This past week, our Satellite group got together on Thursday, October 10 at Capers. Members were welcomed.  Collin Myers led the meeting.
  • Inter-Club Spelling Bee
    • Karen Baker joined us to share some details on the inter-club spelling bee
    • Looking for volunteers for various roles as well as committee members
    • There is a committee meetings scheduled for November 1 at 6 pm to be held at the Stirling Train Station (122 North Street, Stirling)
  • Hockey Night in Quinte
    • Event will be held on Friday, February 28, 2020 at the Belleville Club
    • Rather than have a sub-committee, the Satellite group will work together as a committee for this event
    • The next Satellite meeting (October 24) will be focused on the HNIQ event; feel free to come prepared with ideas for hockey-inspired games, activities as fundraising opportunities
  • Belleville Senators - Collin Myers spoke on two points
    • The BSens have approached the Satellite club to be one of the selected charitable groups to participate in their 50/50 raffles.

      • Rotary would then receive a portion of the proceeds at the end of the season
      • More to follow
    • Another opportunity that was discussed is the possibility of an event with the players for a date in March 2020
      • Event suggestions included 'celebrity bowling' where a player could join children on a bowling team or a 'breakfast with the BSens' 
      • It was also suggested that this could be a good opportunity for an inter-club event
    • Santa Claus Parade
      • Peter Malone spoke about the opportunity available to Rotary to participate in the Santa Claus Parade (Sun, Nov 17)
      • Choice between hosting a 'stop' in Riverside Park to hand out hot chocolate and/or hot cider, provided by the Chamber (depending on the route) or participating in the parade with a float
      • More details to come
