  • We are in the black on Lacy J. Dalton. Volunteer hours are 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 a.m. Concert hours are 2:00 – 5:00 p.m.
  • Thursday meetings- It’s going well and Mike has received positive feedback. One of the questions we discussed was should we go to two evening meetings and two morning meetings? Many people liked trying to 2 and 2. There is a suggestion to have a trial for 2 and 2 (3 months). Here’s our count: Keep it as is- 5 Rotarians (4 morning and 2 evenings0. Go to 2 morning and 2- 13 Rotarians. Drop 1-2 mornings - 3 (evening and 2 morning). Schedule is TBD.
 
Drawing: Mary, won and amazing $5 (no joker!).
