Presentation: Billy introduced our guest speakers: Mary Carlson and Wendy Cullinan who are involved with a committee to do a cape wide Rotary initiative with Habitat for Humanity.
 
Mary noted that Brad Boyd (Harwich) has taken on the lead with the initiative. She belongs to a small club also and thinks it would be good for clubs to partner.
 
Wendy is the Director of Human Development. Habitat has built 127 homes on Cape. She explained that home owners have to participate in 250 hours (per adult) in the building of the home. Buyers are given some budget training and they team with mentors. Mortgage usually $140,000 and payments are usually $650-$700 per month.
Volunteers who are committed volunteer twice a week.
She noted that all families except for 5 are still in their homes. If a family chooses to sell, it must be sold at affordable home price.
Land is acquired through community grant funds. They receive no funding from Habitat International.
They have re-stores in Falmouth and Yarmouth. Their staff (main office) is not as diverse as it could be. They have 8 full time and 1 part time employees.
 
Mary noted that all Rotary clubs should be involved with matching grants and a build day. Their goal is $100,000 and outreach to builders for donations. They are hoping to reach out to the Shelter from Storm Concert (Larry Brown) and others. It was suggested that they also partner with the Symphony and partner with the Melody Tent.
 
President Randy thanked Mary and Wendy for their presentation.
 
50/50 Raffle: $306 in pot Nefertiti won but got the 5 of Clubs and was given a consolation prize scratch ticket.
 
Meeting was adjourned with the singing of the closing song and ringing of the bell by President Randy.
 
Next meeting: June 18th. Jack was scheduled to do the Words of Wisdom but, Norman offered to do it as he has a story. We will re-schedule Jack :-)
 
Reminder: Please contact Kathy for speaker date availability and then contact your potential speakers to confirm.

Announcements/Business
  • Installation of Officers: Jack will be unable to fill the position of President but, has offered to stay on as treasurer. Billy offered to take the presidency as he has already done pre-PETS and PETS. Vote was taken and approved for Billy to be President 2018-2019Kathy will update the roster and send it out.
  • Meeting Venue: Billy, Norman and Randy have checked out Cape Space on Independence Drive as a possible venue to hold our meetings. Although we have enjoyed our time at the College, the cost of being there has been draining our finances. It is also difficult for those with disabilities to climb the hill and 2 sets of steps. The Cape Space is flexible and includes coffee. Refreshments will need to be purchased on a weekly basis and brought in. we may be able to work out a deal with Panera or Dunkin Donuts. You would be able to bring in your own breakfast food but, we would need to have something available for guests. We have paid the College through the end of June and could move into Cape Space on July 2, 2018. It was agreed by those present to make the move. Thanks were given to John Cox for all his help in getting us a space on campus and for the cooperation of the cafeteria and facilities staff. Cape Space is located behind Rogers & Gray. Billy reminded those present that members would have to commit to bringing in the refreshments. Vote was taken and approved for Barnstable Sunrise Rotary Club to move to Cape Space on July 2, 2018.
  • Speakers: If you have a potential speaker, contact Kathy for an open date and then follow up with the potential speaker. Billy will have Mary Carlson from Bourne-Sandwich club on June 11th to discuss cape wide Rotary initiative on Habitat for Humanity. Kathy will contact Wylton regarding the 3 potential speakers he spoke to previously.
  • President Randy has attempted several times to reach out to Kelly and has not had any response.
  • Amy Wyman-Good Grief Project: Contacted Billy and Kathy. She has been successful in setting up locations and asks for our support. After discussing what we could do, it was decided to send her $375 which is half of the full amount.
  • Billy noted that he would do the Installation on July 2, our first meeting at Cape Space. Norm noted that he still has the Paul Harris pin for Muriel Glantz. It was decided that a few members would take her to dinner and present the pin at that time.
  • Words of Wisdom – a few dates were filled in for upcoming meetings however, we need to get people signed up for July and August. Please contact Kathy with your availability to do the Words of Wisdom. Christina is signed up for June 25th.
  • Dues: DUES ARE DUE before the end of June. Please make check payable to Barnstable Sunrise Rotary Club in the amount of $125.00 and get it to Jack as soon as possible.
