A few members brought in food and personal care items to donate to the Hope Food Pantry.  This is the only pantry in Moravia now; a $6 donation (monetary or in kind) equates to 35 lbs of meat able to be purchased.

Tom gave the club an update on Joan, and Gregg was able to attend his first meeting in a while.  Here’s to both of them feeling better!

Wayne reported that there was slight complication with the District Grant, but that it had been sorted out; missed filling out a few sections and a misunderstanding on wording.  Both, the First Aid Instructor Kit and Training and the Scholarship application, were submitted.

Mike and Levi are in the process of completing the Grant Final Report for 2018-19.

The club polio fund collection, RotoPig, is at $65, with $3300 donated in Val’s name.

The club received thanks for contributing to the Books for the World; the $115 donation contributed to purchasing multiple pallets.

There will be a Finance Committee meeting, before the regular club meeting – 3/19, at 5pm at Mike’s office.

March 23rd, Jamie (from the Betty Blue), will be participating in a Polar Plunge at Taughannock Falls (yes I had to Google how to spell Taughannock).  There is a donation jar at the Betty Blue with proceeds benefiting the Special Olympics.

The Vernon-Verona-Sherrill club is asking for volunteers for two FFA breakfast events; March 23-24 and March 30-31, 7am – 12pm (can do one or more for one or more hours) at VVS High School. If you can help, please email your availability to Sarah Ouellette, the VVS FFA Advisor, at souellette@vvsschools.org.

District Training is April 6th from 8am – 12pm at VVS High School.  All club officials are encouraged to attend.

April 30th meeting is cancelled – District Conference is the following weekend, May 3-5.
