With the return of President Rich and serving the purpose of Club Assembly the membership was updated on the following issues/programs.
  1. State of the District report given by PDG Drewitz. Membership, always an issue, may force the blending of Districts 7330 and 7300 to form a new district. Membership trending downward will force the “blending of the two districts over the next two years”.
  • Foundation giving is going well in 7330. A reported anonymous single donation of $85,000 reinforced the membership giving.
  • Public Image of Rotary and what its Clubs are doing is being led by Joe Piszczor for the next 3 years. Joe presents programs on resources/better use of technology in promoting Rotary.
  1. China Little Flower project being led by Diana Ambrose will have its February fund raising raffle and tickets will be available soon…19-20-21 are the dates to watch the Lottery numbers!
  2. Scholarships for high school seniors has been revamped by President-Elect Price. Members of the Board will review and select each school’s recipient. Deadlines for schools returning the applications is March 23 and the awards luncheon will be held on May 29.
  3. Trivia Night changes in the “baskets” were reviewed to include 12-15 with a higher value. Today’s O-R had a great article on Trivia Night and information on organizing teams and fees were discussed. More to come…
  4. Pavilion Project progressing with funding as roof was completed and the restroom work is beginning. With the second $200,000 from LSA and our other funding streams, the goal of $100,000 for the 3 year project will be met. GREAT NEWS
  5. Membership is remaining steady within our Club with new members being approved and more in line for approval by the Board.
