We are all invited to Deirdre and Brian’s to watch the fireworks on July 1.
 
SERGEANT 
Scott got to perform for the first time in quite awhile.  Stuart explained his absence in Britain, San Francisco and the West Coast.  Rick was in Toronto where he golfed and listened to a Cougar Party.  Peter’s wife had a birthday and Peter’s son phoned to say he was now sleeping with an old lady.  The sergeant asked how many years ago that call came in!  Jerry and Roberta travelled in P.E.I. where they did not see it all.  They also hiked and fed mosquitoes.  Scott is going fishing and hopes mosquitoes will not be too bad.  Rick congratulated Deirdre on the Irish event last night.  Pat paid for the installation night.  Renee is hosting a big dinner on July 1.  (None of us are invited)  She also gave thanks for the Rotarian of the Year award. Joanne’s daughter graduated with top academic awards.
 
PADS FUNDING  Following Pat’s e mail vote there was considerable discussion which cleared up some misunderstandings and resulted in motions to pay PADS both the $5000 and the balance excluding our 10%.  These motions carried.  Brian and Deirdre will get a visit explaining all this to them.  We still hope to have a representative from PADS and PAN at a meeting to turn over cheques.
