23 members assembled on another cold morning. We welcomed Trudy Cowan from the Dr. Bob Kemp Hospice.
Happy  dollars were collected by stand-in Sergeant-at-Arms George Gould; Glen enjoyed his grandson’s 2nd birthday party, Steve was back from a trip to Turks and Caicos and told us how he had surprised his father with a painting of Taylor’s Tea Rooms which included a sign his father had painted. Roger offered to sell the whole building to Steve. Barb was glad to be back from a two month stay in her new condo in Florida while Vlad had a more realistic view of our winter and had been on a quick trip to sun in the Dominican Republic. Having reached 65 Phil was glad to report on half-price GO fares to Toronto. Shirley was happy to report that her daughter had just been awarded a Pan_AM contract.
Past President Jan Southall distributed Rotary Foundation badge stickers and encouraged members who had not yet made a foundation to make their contribution.
