Meeting: Club Assembly
Today was Club Assembly. Marie reported that she and Dave were working on the update to the Club Bylaws and should be ready to present them at the next Board Meeting. Rotary International has revised the standard Club Constitution and also the format of the Standard Club By-Laws and the Clubs are required to make the necessary changes and implement them both.
It was proposed that the Club"purchase" a brick on the new patio of the 2nd Christian Church as a club Visibility Initiative, the Club approved the purchase of a larger size brick to be engraved with the RI Wheel and the Club name for $150.
President Linda requested Maryna to give a "Classification Talk", a Classification Talk is a short talk about oneself, one's vocation, and interests made usually soon after joining a club and sometimes also by "seasoned" members as well, so the club members get to know more about each other. Maryna certainly held the club spell bound.
Maryna is from Belarus, when asked she sometimes tells people "Russia" because so few people know where Belarus is. Maryna told us a little about her "village" (about 10,000 people) and her early life.
Maryna got into college early in Minsk, the capital city of Belarus, and did well enough with her involvement at school to get a full scholarship. She traveled to the US on a student visa and was working at the Weathervane when she met and married her husband. She dropped out of school with one year to go. She got involved with Subway. She says her aim originally was to move to a big city (NYC?) but each time she thought she might, she was offered more responsibities and opportunities ~ I believe I heard that she now handles marketing for about 114 stores, and then picked up more responsibilities with the Aroma Joes. She had to "Scoot" out early because she was mentoring students at Traip on motivation. She and her husband have two daughters who we had a chance to meet when they joined us at our last "5th Tuesday social.
A real "go-getter", Maryna is definitely a great asset to our community and our Club.
But she doesn't like having her picture taken while she talks :-)
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.
Pam Gray's ticket was drawn this morning, giving her a shot at the now $414 pot
