We welcomed Jackson Palmer, Stephen's son, and Carlota to this morning's meeting. Ralph presented Stephen with a special Rotary pin to acknowledge his sponsorship for Steve Roblin. SAA Bruce reviewed a Netflix and dentist flick tooth by tooth.
Happy dollars from Barb who was glad to be back from Florida (ya, right!), from Glen for the big push on wine for the draw and from David Carson who now has a big garden of his own to tend.
Ralph introduced Phil who was proud to be named to the McMaster Alumni Society. He will be the 22nd person so inducted. Go to http://dailynews.mcmaster.ca/article/alumni-association-welcomes-phil-wood-with-honorary-membership/ for the full story.
Jackson Palmer will be off to Disney with his grandparents; and, Joe and Paul are celebrating birthdays.
Alycia was looking for help with giving awards in June to the elementary schools. Let her know if you could help. Bob Morrow will cover Dundas Valley Secondary School to present the Ken Turner Award. Alycia is also looking for drivers to transport RYLA students to Fredonia NY on June 14 and pick them up a week later. This is a significant drive; so, two different drivers would lessen the burden.
Steve Roblin asked, after the meeting, to send members information about Telling Tales. This will come as a separate article. And, the last four Rotary hats were given to ticket winners.
SAA Bruce then introduced Paul Clifford who spoke on a new project he is championing called Homeward Bound. Once again, when Paul took the podium he exemplified what it means to be a Rotarian!
