Meeting Minutes - October 11th, 2017
We had no speaker today but guest, Lorraine, will be the speaker next week and she will tell us about many things Disney!
A banner was presented to Kirby’s for their outstanding help with the Best & the Wurst. Thanks everyone. We did very well; $12,786.
Members, Geri, Isabel, Helen L., David and Helen B. attended the Bronx Club’s Be Italian for a Night event on Tuesday evening where they had a very fine time.
Puerto Rico has answered our offer of assistance, stating that they would appreciate funds and after discussion, it was suggested that a $500 check be sent to the Rotary Club. This met with general approval.
Will our Holiday Party take place on Dec.1 or Dec. 8? Where? Traditions? Isabel and Rosie will organize the party and get back us with the details.
Al invited us to have a table at the Lions Club Halloween Parade/Festival on Oct.28 (rain date Oct. 29), 2PM to 4PM. We would have kids’ games, bubbles to give, etc. Rosie volunteered to be the coordinator. Please contact her if you can help out either of those days.
