We enjoyed another guest speaker this past meeting with information shared about the Nassau Public Library by Kristine Moxon. The programs for children and adults are very good at the library. A special thanks to Pat Bailey for sponsoring our speaker. We also made a donation of $200 to support the reading initiatives at the library.
This week Bill Dowd will present the program, a PowerPoint presentation on the Kennedy Space Center. We also are scheduled to report out on our committee work toward our club goals. Committee chairs are asked to meet with committee members in advance and share information on the progress of their committees. The reports should be a brief update to our membership. Thanks in advance for your work.
We are making progress with the Shelter Box initiative of three boxes. We have commitments for all three. The third is a shared process with several members participating in the $1,000 cost. See Murray if you would like to be part of this box. He indicates we only need $200 to complete the $1,000 goal for the third box.
I still need names of prospective members for our dinner in late November. Please get me the name(s) of a prospective member(s) so we can invite them to a Rotary meeting.
