Rotary Club of Oak Bay: Serving the Families of Oak Bay

The Meeting was called to order at 12:15 by President Vicky; she showed us a video entitled "This is Rotary".

Gary Nazar was asked to recite the Four Way Test and he proved, like other members of the Club, that he can read.

O Canada was sung a cappella and Grace was provided by Dallas Chapple. 

NEWS from the ROTARIAN
Perlman
In a one-night-only performance, violinist and polio survivor Itzhak Perlman will perform with the New York Philharmonic in New York City on December 2. Stricken with polio at the age of four, Perlman overcame great physical challenges to become one of the world's most celebrated musicians. Now, he'll help Rotary meet its greatest challenge - to eradicate polio.  

Membership Retention Tip:

Rotary clubs should list their accomplishments on their Web site, says Mike McGovern, chair of the RI Membership Development and Retention Committee. "A Rotarian recently told me that her favorite meeting was the year-end meeting at which the club president reviewed all the club had accomplished during the prior year. She felt good about being a Rotarian," he said. Check Here for our club's accomplishments.

Club Assembly:

Treasurer Brian
Brian Lamb  presented the budget which will run a $1000 deficit.  Copies are available on Club Runner.


Community Service Peter Lawrie
Peter Lawrie had a PowerPoint presentation which outlined our commitments and our opportunities for fundraising.


International Service Perry
Perry Bamji:  There is only $4000 for International Service this year and half of this is slated for Shelter Boxes. His committee will look at matching grant opportunities especially related to clean water.


Membership Force
Jim Force asked us, “What values do Rotary provide to you? And What value does your presence make to Rotary?”  We are falling short in meeting our luncheon attendance requirements.  The Club is having to pay for lunches to meet our commitment to the Rec Centre.


Public Relations GaryGary Nazar:  Our mandate: To inform members and to inform the community.

Visiting Rotarians And Guests

Introduced by Ron Cooley

John Passos, guest of Shelly Best


Sergeant-at-Arms

Fines were meted out by Leslie for: no broccoli on your plate, those that didn’t realize it was Sept. 1st, who didn’t know the new Rotary Membership slogan: "Each Rotarian: Reach One, Keep One"; and what was on the cover of the June 1920 Rotarian Magazine – A Sailboat. 

Vicky had a happy dollar for attending a relation's wedding.

From RI President John Kenny, who hails from Linlithgow, Scotland:

"September is New Generations Month – a time to focus our attention on our programs for youth and the role they play in shaping the Rotarians of tomorrow. Our youth programs – Interact, Rotaract, Rotary Youth Leadership Awards, and Rotary Youth Exchange – are some of the most important programs of Rotary. I say this because of the unparalleled potential they have to influence young minds and souls toward peace, goodwill, and harmony."
