November 14,2018 Meeting
Today, the meeting was near capacity with 18 Rotarians and 3 visitors. The ever popular 50/50 was dominated by Luke Kita for the $1 and split of the $12 pot.  At the same time, there was plenty of happiness throughout the room with nearly $20 in Happy Bucks.  The happiness ranged from visits with grandchildren to calls between Rotarians.

UPDATE: International Project
Melanie Phelps provided the status of the proposed new sustainable well in Nicaragua. The 2019 Calendar sales have generated over $1600 in profit thanks to all the sponsors of the calendar. In addition, Palmer High School has raised nearly $4600.  There are still 2019 calendars available. Please help in selling the remaining 250 in inventory. Even selling at $10 each can help tremendously.  Perfect for stocking stuffers.  Though there is not a set date for the construction of the well, it is anticipated the same contractor will be available, and has assisted other Rotary clubs on similar projects.  Ultimately ,the cost for the well will be nearly $60,000. $20,000 is needed, even by cooperating with other Clubs, in order to get matching grants for the remaining $40,000.
Melanie Phelps added to the good news that she will be a Treasurer in Training with Mark Trevithick, our current, tireless Treasurer. Melanie anticipates this training will get her the nod for Treasurer during the 2019-2020 elections.
I was voted to fill the current Secretary vacancy through its 2018-2019 term.  The 2019-2020 elections may require a new vote to extend another year.
There may still be a few small sized Rotary polo shirts from earlier this year. Inventory and outstanding orders will be reviewed and if any are still left we will announce. Otherwise, a new order will take place in the new year.
Gordon MacAlister lead the 4-Way Test at the end of the meeting.
Stay warm, stay safe.
