  • Rebuilding Pittsburgh – Our Club has been requested to participate in rebuilding a home for a needy resident in May since the Upper St. Clair-Bethel Park Club has declined to participate this year. It was agreed that the request will be considered at an ad-hoc Club Rotary Fdn. meeting after the regular meeting.
  • Tech Awards – May 2nd has been set for this year’s Tech Awards.
  • Ray Kells
  • Easter Egg Hunt – Ray thanked all the members who participated in Saturday’s Easter Egg Hunt which was very successful. Also special thanks were noted for the USC Township’s Rec Center representative and the USC Police who helped control traffic. This year it is estimated that almost 700 children participated (compared to 350 last year). The Interact Club faculty advisor, Jack Zebo, and 4 Interact students were involved. It was noted that next year attention will be given to (1) being sure all children understand that there are tickets in some eggs which allows them to choose a stuffed animal and (2) the start of the hunt will be initiated by a police siren.
  • PF60 Proceeds Distribution – Members are invited to attend a 9 AM meeting this Saturday at Panera’s at the Galleria to decide on this year’s Pancake Festival distribution.
  • Speaker – Andrew Seay – Managing Director – Little Lake Theater – This speaker was not able to attend this evening and will be rescheduled.
