The kick-off meeting of the 2022 Mini Golf Committee will be May 31 at 5 pm. The meeting will begin with a short social and then to business. If you are willing to serve on this committee along with myself and several other Rotarians who have already committed, please let me know. We need the help.
The Lunch Club is in the process of planning a Rotary Festival which will be open to the community. The event is scheduled for May 21 at Celebration Park. The Lunch Club is asking the other clubs in the area to attend and perhaps furnish some volunteers to assist in setting up and serving hot dogs, soft drinks, etc. Attendance is free. More information to follow.
At this week’s meeting we will be presenting Paul Harris Pins to Harold Mason, General manager at Pirates Island, and Jodi Levitt (PH + 3) Executive Director of the Children’s Center.
May 30 is Memorial Day and it is on Monday. We will ask the members attending this week if we wish to meet on Memorial Day.
Our guest speaker this week is Quinn Monahan from USCB. See his biography below.
