Our first meeting of the Rotary Year was fun and engaging. Melissa Robinson and Chris Hawke (featured) talked to us about the upcoming Argos Youth Day which I hope to see you all participate in. On another note, members present voted to use $139 of the funds generated to support RADAR139.
 
Our next meeting we will have a number of AIDS organizations come in to discuss their work and next year’s Pokerwalk. Andrew will be presenting a check to Ower from Latinos Positivos for $502.50 for funds that we raised at the 2019 Pokerwalk.
I wanted to take a quick opportunity to share a few highlights from last night’s meeting.
  1. We had two guests attend, both brought to us by our Foundation Chair, Tess. One was a former Rotarian from Northern Alberta named Lindsay Lam. The other was named Caitlin Baker.
  2. Two new stories have been posted on our website. Feel free to share on social media.
  3. We had a short educational video on due payments. Please be advised and prepared for club invoices being sent this month
  4. We had a great round table discussion on The Rotarian and the letters sent in regarding their April issue on Climate change.
  5. We announced a $1,500 gain through our work at the Toronto Ribfest. Thank you to C.J. and Diana for doing two shifts over the weekend.
  6. Members present voted to use $139 of the funds generated to support RADAR139.
  7. Melissa Robinson and Chris Hawke (featured) talked to us about the upcoming Argos Youth Day which I hope to see you all participate in.
Upcoming Events:
  1. As most of you are aware, we are ending from our commitment to the FYFB and transitioning our role to the Rotaract Club of Danforth. In order to ensure the transition goes smoothly, I will be attending this Saturday and welcome any other TTRC members to do so as well.
  2. Our next meeting we will have a number of AIDS organizations come in to discuss their work and next year’s Pokerwalk. Andrew will be presenting a check to Ower from Latinos Positivos for $502.50 for funds that we raised at the 2019 Pokerwalk.
  3. The year end celebration is taking place this Sunday. At least two members from our club our attending. The price of a ticket is $10 so I hope more can come.
