Meeting Recap
 
            The annual golf tournament is in the books and once again, it was a tremendous success!  The weather was absolutely perfect and, following the consumption of several beers by the golfers, we were told that their caliber of play on the course was also perfect! Thank you to all who participated in this year’s event as either a volunteer or a golfer.  A special thank you goes out to Dave Johnson and his golf committee.  Thanks to the hard work they have been doing since January, this event was once again our most successful fundraiser of the year by a long shot (no pun intended).  Great work, team! 
 
Green Mountain Habitat for Humanity
 
            As many of you know, our Club has provided financial support to the new Green Mountain Habitat for Humanity project on Park Street in Essex Junction.  Habitat is seeking volunteers to help on the site, but slots are limited.  If you would like to volunteer, please sign up here: https://vermonthabitat.org/construction-volunteers/ 
 
Changeover Barbeque
 
            The annual Changeover Barbeque will be held at Maple Street Park on Wednesday, June 28th starting at 6:00pm.  Like last year’s event, Rotarians and their family members are welcome to enjoy some good food and celebrate the peaceful transition of power from the outgoing Board of Directors to the new Board of Directors.  There is no charge for this event, however, the Club needs an accurate head count well in advance.  If you and your family members are planning to attend, please sign up on the sheet that is being circulated at meetings.
 
Heavenly Pantry Food Shelf
 
            The next opportunities to volunteer at the food shelf will be on June 22nd, July 27th and August 24th. Please let Sharon Dettenrieder know if you are able to volunteer for any of those shifts.
 
 
Upcoming Meeting Schedule:  June 21, 2017 – We will be holding our final committee meetings of the year.
