Bill Armstrong greeted everyone and Bob Neibert took attendance. Ernie Romain was Sergeant-at-Arms. The meeting recorder was Jessica Brennan.
We all welcomed Randy Abel with hugs; very glad to see him following the difficult time he and his family have been through with the passing of his daughter and the recent fire at his house. Randy thanked everyone for their support, thoughts and wishes in the loss of his daughter, Lindsey. He also gave the members an update on the impact of the house fire. 

Happy Dollars: Jessica gave Happy Dollars to celebrate her sister, Marion’s, 66th birthday and the 95th anniversary of her father’s birth. Wayne was happy that he, Ralph and their wives had attended a Rotary Foundation dinner.  Scott was happy to report that his daughter has received honours two years in a row at Dundas Valley Secondary School, noting her 98% in History. Former History teachers Ernie and Art were pleased. George’s son received an excellence award in tutoring from University of Waterloo, named after Sir Sandford Fleming. Keeping on the history theme, Ernie gave George a pop quiz on Fleming. He was remembered as the inventor of Standard Time and retroactively promoted to Prime Minister. Shirley was happy because she’s always happy.
Appreciation: As it was her last day, we took a moment to thank, Cathy, for her service and support over the many months in attending to our breakfast meeting needs.
Announcements: Wayne presented recognition to Bob N. and Shirley from the Rotary Foundation for our club’s achievement in “every Rotarian, every year”. Bob N. reminded everyone that November is Rotary Foundation month and that donations can be made easily online. He also reminded everyone of our club’s Paul Harris dinner later this month on the 24th. Ken took us on the “long and windy road” to his and the club’s attempts to transfer money for one of our projects.
Mieke received a pin in recognition for her recruitment of our new member, Don.
Our club President, Shirley Molloy, then led us through a series of vignettes outlining Canada’s involvement in the wars of the last century as we observed Remembrance Day.
