Our meeting on 11 February 2015 was our monthly business meeting, where we receive reports on projects in progress and make decisions for the future.
Our treasurer reported that all the subscriptions were received on time and had been forwarded as required before the deadline. A draft flyer for handing out to prospective members and putting on notice boards was discussed. The wording was improved by discussion at the meeting.
For many years, the Club has provided an illustrated dictionary to primary school leavers in a selected local school. This year’s school and the leavers have been selected, and the dictionaries have been ordered from the supplier.
The Club will also be taking part in the annual Rotary Health Day on 18 April 2015, providing a free blood-pressure-check service on behalf of the Stroke, formerly known as the Stroke Association.
The Club has agreed to support a Rotary Scholar for the academic year 2015-2016 and will look forward to the decision of the Inbound Scholar Coordinator towards May-June. With our member who looks after the plastic milk-bottle-tops making a good recovery from surgery, members were asked to hold on to their collections for a little longer, or deliver them to Dick until our normal arrangement is resumed. All that, and a meal in one evening is not bad going!
