of the year by calling on

David Maxwell to say grace
Visiting Rotarians & Guests, introduced by Tricia Timmermans:

Wendie Hogarth, Financial.
Jane Gibson was the guest of Dallas,
Duncan Malcolm & Tara Carman from the Black Press were guests of the Club;
Dr. Wolf-Dieter Schopper was a guest of Hans O.
Irene Davie was given no time to levy fines (she could have imposed a general fine of $1) so she went straight to a few happy dollars. President Tav presented $10 for “a very good week: he represented the Club at a dinner with the Mayor, then the next day whipped David Maxwell
at the Uplands and then over the week-end survived fear, cold and wet in the Swiftsure to help win his crew’s class. Tom Croft put in $5 for the five weeks he will be away.
President Tav won the draw to a resounding chorus of “boos”, but he donated the $19 back to the Club.
Will Carter still needed two volunteers for the O.B. Tea Party on Saturday night. Let’s hopoe he got them.
