Good Morning Rotarians,
Here are the meeting notes from last week.
The opening words were given by Jerry Branch
The Hat was given by Vance Finch.  She told us a story about a family vacation to a place were the accommodations were several miles off of the beaten path and was quite rustic.  To keep her young daughters entertained, the family engaged in a brief investigation of bats which turned out to be a highlight, including the “bat quiz” which was given to the girls.
  1. Our meeting on Tuesday, October 2nd will be an assembly meeting. Jim Fearnside and Harry Wohlhandler will give us a presentation on their Portland, ME visit to Other club business to be discussed.
  2. October 23rd meeting will be an evening meeting at the Dublin Community Center which will be held in conjunction to Rotary Week October 22-29.
The speaker was Venu Rao, who is the District Governor of Rotary district 7870 this year.  Venu gave an inspirational talk about his goals for district clubs which include recruitment of new members as well as retaining current members, having each club participate in a Global and District Grants.  He pointed out that fund raising is important for all Rotary clubs as well as personal contributions to help fund and promote club charitable activities.  Venu’s message was well received and we hope he will have another opportunity to speak to our club at a future meeting.
