We had a small but lively group this morning. Suzanne Manvell updated on the membership Seminar and were looking for someone to attend the second session on March 25th in Oshawa. From this seminar Suzanne brought back that we need to update our website and add some video (I sent the order form into ClubRunner today). We also need to practise our elevator speech. I’m going ask someone to give us their speech each week. The Toronto West Club says that “Meet Up” has helped them bust their membership. Five Scarborough Clubs are hosting a large event for the 2018 Rotary International Conference and there will be a meeting in early April of West End Clubs to discuss similar possibilities.


The TV Auction Committee is meeting next Wednesday and I will attend with my ideas and listen to theirs. If anyone else wants to attend, call me.


We’re moving forward with the Wine & Cheese Event with the Roncesvalles United Church so we’re looking for tickets to sell and items for auction. Sally and I are offering a week at our Florida Home, Suzanne is offering up some time at her cottage on Lake Erie and Berk has some stuff up his sleeve. This is a real opportunity to promote Rotary and have a party and Celebrate our 30th Anniversary. The Date is Friday April 28th and Cathy will have tickets and posters for us soon.


I have 3 submissions for a Paul Harris Fellow Award to date. Please submit your candidates to me ASAP. March 18th is the cut off.


The Roncesvalles Refugee Relief group has taken on a family from Romero House and are in need of the items below for this weekend if possible. Please let me know if you have anything on the list that you can donate. This RRR Group has gotten active in a number of ways. Please check their website below.

Thank you! There will be no Board Meeting this month however, Robin is looking into how we can help the West End KEYS who spoke to us last week. Our speaker next week is Lisa Randall from Culture Links. I am hoping to have special Speakers on March 16th since our District Governor, District Governor Assistants both current and future will be in attendance.
