Todays Program

Tonight we took a few moments to discuss the good and the bad about the Spaghetti Dinner Fundraiser.  Most of those who were present for the event were able to provide feedback on the things that were successful and also those things that we need to improve on.  We, with Sherry taking the notes, are in the midst of creating an "instruction manual" that we can reference for future events.

The board of directors then had a brief board meeting.  The board agreed to have a reception to honor all of the applicants for this years Educational Achievement Awards on Thursday, May 20th.  All of our members are encouraged to be there, as this will be our time to spread the good works of Rotary.  The board also agreed to purchase the helmets for the Ferndale Bike Rodeo.
