At the regular meeting on May 3rd:
 
  • Theresa started the meeting by talking about Rotary branding. The Rotary branding on the trailer looks great. Much of the discussion revolved around what the differences are between Rotary the Lions. We came to the conclusion that the main difference is that Rotary has a larger international profile. This is something (as people ask about it) that we can keep in mind for our elevator pitches on Rotary.
  • Pache shared that he was doing some work at the Chinese Cemetery when a university group pulled up. After some chatting and Pache showing them around and sharing some of the history, the group disclosed that they would like to come to the cemetery as a class field trip in the future to use some ground-penetrating radar to document where grave sites or artifacts may be. Pache gave them his contact info and told them that we would love to have them share their findings with us. Also, the markers work is underway. There are more ideas coming forward for even more improvements -- e.g. an entrance gateway is the next stage of the project. 
  • The garage sale went well, despite the weather resulting in much less of a turn out than usual. We made $633.16, $354.00 of which was from food sales. We are hoping to do this again in the future. We think that next time we could move to a more central location that is closer to the action on Mesa Vista Drive and perhaps expand to do burgers.
  • Adam is heading up the Fun Fair on June 7th. Set-up will be at 3:00 and Adam is looking into a time for the event (we think 4:30 - 8:00ish). We are looking at doing burgers, hot dogs, taco in a cup, and nachos (with molten cheese -- aka taco goo). Pache will loan us 3 coolers, and Theresa and Cami will also bring a cooler each. Adam is going to talk to Colleen about where would be a good spot to park the Rotary trailer.
  • Regarding the Rotary trailer, on paper it looks like we were $16.16 over budget, but given what we ended up selling the other one for, and given the Public Relations grant we got, we ended up with about $1300.00 surplus from the trailer going into the general fund (i.e. we were below budget).
  • Adam is going to check in with Colleen about Yes Camp. As we have about $1600 in the general fund, we should be able to send two students this year (it costs about $650.00 to send one student to Yes Camp).
  • Karma said she would organize the Graffiti Days beer garden fundraiser as long as there were enough volunteers. So far, Gary, Theresa, Adam, Ron, Barb, and Cami have volunteered to help on that day (June 9th). The location is changing, so we will need to figure out where to go on the day of the fundraiser. So far we should have enough volunteers, but more are always welcome, especially if we want to look at giving safe rides home.
  • Adam and Theresa have joined the District Interact committee and their first meeting is on Monday at 16:00. 
  • The Harmony Project is progressing. The Village meeting went well. The structure is going to be at the entrance to the park between the blue truck and the bandstand. We are looking to have the groundwork to be done at the end of May and are optimistic about completion happening around June 21st. As such, we are throwing around an unveiling date that will be in late June/early July. 
Events on the go...
 
  • The Harmony Project will be likely unveiled this summer.
  • Fun Fair - to be held Thursday, June 7th at Desert Sands Community School - we will do our usual BBQ and stuff.  This project usually raises more than enough funds to send one student to The YES camp. Adam is heading this up.
  • Graffiti Days beer garden fundraiser will be held on Saturday, June 9th -- location TBD.
 
The next meeting on May 10th will be a regular 12:30 meeting at the River Inn.
