Happy Bucks
Rosemary charmed her way around the table collecting loonies and tales of our happiness, gratitude and well-being.
Hector deftly (what? No, not deafly!) handled the 50/50 draw. Mack had the winning ticket, but came up Jokerless. According to Sam, the pot sits very close to $416.
Presentation on RYLA 2017
Brittany Hesmer, President of the Rotaract Club of Ottawa South, and three other Rotaract members all attended RYLA in June. It was held in Washington DC, and our Rotaract Club was one of the better represented.
Britt had a great slideshow and presentation updating us on the highlights of the conference, one of which was a speech by RI President Ian Risely. He was engaging, entertaining and quite passionate about Rotary and its importance.
All attendees had a great time, made many new friends, learned more about Rotary and the value of coming together, and working together for the common good.
Britt and Joan shine their smiles after Britt’s presentation to the Club.
Sam enjoys(?!) birthday wishes from Allan and Gary.
President Joan ended the meeting promptly at 1:30pm.
