Banner Exchange
Raymond Peters (right) of Inverloch Rotary Club in Victoria, Australia exchanged banners with Jim. Raymond told a bit about his club, which is located in a seaside town on the Bass Highway, 143 kilometres southeast of Melbourne.

Announcements
Alan Jones of Saanich introduced fellow club member, Leanne Stokes, who spoke about the Plant a Seed to Read Gala Dinner and fundraiser, to be held on Saturday October 23 at the University Club. It is to support literacy, children and youth and is a joint effort of the READ Society and the Rotary Club of Saanich. Entertainment will be provided by the Esquimalt Jazz Band, the Pearson College dancers, and the band Loose Change will be there to dance to. There will also be a silent auction and a live auction. For more information visit the new Greater Victoria Rotary Clubs' blog or phone 250-721-0445.
Peter Lawrie informed that the Community Services Club would meet following the meeting today.
Jim Force announced that the Directors had approved the membership of Bill Burns. This will take effect after a seven-day notification period.
Jim also reminded us of the Club in a Pub meeting on Thursday at the Penny Farthing Pub on Oak Bay Avenue.

Happy/Sad $$$
Joe, who hit a deer last week, had sad dollars again for hitting a moose when up in Alaska on his honeymoon - it happened somewhere near Tok. He lost his windshield, so they were five angry dollars! Jim had $$$$ for his daughter's 40th birthday, and David Philip's son's putter (he sells them) was used to win 11.25 million, so that was cause for some happy $$. Tom had 72 cents for a happy time in Europe, and Neil had the happy thought that if we raffled Heather's car, it could be an excellent fundraiser.

Peters

Jim Force (above) was in fine form leading the meeting in the absence of President John, who is holidaying in Vienna. We were treated to a rousing O Canada, with Tom Lidkea (back from holidays in Europe) on the piano. John Jordan gave a beautiful Grace, in which he asked us to give gratitude, and to ask ourselves how much of what we have is meant for us, and how much was meant to pass on to others. Lunch consisted of bread, beans, lettuce and pasta and the usual dessert of cookies with canned peaches!

Discussion group1

Jim did a little table arranging of all present at the meeting, then the Directors did musical tables, moving around the room with sets of questions dealing with membership, how funds should be allocated - locally v. internationally, and much more, which brought about some lively discussion for about 25 minutes. As the reports are not yet to hand, the results of the discussion will be revealed in a future edition of the bulletin.

CELEBRATIONS MASTER

Past President Heather did a repeat performance as Femme Fatale Fines' Fanatic and raked in probably as much as she did last week. First up she fined herself for utter disorganization re the $$ last week - who would have known - so she gets top marks for honesty. She fined Leslie for not having arranged to have collectors scurrying about. Peter L. was the Phantom Shaker, so those of us who missed his happy hands paid up. Tom paid for our having to miss his piano playing for too long, Anne Sims paid up for something about Heather's car being shamelessly advertised??, and Lynne was fined for speaking out of turn.

 Bill Burns was welcomed to the club with a fine, and Heather paid up yet again for having fellow members be her servants (she didn't reveal who). Those who had never been to a Pub in the Club (or is it Club in a Pub) paid - so don't miss today's get-together! Joe Prentice refused to pay up twice for getting married, and Lynne and Dallas were fined for inviting Heather to too many parties. You had to be there!
