Mark reported recommendations for next year for the Discovery Tour Committee to consider. These included marketing, ticket cost, posters, incorporation of winning photo in brochure, and logo.
Barb warned us that there may be questions as a result of promotional material from Wild Flower Farm that assumed that the “St Thomas Rotary Club” they named, which refers to RCRC, was our club. The brochure reported that “St Thomas Rotary Club” received some revenue from parking control. The farm charged a set amount for parking which was not determined by Rotary.
Trish has signup for Horton Christmas market Sat 20Nov21. Contact her to fill the 3:30 to 5:00 p.m. time slot. We should wear a Christmas Hat.
Saturday 27Nov21, 12 noon we are setting up the Christmas Lights at Splash Pad, Pinafore Park. Scott Carrie from RCRC has generator and lights. Look forward to some fun.
November is Foundation month which matched the next item of business, the Rotary Club of St Thomas Foundation AGM.
Barb won the 50/50. As fine master, she asked “How many districts are there in RI?” No one guessed 535. What is the highest award given by RI and who from our club won the award? No one guessed Service Above Self or our founding President Frank Sanders. How many countries are represented internationally? No one guessed 220? What is our current motto? No one guessed “Serve to Change lives”. It was a good haul.
Happy Finns:
Trish – Mother Kathryn’s birthday, kudos to club volunteers who kept our involvement with this summer’s Horton Market alive and well including Trudy, Mark, Gerry and Adriana along with anyone else who helped.
Mark – Trudy’s work in so many aspects of Rotary. The Happy Finns go to RI and the club member and club get recognition.
Barb – Happy Finns, Trudy’s work with the Foundation is more than Barb imagined, ACT theatre group can not perform but they can party at Mary’s anyway.
Ron – Kathryn’s birthday, Trudy, Malcolm and Mark’s work
Bill – ditto on club members’ work
Nancy – ditto #2
