Notes from Meeting
Don led the singing of "O Canada" and also provided the invocation.
The Rotary Minute from Jerry focused on the Addis Ababa Club in Ethiopia. The club has about 30 members and was formed in 1993.  Recently  they raised funds to purchase a Fire Engine for a remoter community.  As well, there are 3 Rotaract clubs actively involved with the Rotary there.  Supported as well by the Orthodox Church.
Pat congratulated all that were involved with the Ready, Steady, GO night on Saturday Oct 28.  In particular, Deirdre and Roberta's contributions were noted.  The event raised close to $4,000 after expenses.  GREAT WORK.
The Foundation Dinner is on November 18 at Newlands. Cost is $85 per person.  The Rotary website has the details.
Rick proposed the Hereon Chinese Restaurant located 1711 152 Street for the November 15 social.
The club will need to decide on the level of sponsorship that we will give to the Learning Center to
(1) send students to Adventures in Leadership at Camp Alexander ($310 per student) 
(2) send students to Ottawa for Youth Adventures in Citizenship ($1,000 per student)
Jeff will provide a review of our funds available to support these at the December 8 meeting.
After a brief discussion regarding Carlos membership, Don agreed to meet with Carlos to clarify the issue.  
Don reminded members about the availability of Save On Food cards.
Pat suggested that the club should further our plans to have a get together inviting previous and honorary members, at no cost to these people.  The goal is to work on increasing membership in our club.
Pat closed by proposing Jerry Zdril as the next club president.
