Today was a Business Meeting
Regarding finances, we are spending money faster than we are making it, so we need to raise some funds to replenish the account.
There is room and need for Rotarians on the board. About 1/2 club is on the board. R Jeff W asked if it would make sense to make the whole club the board?
Club Service - R Murray advised that Fishing Derby will be May 4 and 5. He will start organizing shortly for the weigh station.
Auction organization will begin after the Valentine Dance.

International - R Clay reported that the Homeless Hospice in Mexico was off the table, therefore, the $1,000 committed was redirected to the Brazilian project for the garbage workers.

R Mark suggested that past RI Pres Wilf Wilkinson and Dr. Bob Scott may be helpful in this project.
