Greeter for today was Don Davidson and covering the desk was Carlotta Cisneros-Knox. George Gould was the Sergeant-At-Arms and Barbara Busing was the recorder. We were a small group today with no guests other than our guest speaker.
Happy Dollars today were from Scott who was celebrating a birthday of 39+ years. Happy Birthday Scott! Paul Clifford gave a “concern” dollar and spoke to some serious concerns with the current election. Bob Morrow contributed and noted the club was sending $2500 to Ronald McDonald House, a mix of Club Service dollars and generous donations. As well one more window needs upgrading at Ellen Osler Home: can you help? Call Bob for details. Ralph Montesanto gave a Happy Dollar for his and Barb’s participation in a recent RI Zone meeting in Providence R.I. Dave Carson reminded us of the Food Drive this Saturday AT ST MARK’s……8am for set up if you can help. Art gave a Happy Dollar after returning from a 2 month vacation including the highlight of visiting Iceland. He also plugged the Routes Scrap Drive on October 16. George Gould is back at the work he loves: working with kids. He is at Cootes Paradise Elementary until Christmas.
