will continue during Club assemblies for the 2019-20 year. Only answers voiced by the "Quarterback" will count.
Points are awarded for correct anwsers, and a correct answer can earn a bonus question for more points. A wrong answer allows the opposite team an opportunity to "steal" points by providing the correct answer. Six "Categories" were laid out this morning - I believe the catagories are subject to change.
At the end of the first morning of competition the scores are (I think) 40 points to the Whiz Kids and 20 points to the Breakfast Wizards
Rob reported back to the club on a meeting he and Dave F had with Dan Hale to learn more about running a 5K run/walk as a fund raiser. Dan had initiated and run the Firefighter's event for many years and was a great help. Their initial take was this event sounded very promising but a commitment by the club to proceed should be made soon for anything this year. A target of the next Club Assembly was established. Given the fact that District Governor Andy is coming to the Club August 20th for his Official visit, the decision was made to make the next meeting, August 27th, Club Assembly for August.
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.
There is now all of $73 in the Pot and Dave G had the lucky ticket ~
Missed by 2 cards
The deck shrinks as the King of Diamonds leaves ~
and the Pot will continue to grow!
