We have two meetings to cover in this edition.
 
This past week, our Satellite group got together on Thursday, July 4 at Cassandra Bonn's home. It was the perfect day to have a meeting by the pool and Rotary members in attendance enjoyed a lovely meal of potluck dishes. 
 
Members were welcomed.  Coreen Reynolds led the meeting.
 
  • Collin Meyers gave an update on RLK.
    • Volunteer spots have filled up although we still need two people to buss tables from 1730 - 2030 as well as two people to clear glasses from 2000 - 2300 and some to help set up on Friday afternoon at Signal.
    • Silent auction continues to grow. Have seen great support from previous donors and we have added a few new donors to our list. Peter is in talks with potential new donors as well.
    • Discussion around what the Satellite group will contribute. Support for members making a $10-20 donation (etransfer to Collin or bring cash to the next meeting); money will be used to acquire a silent auction item that will have a better return.
  • Peter gave an update on Waterfront
    • All volunteer spots have been filled except for Saturday evening (July 13) from 1830-2215 --> need two spots filled for this time slot
