Announcements:

Will Carter is still looking for every member who can to sign on for a shift at the Oak Bay Tea Party just over a week away on June 2 and 3rd. We need everyone who can to sign on for at least one shift and see if they can also bring a family member or two to help. Contact Will at baywood@shawcable.com to determine his needs and volunteer for one or two shifts so we have this fundraiser and Rotary profile builder properly staffed.
Jack Petrie once again urged everyone to volunteer for a committee next year. He also indicated that next Tuesday we will be hearing from 4 of our female members who will be doing Vocational talks.

Adoption of New Bylaw

Vicky Pitt has done a great deal of work in preparing updates to our Bylaws and had copies of the revisions which resulted from the initial drafts circulated by Leslie a couple of weeks ago and then some slight changes resulting from feedback received. Vicky went through the changes and proposed the following motion, seconded by Jack Petrie:

That the Bylaws of the Rotary Club of Oak Bay be amended by rescinding the current Bylaws and replacing them with the set of Bylaws presented at the meeting today”.
The motion was carried by an overwhelming majority.
(Ed. Note: I have been assured that in due course the final adopted version will be made available on the internet via our secretary.)

A banner exchange took place where the Inbound Exchange Student guest of Carl Jackson (Mauricio Mendoza) presented the club with a banner from his host club in Chile (Rotary Club Talca, District 4340, founded in 1927).

President Tav reminded everyone that the regular club meeting on June 26 will switch to an evening meeting at the Uplands Golf Course again this year and where the Induction of next year’s Board will take place. Sign-up sheet available soon.

Jan Stirling, Hilary Beckett, and David Augustin enjoying a joke after the show -
thanks for a top-rate performance!

Our meeting finished up with some great music provided by Hilary Beckett singing 4 songs, “Heatwave”, “How Sweet it is to be loved by You”, “Heard it through the Grapevine” and finally, “My Girl”. Hilary who also looks after our food needs each week at the Rec Centre, was accompanied by our own Jan Stirling as well as David Augustin. The trio was thanked after their enjoyable performance by Barry Mutter who has followed Hilary’s singing career for many years.
