Alternatives to Annual Rotary Ball Likely
With rituals completed, fourteen Barre Rotarians and two guests helped themselves to a buffet of soup, sandwiches, chips and cookie-cakes. President Liane took the floor to discuss the Annual Rotary Ball. She reported that, through generous donations from businesses and individuals, most of the major expenses will be covered. She also talked about the work effort versus the funds raised and announced that she would not be heading up the project next year and recommended that we sponsor alternative fund raisers. She called on Caroline to explain fund raising for the mural wall which took considerable less effort. President Liane noted that there was not the energy put forth for the event to warrant its continuance.
A Mixture of Happy and Sad Dollars and Fines
Tony rose to his feet and proposed a fine of one-and-nine on Eddie for not looking at the flag during the singing of America the Beautiful. Eddie defended himself by claiming that he had great peripheral vision. Joe came to Eddie’s defense by asking was Eddie looking at the flag during the pledge which he was. Tony’s fine was characterized as calling Eddie unpatriotic which Tony vehemently denied. Fine did not pass. George gave two Happy Dollars for sign carrying. He made a sign to commemorate Polio Awareness Day and walked through the Berlin Mall. He was approached by the Mall Manager who told him that he had received a complaint that he was soliciting. In fact, he was just providing awareness and information. On his visit to his sister at Windridge, he held the sign sideways. John proposed a fine of one-and-nine on Tony for whining and then tacked on 50 cents when he noted that Tony’s defense was more whining. Both amendment and fine passed. Doug offered a Sad Dollar because it’s his last meeting with us and a Happy Dollar because he will be at a meeting of his home club in Bon Air, Virginia next Friday. Eddie introduced his guest Denise Lavelle. The group then dispersed with flyers to inform citizens of Barre about polio and the efforts to eradicate it.
Until next time, that's all folks......
