Rotary Board Meeting April 1,2019


Present: Phil, Bob, Jim, Hubert, Chris P, Nick, John, Chris V


The board discussed what venue and day we should meet. Monday will not work for either Charley’s or Baratta’s (Winery). Wednesday is a bad day because of golf activity. The board liked the idea of Charley’s on Tuesday. Motion by Phil, second by Bob all approved.


ISU president is planning to come April 22 (a Monday). Phil said that the hospital is a possible location for that day. They have three rooms on the 4th Floor, with adequate parking and an elevator on the west building. Phil will pursue that.


Pickle ball group (Rich Hartley) requested funding for pickle ball courts. Motion by Phil, second by Bob to give $250.

Phil Phillips, Secretary


After our meeting I called Charley’s. They already have a group on Tuesday’s 2 of the 4 weeks. In addition they will charge $13.95 and need a guarantee of 20 meals. They could host us Thursday but we would not have a reserve, if they need the room for another (paying) customer they would bump us.


So, I went back to the board and discussed Baratta’s on Thursday. I talked to John B. and he offered Baratta’s on Thursday, 22 meal guarantee at $10/meal. This is what we have been paying the Winery. I discussed by email this info with the board and they voted to take that offer. I sent an email and got support for all but one member for Baratta’s on Thursday.


I went back to John and he can have us this Thursday, April 4. Shellie Haluska has agreed to speak then.
