ADMINISTRATION by Leslie Rogers-Warnock
This committee arrives early to set up the room for the meetings - dais, flags, cashier's equipment, and to ensure that the job roster duties are done.

INTERNATIONAL SERVICE by Perry Bamji
This committee's projects include the Malawi Girls School, Sustainable Households Rwanda Orphans, Luis Pasteur Kindergarten school improvements, Uganda Wildlife Education Centre, Rotoplast in the Philippines, plus Pakistan Disaster Aid survival packs. Among their priorities is support for Oak Bay High School Interact in their Malawi Girls School project, and start another Interact now that the age limit has been lowered to 12 years.


SOCIAL COMMITTEE by Lorna Curtis
This popular committee has organized lawn bowling, car rallies, beer tasting, James Bond party, Guess Who's Coming to Dinner, and many, many more social events.

FUNDRAISING GOVERNANCE COMMITTEE by Joan Peggs
As fundraising ideas are raised my members, this committee weighs the pros and cons and decides on the possible implementation of the idea. They ensure that community and international projects split evenly the funds raised by our Club.

FINANCES by David Sills
The year to date operating statement was distributed.
Lastly,

 

 

 

Joan Peggs was the "mistress of ceremonies" in the absence of President John Edgell. The club's paparazzi, Jack and Neil R., kept elbowing each other out of the way all through the meeting as there were many photo ops.

Effective July 1, 2011 Joan Firkins has been appointed by Rotary International to be the Zone 25 Regional Rotary Foundation Co-ordinator (RRFC). Her 'territory' will include British Columbia (Vancouver Island), Washington, Northern California, Arizona and Northern Nevada. There are only 34 RRFC's worldwide, so our heartfelt congratulations to Joan, one of our hardest working Rotarians.
Joan also reminded us about the email which we received Tuesday morning regarding contributions to the Polio Challenge the week of October 18-24 - you should be making your online donation through the following Canadian website www.trfcanada.org and NOT through the rotary.org website - making your contribution through the Canadian site will ensure you receive an official Canadian tax receipt. The purpose of this one-time offer of double point recognition is two-fold: 1) to encourage people to use the on line system (excellent turnaround time on tax receipts) and 2) to boost donations to the Polio Challenge to ensure we meet our goal of $200 million by June 30, 2012.

This meeting was Club Assembly, so members of each of the committees introduced their fellow committee members and tendered reports.

Heather Aked, our Mistress of Celebration, very likely taxed every member several times. Jack was the secret handshaker, but because he is gregarious, most of us avoided the fine for not shaking his hand. Heather herself was fined for hugging Jack instead of shaking his hand!

A reminder that John Jordan is collecting head-scarves, watches, handheld calculators and eye glasses to take to Rwanda. Bring them to the next meeting.

COMMUNITY SERVICES by Peter Lawrie
Priorities are Water Park, Memory Cafe, Interact support, Youth Leadership, Literacy.
This committee raises money, and their best projects are Oak Bay Tea Party, Beverage Tasting, Christmas Concert (new this year), Tuscan Dinner (new last year), and Thrifty Foods Smile Cards.
