We welcomed Carlota Cisneros Knox once again. Carlota is interested in becoming a Rotarian and is a guest of Grant Armstrong. Sergeant-At-Arms Bruce started off by congratulating the shredding volunteers for another successful event. It is a day that provides a service to the community and makes money for the club. Happy dollars from Stephen with the birth of his daughter Louise. All is well in the family of three and Stephen now has a bigger work load. Jessica reported that her son has recovered from his fall down the stairs and the ensuing concussion. Shirley was pleased to be at the meeting with no meds. Yeah. No back pain! And Bruce's grandson turned 2 today.
Glen asked for confirmation regarding actual lobster rib fest ticket sales. Please let him now how many tickets are confirmed and how many are not. Today if possible. He also suggested that for the next two weeks rather than a happy dollar members contribute a bottle of wine for the draw. Paul thanked the club for its ad in the HARRRP Dancing on Sunshine booklet. He also thanked Carl for the Aligned Capital Partners Inc. ad. Bill thanked donators for auction items for the lobster rib fest and asked for more. The auction raises significant funds during the event. Harold asked for more volunteers for the event. Please let him know what you, your family or friends would like to do.
This Sunday is the Victoria Day Fireworks. We expect close to 12 000 in attendance and need a full complement of volunteers. Let Steve Roblin know if you can work. We need folks just about everywhere - at the gate collecting donations, for security, for collections, etc. 
Ralph held a draw this morning for Rotary hats. The winners were Ken, Bob Morrow and Wayne.
Jan gave Rotary Foundation stickers to Stephen (he left to take care of the children), Ross and Carl. She also reminded those members who have yet to donate to The Rotary Foundation to do so before the end of the Rotary year so that our club can be named as an Every Rotarian Every Year club. Even $10 will do. Every single member has to contribute for this to happen. We missed it last year.
Bob Morrow our assistant governor informed us that at the Waterdown Rotary Club's Paul Harris Dinner our very own Jan Southall received an award for the work she has done each year with their Rib Fest. He then took the podium as guest speaker talking about Rotary connections.
