Club Assembly, chaired by President James Hawker
Time to evaluate the goals set for this year and for the  next 3 years.
Peter and his team have done a great job.  It has been a very successful year.  Members have really contributed.
We will commence work on the coke van with the grant monies.  Peter Baur has ordered parts and we are waiting for them to arrive.  The previous motion to sell the van if nothing happened has now been superseded and we are on to stage 2.  Further grants are being looked in to.  We should be aiming for more. If we don't get another grant what should we do? 
a.  Use club money 
b.  Sell an incomplete van
President James strongly recommended that we commit to the completion of the van.  Storage of the van needs to be considered. Mary Roebuck has offered her shed.
Finances for 20-21 caused some anxiety but we have achieved what we hoped to do and more.
Rotarian Justin Hill spoke about the opportunity to speak to young people at the MB Football club.
3rd July, Cornerstone presentation.  Sign in at the front office.
Vocational is getting set up for a strong forthcoming year.  The club has exceeded its target for the year.  IPP Shawn Hutchinson deserves a chocolate frog.  As of 1st July 22 the club has 34 members.  The target for 22- 23 is to gain 3 more.
Chris needs sizes for aprons and shirts to be purchased.
Social activities- Chris has already begun these with the Steam Ranger trip.  20 attendees so far.
Partners' night - To be held every 6 weeks.  COVID caused some things to be cancelled.
There are now 9 members.
  New pictures posted on MB Community Chat.  25 likes.  Should be one of our major goals.  Promoting the club at the MB Farmers' markets will occur in the new year.  The MB Council is very important to us.
COVID was a pain in the butt but decisions were made which reversed our decline.  Al financial documents are on the web site.  According to figures at the end of May, incoming President Karen will receive more funds than ever before. This is the best fundraising result we have had for a long time.  Thank you ot you all.
President Nominee Designate Ingy Abdelshafei has taken two of our club banners to present to Rotary Clubs in Egypt.
