This week we welcomed 16 members and 3 guests, Jonathan Evans, who is becoming a member soon, Rotarian John Bathurst from the Vancouver club and Rotarian Peter Keur from the Netherlands.
Rotary Moment:
James Fox brought us the Rotary moment today, he spoke about the Rotaract Club of the Caduceus in Mumbai, it has 32 members. Yet when a service project demands attention, the club can muster hundreds of volunteers from across Mumbai and five other major Indian cities. It’s a good example of how Rotaractors maximize their numbers through the strategic use of technology.
* Our changeover lunch will be on June 23rd from 1-4 pm. Make sure you let Alfredo know if you are attending as the number of attendees is crucial for planning the event.
* Ana Fernandes from Odlum Brown provided us with an update on the state of our club's foundation. Happily, our returns have been positive and this allows us to keep granting scholarships.
* Save the date! Our Day of the Dead fundraising event will take place on October 27th. Stay tuned for more detail coming soon.
* Banner exchange with Peter Keur:
