Meeting Recap
                Greetings fellow Rotarians! The theme of today’s meeting was golf! This year’s Golf Tournament is scheduled to take place on Wednesday, June 12th at the Links at Lang Farm golf course. As most of you know, this is our Club’s largest fundraiser. The money we raise from this event accounts for more than 60% of the charitable funds that we disburse to worthy causes each year. Thanks to Dave Johnson and the rest of his hard-working Golf Committee, the groundwork for this event has already been laid out.  In order for this event to once again be a success, we need every one of our members to hit the ground running and to ask as many businesses as possible to support this event.  Each week, Dave Johnson will update the list of sponsors.  He and other members of the Golf Committee can also point you in the direction of potential sponsors to solicit.
District 7850 Conference
            This year’s District 7850 annual conference will be held in Sherbrooke, Quebec from May 3rd through May 5th. This is a great event that allows members to meet Rotarians from across our District and to learn more about what other Clubs in our region are doing.  The cost of attendance for a couple is just under $600.00US and $430.00US for an individual. The cost includes overnight accommodations for 2 nights, all meals and admission to all of the District programs for the weekend.   Please visit the District website at for more information about this event.
