Call to order 7:15
 
No guests, no Rotary minute though Alan did mention original members.
 
Shredding Event
A letter from Urban Impact was read.  They are no longer doing free events.  Wise Owl is an alternative though they charge $400 for 4 hours.  Since we can make $4000 net some felt $400 was a small amount.
 
Beer Garden
BIA (Business Improvement Association) is very supportive and may provide funding, tables or chairs etc.  Dates not yet set but will be one in July and one in August.  Dates will be set by next meeting.  Space was questioned but Pat reported there is lots.  Expect to make $4000 x 2 net.  Some up front money is required which could be lost in case of rain out.  Security is one cost but is at least partly cancelable.  Weather insurance is to be studied.  Volunteers are required but there are two Rotary clubs and Rotaract involved.  Ability to sell 50/50 tickets was questioned and food space rental to a Mexican group was mentioned.  Sale of Margaritas was questioned.  Beer and Wine will be available. 
Some drink tickets will be purchased to get into area.  3 dog brewing and White rock Brewing have indicated interest.  Donation of beer questioned.  Pizza sale by Rotary suggested but keeping it warm and food safe were mentioned as problems.  Our small tents are also available.
 
5 Club Breakfast
Next meeting id Jan 31.  Chip was looking for support to propose an earlier start and stop.  Chip corrected last talk to include White Rock Club in clean up.  Greeters still to be set. List of volunteer duties to be set up.  Team breakfast for soccer clubs proposed.
 
Grant Seminar
3 of our members attended.  Two are required.  Dierdre and Jerry will be our official reps.  It was proposed Chip also be involved because of his experience.  Chip said he does not have a Rotary number as a member of our club but Jerry sais it was being pursued.  Technical requirements seem high for some areas.
 
Carved Bear
Rick has offered $200.  Jerry still hopes to get at least $400.  Value is near $1200. 
Herb, the carver and donor, is to be contacted.  Scott is considering buying it as a wedding present.
