Fine Drought Continues as Tony Seeks a New Image
With rituals completed, eighteen Barre Rotarians helped themselves to a buffet of salad, soup, grilled cheese sandwiches and cake. President Liane was first on her feet proposing a fine of one-and-nine on everyone for not greeting her on her late arrival. After some brief banter, she withdrew the fine. She was then fined 25 cents for being late. Eddie then bought an advertising moment to pass out flyers regarding the vote on November 6th of the Barre Town, Barre City and Spaulding school district merger. A lively discussion followed. Karl reported that he had spoken to Bernie Allen regarding making a donation to the silent auction. He also announced that on October 20th the UVM basketball team will hold a public practice from 11:a.m.-1:00 p.m. at the Barre Auditorium. Brenda reported that clubs at Spaulding, including Interact, will be participating in a light gardening activity on Richardson Road. Tony gave a Happy Dollar for picking up Dick Shadroui and having a pleasant drive to the meeting. Eddie explained the obligations for sponsoring an exchange student including housing and financial responsibilities. Caroline gave a Happy Dollar in celebration of her daughter Lydia turning eighteen. She also announced that sixteen Annual Rotary Ball tickets have been sold.
Secretary’s Report
Susan announced that she had no report. Tom proposed a fine of one-and-nine on Susan for not having a report. Bruce came to her defense by pointing out that she deserves a medal for all the time she’s put in trying to get Bruce recognized as secretary by Club Runner and Rotary International. Fine did not pass.
Classified: A Great Addition to Barre Rotary
