  • Herb's last meeting as President and Celebration of Service - as he would say: SHOW TIME! He gave out "Stanley Cup" trophies or award pins to his handlers (Jan, Susan, Patricia, Sarah), and to committee chairs for a job well done in a difficult year 
  • Malcolm informed us he will be the Fine-Master Delegator, with a different member playing the role of Fine-Master each week starting alphabetically with Ken. Goal is to fine a minimum of $25/week or make up the difference 
  • Vicky confirmed that hybrid meetings will continue but as Molly said "we miss your face" (and the rest of you)! Let Herb know if you can help with setting up meetings Friday mornings
  • BocceFest: All agreed with Bill that our "non-event" that raised over $40,000 was our biggest accomplishment of the year and gave a big shout-out to Charles for coordinating
  • The Rotary Foundation: Paul shared that we  hit $10,521 in annual giving and $17,400 overall, with an average of $7,700 over the last 4 years, and per capita of $363 (the District average is $170). Great job for hitting the  100% EREY (Every Rotarian Every Year) goal  again this year!
  • Membership: Vicky & Susan did a great job of bringing in 6 new members this year (Andy, Diana, Linda, Nicole, Trish, and Weilynn)
  • International: Venky highlighted the 2 District Grants we did in El Salvador, the Global Grant for homeless women in Calcutta, and the Global Grant for Anti-Human Trafficking
  • Community Service: Ken gave kudos to his committe of Bill, Charles, Lew, and  Lou, who led us in two Blood Drives, Stand Down, Rotarians at Work Day, Casa de Amistad, Hope without Boundaries, CRC holiday baskets, covid help for India, and weekly coverage for the Fairgrounds Vaccine Super-Site (more than any other club)
LobsterFest: Vicky thanked her committee members who have been working very hard on this to meet Launch Day - June 26!! Send Charlotte email addresses of friends and businesses to include in an eblast. 
  • Website: Charlotte has this up and running
  • Sponsorships: New - Andy (delusional but optomistic); Past Sponsors - Paul 
  • Auction: Herb will head and will be using TravelPledge
  • Music: Trish and her band will rock the night away
  • Marketing Material: Vicky (with Kitty McGee's help) has created a LobsterFest Letterhead, Sponsor Sheet, Auction Sheet, and Save the Date Card for all to use, and at Molly's suggestion, to post to your social media sites
And so ended our 2020-2021 Rotary Year during the Pandemic, and as Malcolm shared in this video in Shakespeare's words to Herb "You Rock"
