President Don Pilon led us in the Pledge of Allegiance followed by the 4-way test somewhat led by Heather Gendron.  Joe Bassett led us in the invocation and Vice President Marty Grohman was muted so we had no guests to announce.


Dates to Know/Announcements:

·        Rotaract: Mike Burman noted they do not have any plans for Earth Day – Thursday, April 22nd and we would like to participate in anything Rotaract may have planned.

·        CLYNK Bags – Help support the children attending the school in Kenya.  Let Don know if you need any bags.

·        New Members - First Posting for the following two new potential Rotarians: Jessica Muise, Executive Director of Engine, sponsored by Roland Gagne and CHCC by Bill Patterson.

·        Scholarships – Heather Gendron gave an overview of the Scholarship Program to area high schools. She gave a shout out to Paulette Bonneau for already getting the information to the school counselors ahead of schedule.

·        Maple Syrup Fundraiser – Roland Gagne reported we had sales over $11,000 (22% OVER GOAL!). The Gold Medal goes to Bill Patterson with sales of $1401 raised and Fausto at $1,388 and Joe at 1332.  Profit margin is about 47% so we generated over $5,000 net to the club.  Participation was 33 members with 141 purchases.

·        Essay Contest – Mark your calendar for this year’s event which will be held on June 9 at 6pm.


Conrad was the featured sub for SAA Joe Moreshead

Happy Dollars:

·        Bill P.– 10 happy dollars his son is getting married this Saturday.

·        Don – Congratulated Roland and a great job by everyone on the Maple Fundraiser.

·        Morgan – 5 happy dollars for the spring weather and being beautiful outside.


·        Everyone who has not given a Happy Dollar in the last 6 months – you must be awful to live with and should be fined – pay up!

·        Heather – That 4-way test was BAD!

·        Don – Gracious in giving CLYNK bags but you have been promosing Heather a nuch of bags to hand out and you haven’t yet delivered them?

·        Bill P. – Being so competitive in the fundraiser (but thank you!)

·        Morgan – Welcome Back!  Heard one of our members received some bad product from you (talk to Joe on that one!).

·        Jen – For stealing the show with your dogs

·        Conrad – Fined himself for sharing more than he should have (refer back to Morgan’s fine).

Meeting adjourned @ 1PM
