Our regular meeting is at 12:15 at Villa Olivia.  The first meeting of each month this the Rotary Board Meeting held at 11:00 am also at Villa Olivia.
The Rotary 5000 was fantastic!  Well Done.  
We are volunteering to work bingo at the Fourth of July Celebration this year.  Our shift will be July 3 from 5-11pm.  We are looking for about 12-15 volunteers.
The club will seek a matching grant from the District Image Grant for a portable banner sign we can take out to the community to raise Rotary Club awareness.  Also using the grant to boost our club's social media presence.  The Banner has been delivered and will be making an appearance soon. 
Donna reported that the charities account has $41,531. This amount already accounts for the shelter box donation being made. However, the operating account is getting low so dues invoices will need to go out shortly. 
The Octoberfest planning is well underway and they are meeting next week.  The event will Sept. 30- Oct. 1 at Liesberg Park. 
James reported that Stephanie Gandsey will give her classification speech on the 19th.  He also reported that he has volunteers for the food distribution on 5/25 at the Hanover Township Food Pantry at Astor Avenue from 9-11 am. More are welcome, but we should be covered.
Paula reported that the club selected Bennett Schumacher as our club’s choice, but he was not selected by the District.  James and Donna noted that the club will give Ben a vocational scholarship from the club for being our candidate following past practice.  Donna suggested that Bennett attend a Rotary Meeting in the future to receive the check.
Bill and Donna reported on the Rotary 5,000.  Donna estimates that we will make about 10,000 from the event, but not all bills are in.  Paula noted that Bryan Mraz who won $1,000 is donating $500 of it back to the club.  It was a great 5000, with some very good ideas that should carry on to next year.  Paula made a list and will send it out to the 5000 committee for input.  
Bill reported that the installation dinner will be on June 23.  
Ray announced the next Random Rotary will be at the Still at 5:30 pm on May 26.  On June 30 Preet has offered to host Random at their home. 
Ray also noted that we will be beer pouring on July 2 from 2:30 to 5:00 p.m.  The Parade is on July 3 (Sunday) and Rotary has a slot to work the bingo tent on July 3 from 5-11. 
The theme for Rotary this year has inspired a new spin on our first meeting of the month.  Each month will now include some kind of service activity.  The sergeants from the previous month are in charge of planning the service activity. Sam and Mike would like our next service project to help lift the spirits of the residents of the Ukraine.  We will be writing notes of encouragement.
