Minutes of the June 13th meeting
 
Sunday, June 10, President Paul S and DGE Frank Adamson attended Youth Exchange luncheon. After 4 years, this was Mike Taylor's final year as Chair of District Youth Committee.  He was presented with his very own Canadian Red outbound jacket, a memory book scrapped by the kids and a Paul Harris award. Well done, Mike!
 
Monday, June 18 Board Meeting at President Paul's, 785 Sawmill Rd 7:00pm.  Rotary beer and wine will be served.  All are welcome to attend.
 
Cluster Grant, Rotarian Mel and DGE Frank A met with Leo Johnson, who was our guest speaker last week.  Leo touched us all with his refugee journey from Liberia to Canada and creating youth education program, Empowerment Squared in Hamilton.  He is in fundraising mode to build and manage the first library in Liberia.  Feasibility study has been completed and first phase completion is scheduled for March 2020. Mel suggested to the membership that we present this idea to the Cluster Grant Committee in September.  Motion made by Rotarian Hugh and seconded by Rotarian Roy with all in favour.

Volunteers are required to attend a mandatory training session at Town Hall from 4:30-5:30 on Tuesday, July 31. Message Roy directly if you are available.  Town will pay us $500 for our time.
 
Canada Day, Rotarian Lance announced that he still needs some volunteer help for the stations, in order to cover our insurance liability.
