Meeting Minutes - February 22, 2017
Reginald (Reggie) LaFatyette, Westchester County Board of Elections Commissioner, gave us an overview of the Board of Elections’ duties. This is the place to go for voting info such as where to vote, do you need an absentee ballot? For more information, visit http://www.westchestergov.com/boe
Reggie said it is very difficult, if not impossible, to vote illegally and explained that there is checking and rechecking so that someone cannot vote twice by using the name of a deceased voter or some other way. He also stated that there was no mass conspiracy during the last election. There was much discussion and many questions about this matter and others pertaining to the election process. Thank you, Reggie, for your time and presentation. Please come again.
Alice R. presided and the first order of business was to induct our new member, Tom Pomposello, into the Club. Diana Q., his sponsor, pinned him with his member pin and the Club welcomed him into our midst.
Alice asked us to save the date, 6-21-17, for the Bronx Club’s President’s Gala at Marina Del Ray, beginning at 6:00PM.
In reference to the District Paul Harris Luncheon to be held on April 8; one cannot register just for the luncheon, one must register for the whole day. However, if one member registers for the day, others may attend as guests, paying $60. per person. David has registered for the whole day and Helen L. will send him the names of those wishing to attend the Luncheon. More info is forthcoming. Alice gave an overview of the Paul Harris Fellow Award and the honor of being chosen to receive one.
