Letter from MCS about scholarships was also received. Colleen to contact school. If you wish to be on the scholarship committee this year, please contact her.
A longtime Rotary Auction patron will be downsizing soon and wanted Stuart to take a look at some of the things she has. After visiting and “shopping” he made a list of viable options for our auction in August. We thank them for thinking of us and their gracious donations!
Foundation report from Bob Balk – We are at 33% of our goal for the year. Our PolioPlus goal has been blown out of the water as we are at a whopping 3,282% of our goal!
Pat Kinney will be presenting on behalf of Hope Food Pantry at an upcoming meeting. Mike will contact her to set up a day that works for all.
Gregg did fines.
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.
