Meeting Notes
Independence Day was a success! Dan placed American flags at the lighthouse garden, and members who walked in the parade threw eighty-three pounds of candy; and even though the float opted not to participate in the parade, Uncle Sam stood up to the plate. Thank you, Kim, for driving Uncle Sam to the parade!
The General's Service at Arlington National Cemetery was powerful and dignified for a great man with many honors. Members in attendance witnessed a 13 cannon salute and a 21 gun salute to commemorate Norb's years of service.
Ken attended the district changeover dinner and returned with the club's honors! Our Rotary club got first place in Best Rotary Club Website, second place in Best Rotary Facebook, and an additional award for 100 percent member involvement - congratulations to the club on all of your hard work!
Committee reports included updates on the Playhouse and National Night Out.
The playhouse will be ready for the second week of campers! Kim hired a painter (Pete Ready, Price Right Painting) to paint the outside of the playhouse white. The club has the option to add to it in the future - the finish line is in sight!
National Night Out will take place on Wednesday, August 3rd. Louis requests an assistant chair because the date coincides with his daughter's due date! If you are willing to volunteer for this job, please get in touch with Louis. Currently, 100 balloons and flyers have been prepared, requesting two tables and eight seats. Volunteers should aim to come at about 4:45 pm on the day of the event.
The Cancer Support Center meeting on July 20th and the first board meeting with Kim Miranda as president on Tuesday, July 12th were both mentioned during the discussion of forthcoming meetings.
Please let Kim know if you want to attend the Cancer Support Center meeting. The Center will present an agenda and an explanation of the cancer center. Kim will collect payments for the gluten-free dinner on Wednesday, July 13th.
Conclusionally, the first board meeting on Tuesday will include a discussion of the budget, bylaws proposals, and other ideas members submitted at previous meetings.
Program Notes

Sharon Lansing from the Parkside Neighborhood Association presented to Rotary last Wednesday. The association is nestled between Seneca Park and St. Paul Boulevard and is named after the Parkside school, which once stood near the end of Hunt Lane. The area offers a wide array of housing styles due to its varied development pattern. The neighborhood is also home to one of the Town’s most historic properties, the Hosea Rogers house, which has stood on St. Paul Boulevard, complete with its boat-anchor hitching post since 1851.

Sharon proposed to the club about placing a Little Library at the intersection of Amerige Park and Winona Blvd. The Parkside committee requests the library be purchased and registered through the Little Free Library (LFL). Doing so provides the ability to have access to free and discounted books! The club will discuss this at the next business meeting. 

Multiple contributions for:  Drive-by donation! He knew what Rotary was and donated. Sharon Lansing from Parkside Neighborhood Association, Norb's funeral at Allington Cemetary, the "Diprima family line," the 4th of July parade - Peter wants to host a party at his house next year! More contributions for the install dinner, outgoing/incoming president,
"50 cents for a great finish, 50 cents for a great start", mulching at the Lighthouse, the Sunset House, the Paul Harris Foundation, the foundation, Rotary awards from the District Changeover dinner, for Jennie receiving Women of Distinction from the Italian American Club and for the Angels of Mercy's successful chicken barbeque, Bj ringing the bell for the end of her treatment! And lastly, Kim's first meeting as president!
