Today our 22 members and one guest were welcomed by Nic Shultz and marked in by Steve Roblin. Our Sergeant-at-Arms was Ernie Romain. The meeting recorder was Jessica Brennan.
Happy Dollars: Ernie started off by listing a number of things he was happy about: his birthday, the Leafs win, the Blue Jays still being in the playoffs and the results of the Federal Election. Our guest, William Knox, was happy to be home. Bruce was ridiculously happy because his youngest daughter just got engaged with a lovely young man who actually asked Bruce for his daughter’s hand in marriage. Bruce was also happy because regardless of the election results he was happy to live in Canada and to be able to exercise his democratic rights. Wayne’s happiness was due to his birthday and golfing and having dinner with his children. George was just happy and did not elaborate. Steve was happy to have been at Game 5 of the Jays and Rangers series. Shirley was happy that there were more women at the meeting this week.
Announcements: Phil reminded everyone of the Chicken BBQ at St. Mark’s this coming Friday (October 23). Steve announced a community meeting for that evening on policing in Dundas. 
William Knox, supported by his sponsor, Carlotta Cisneros-Knox, was inducted as a member of our Rotary Club by our President, Shirley Molloy, Ralph Montesanto and Paul Clifford. Following the ceremony, William was congratulated by the membership in attendance. 
Shirley Molloy introduced our guest speaker, Scott Vance, one of our very own, who as a new member gave his Classification Talk, highlighting his figure-skating passion and career.
