Meeting Notes
Business meeting tonight.
Meeting Venue:  No meeting on May 25th in lieu of the Drawdown Dinner the next day on Thursday, May 26th.  The meeting the following week will be announced soon.
Application for membership received:  Tabitha O'Connor, IPD Dispatch Clerk sponsored by Kim Miranda.
Drawdown:  so far 95 tickets reserved.  60 people have purchased dinners.  Please bring in any remaining ticket and dinner monies to the event.  Dave Shaheen is still looking for donations for the prizes given to every 10th number pulled.  Any donations will help increase revenues.
Haccamo Playhouse:  The team of Bob Spatola, Lou DiPrima, and Peter Mendick completed 96.8% of the plywood installation.  Great Job!  Painting team can start whenever they are ready.  There is a clean-up at the Camp this Saturday 9am-12pm.
Camp Haccamo Car Show June 4th at Greece Ridge Mall.  See Ray Holla if you can volunteer.
Finance Report:  We have a surplus in our bank account that will be used for a larger project once it is identified and approved by the club.  All committee heads should send their request for funding for next year to President Lynn and President-Elect Kim Miranda ASAP so that it is included in the 2022/23 budget being put together now.  Lots of discussion on how we should fund our club's donations to the Rotary Foundation.  We have been contributing $100 per member for years but it has not been transparently included in the budget.  The club voted to approve the following: (1) leave annual dues at $175 ($85 RI Dues + $40 District 7120 dues + $50 Camp Haccamo donation) per person (does not include $25 for Rotary Foundation) (2) Add a line item in the budget to donate $1000 per year to Rotary Foundation for the Paul Harris Award given yearly by the club, and (3) Add a line item in the budget to donate $100 per member to the Rotary Foundation and credit each member individually.
Actions from the BOD Meeting:  (1) Approved Jessica Franco's new member project - $500 (allocated in budget)  (2) Recognized that the Playhouse expenditures will exceed the $1500 in the budget that was carried over from last year. Voted to allow project to run over budget. Project team to provide actual or estimated costs of supplies to complete planned plywood and painting phases as soon as possible.  (3) Reviewed Scholarship Committee’s request to split the unused scholarship earmarked for a Bishop Kearny High School Senior and add it to the West Irondequoit and Eastridge High School Scholarships raising the amount of each from $1300 to $1950. The board voted to keep the scholarships as budgeted. The unused scholarship should be repurposed for some other youth educational activity, preferably one that will benefit multiple students (e.g. startup costs for Interact Club)
Strategic Plan:  President Lynn has formed a committee to do a review of community needs in order to identify a larger scope project.
