Where was everybody this morning? Even with visiting Rotarian Ellen Boyce from the Dundas club we had just 16 members.


Ellen informed us Selnick's Blinds at the corner of Governor's and Creighton Roads has given her club a number of blinds to sell as a fund raiser. If you are interested it's this Saturday. She promises good deals. Ellen also was promoting the Trevor Garwood Jones Golf Tournament on September 23 at Dundas Valley. If you are a golfer there is still room. Both Ellen and Art spoke of the upcoming Ti-Cat Tail Gate Party on October 4. If you have tickets please get them sold and bring the money to the September 23 meeting. This is a significant fund raiser for our two club's share of the Eco Park project. Also, volunteers are needed for the Tail Gate Party. Go on www.clubrunner.ca/dundas and click on volunteering and drop down to the event. Use Ellen's sign in name, Ellen Boyce (note the space) and use the password dundas1, then click "book" and enter your name. Remember to click "save". Randy suggested you promote the tickets on facebook, twitter or any other electronic means you have. Art was passionate! Sell your tickets.

Jan and Bill spoke of Art in the Park this Sunday. Our community services committee will be giving $1000 to the Rotary Creekside Parkette to be built next to Amica. Jan could also use some more volunteers that day. 

Ralph thanked those who volunteered for Shredding Day on Saturday. Bob Morrow, Derek, Joe, Barbara, Bill, Wayne, David Carson and Ralph emptied enough boxes to shredded 4500 pounds of paper and sent it to recycling while making a lot of community members happy and netting just over $900 for the club. Jessica thanked Art, Alycia and Ralph for joining her at Telling Tales on Sunday. Along with financial support our club continues to have members do some sweat equity that day.

Dave Carson reminded everyone to put October 18 into their calendars. That's a work day when we build pathways and plant trees. Let him know if you are able to work.

Bob Morrow then gave a lesson on international service, one of the pillars of Rotary.
