Club Assembly: There are still slots available on the Street Fair sign up. Not many Interact students have signed up, and we’re still hoping more will show up. Burritos will be for sale for $6.00. Our cost is $4.00 and Mychal will be picking them up from Garcia’s restaurant. Need to coordinate with Jim on Paddle Board. Cost is $400.00 and we are selling tickets for $2.00. They changed the way the raffle tickets look. They have no numbers, because there is no need for them.
President Greg gave a slide presentation on Club Officers, Board Members and Committee Chairs: Youth Protection Chair- Jim Czarnowski Foundation Chair. – Lee Russell Community Service Chair-Rob Taylor
Public Relations Chair -Randy Echito Membership Chair- Dave Jones Programs C- Knox Peace C- Michelle SECRETARY- Julie Bemis TREASURER- Keith Brentlinger SERGEANT-at-Arms- Joe Sarnecky Brian asked about what is Youth Protection. Josh said it’s about insurance requirements and TG said that the guidelines are borrowed from the Boy Scouts. It keeps Rotary from getting sued by following certain guidelines, such as: adult participants have to have passed a criminal background check, there are restrictions on children riding in cars, number of children per adult supervisors and others. Someone else asked (might have been Brian again) “What is the function of the Sergeant-at Arms” answer.
To help maintain an orderly, dignified and effective Rotary Club meeting. (Not sure if that’s the answer given, since there was a lot of laughter, but it’s the real function) The slide presentation listed everyone in the Club. We have 20 members. Calendar of events: NOV. 14- Scott Carr, our District Governor will visit us. Randy has arranged for the 3 students from the Lead Conference to also attend. It is customary for the District Governor to meet with the Board before the Club meeting. DEC. 12- We are dark because we have our HOLIDAY Party. Starting at 6:00pm Santa will be there to give presents to needy Military Children who will be attending with their parents.
White elephant gift exchange will also take place. Gift value $25.00MAY 19- Rotary at Work day- This will be when we plant the trees at Goat Hill Golf Course. Brian volunteered. TG voiced his disapproval, because a private firm owns Goat Hill, he thinks that a public park would make more sense. (Ed note: Those of us who are golf duffers would agree; why would we want more trees to hit???) Marie offered to help TG in finding a more suitable place to plant the trees. Julie suggested we get Interact involved in the project. MAY 22- Blue Sash Banquet
JUN 25- Golf Tournament. Dale Maas from Oceanside Rotary has taken over as chairman and will be assisted by Mike Curtin. Dave Jones will stay on as chair of the golf committee for our Club, unless someone else would like to do that. There were other announcement and discussions: Rob Taylor is in charge of Operation Hope and asks for a member to volunteer each month to figure out what to serve. Randy Echito is in charge of the MLK student of the Month. Josh announced that there is a new Principal at El Camino High and maybe we can make contact with him. He likes the idea of Interact getting involved in the tree planting. SOCIAL Activities: Independence Day Parade- Joanne Blue Sash Dinner- Lee and Julie A Day at the Races- Scott Randy has been added as Administrator on the Facebook page. He plans on posting weekly photos.
Josh suggested we post our coming events. President Greg agreed, saying “we should get ahead of it instead of behind it.”Knox has November programs and there was discussion on who has upcoming months. Joe has December, and Marie has January. Brian said he really wants to get involved with programs. Josh is working on the brochure. He didn’t like the first draft. Interact would like for us to have more contact with them, perhaps a member a month could attend their meetings.
(the member would not have to attend a Youth Training to be able to go)Chad suggested we do a beach clean- up. So he has been put in charge of it.”HE WHO SPEAKS HAS OWNERSHIP”TG wanted to know what’s going on with the songbooks, but Keith wasn’t there to answer. President Greg has at least 50 Rotary banners for us.
Josh suggested we take a group picture every year at the Blue Sash Banquet If you are all wondering if my fingers are tired from all this writing the answer is YES.
Julie gave us an elevator speech if asked “WHAT is ROTARY”We are a leadership organization of local business professionals and civic leaders.
We meet regularly, get to know each other, form friendships and through that, we’re able to get things done in this community.
President Greg ended his slide presentation with TOGETHER we can make a DIFFERENCE.
