No Joke today but I will put the Membership Minute in here.
 
Jared was the Membership Minuteman. He joined our Rotary Club 4 years ago to meet people. He now has 3 beautiful children and wants to set a good example for them.

President Jim opened the meeting, Nicole read the 4 way test and Cathy did the invocation.
We sang O Canada.
Joslin was Sargeant at Arms: There were 23 members. Our one Guest was Liska . She was a representative of the Hilborn family who donated the land for Dumfries Rotary Park.
 
The format of the meeting today was ' cocktail style' with a bar, nibblies and buffet sandwiches. Too bad for those who missed it.

Some of you are wondering how the 3-Club contest works. It's actually very simple.  First, the Cambridge Rotary club that raises the most money per member wins.  The president of that club will be fed and otherwise waited-on hand and foot at an upcoming event by the presidents of the two losing clubs.
Fundraising is tracked online, and the quickest way to contribute is to go here and Give Now to sponsor Patrick.  You will get a charitable receipt immediately by email.  But while you are there, you can click to Join My Team.  Once you have joined the team, you will have a personal link to share to get your own sponsors.  All money raised by team members is added up, and you don't even need to go in the run.

On Sunday, May 24, 2015, the three Rotary Clubs of Cambridge and the Cambridge Times will invite runners, joggers and walkers to show they care about children in Cambridge with special needs. Once again we will be asking individuals, schools, teams, businesses and industry to help us continue to support KidsAbility Centre for Child Development. Last year over four hundred people participated to make the day a huge success. The presentation of $40,000 to KidsAbility in Cambridge to assist in providing life-changing services and programs to over twelve hundred children showed, yet again, that this event is providing a significant boost to this essential community organization.  Since 1999, the Cambridge Times Rotary Classic has helped raise $670,000 for KidsAbility. Rotarians estimate the total funds raised from this event since being established in 1987 is well over $1 million. Check out the web site for more information http://rotaryfunrun.ca/
