Rotary Last Week – May 19th

On a sad note: The membership was notified of the death of Brian Crawford’s mother, and to compound this sadness, Steve Scott’s mother passed away this last week.

They both have our deepest sympathy and prayers.

This was a business meeting.

Dave Monroe presented Michelle McKeon From the Orange County Shelter with $150 Destinta movie tickets for kids. (Destinta matches this amount.) (Good show!)

Phil Brillante – If you were feeling “ticked off” at the meeting, thank Phil. He noted that “tick” season is upon us, and he told us what to do (and what not to do) about them.

Phil passed out handy wallet size cards from the Lyme Disease foundation on combatting these dangerous insects! (Good job, Phil!)

Shelter boxes (Tsunami) contain $1800.00.
