President Jack continued the theme of Fellowship by remarking on the good fellowship enjoyed by members who performed duties at our pop corn and candy floss booth at the Oak Bay Tea Party. He congratulated Will Carter for once more organizing and supervising a very successful event. He also noted the presence of Bill Sharlow with his two sons. Tom Lidkea played for O Canada and Mark Bedford said grace.

Installation Dinner sign-up sheet will be circulated over the next few weeks. The dinner will take place on Wednesday July 2nd at 6:30 p.m. at the Uplands Golf Course. It will be a buffet dinner with a b.b.q. - selection is steak, chicken or vegetarian (please indicate your preference). The cost is $40/person.

Will Carter reported on the success of our candy floss and popcorn booth at the Oak Bay Tea Party. We sold something like 1,300 candy floss and 300 bags of popcorn for a clear profit of $3000! But just as importantly, our members had outstanding fun, and some probably were picking candy floss out of their ears for a few days. Special thanks to everyone who served a shift including Interact and family of members and new member Bonnie Sayers, below.


Golf Tournament: The Committee had a good first meeting - thanks to those who have signed up. We still need help on the sponsorship Committee and the Volunteer Committee. Please let Lori know if you are interested. We need all Rotarians to spread the word to ensure a maximum number of players and hole sponsors. Lori will bring forms next week or you can click on the link above to download them yourselves. (Scroll to bottom of page after reading all the information.)
The Prize & Auction Committee needs help: a list will be circulated to signup for donation of golf prizes and auction items. You can choose to give a cash donation (with a charitable receipt from Eldercare) which will be used to purchase golf prizes.

Sergeant-at-Arms, Brian Lamb, congratulated Ted Harrison for working Rotary into the Colonist article on his induction into the Order of British Columbia, and then fined the rest of us for not getting a mention of Rotary into the paper. Congratulations Ted, from all of us! Joan Peggs was fined for hob nobbing with the Lieutenant-Governor; David Sills for being less productive at the Tea Party than his ten year old grandson, and finally, all those who had water glasses because someone spilled ice cubes. Larry Johnson (father of Christie Johnson) had Happy $ to congratulate the Interact Club for their magnificent efforts to support the 75 girls at the Malawi School. His Club also supports the school. Lynne Murray won the $17 draw but no more.

Guest Speaker : Sara McLaughlin

Peter Lawrie introduced Sara McLaughlin, president of the interact Club. Sara recited a long list of the club’s initiatives including raising $4500 in support of the Malawi Girls' School. The first annual Fine Art Gallery auction raised $2,000 and is deemed successful enough to continue. Sara emphasized that Interact members “have a blast” doing their projects. She also noted the help of their teacher sponsor, Steve Price, who unfortunately was unable to attend this meeting. Read Sara's Interact Report here.

To conclude the proceedings, President Jack told what many consider to be the worst Golf joke ever inflicted on a captive audience.
