Revised Plan For One
Evening Meeting Per Month Beginning in January:
our December 4th board meeting it was decided that we should
make 2 slight revisions in our plan for one evening meeting per month.
When we asked Sharon Cravens about providing an evening meal, she said
that it would be more convenient for Fresh Ideas to provide food service
if we begin our meeting at 6:30
pm rather than 7:00 pm.

meetings to the Monday before the
last Wednesday instead of the last Monday of the month.

April and July evening meetings
will be on the 23rd, and there is no Rotary meeting at
the end of December.

and guests to attend. It was

Last year we ran short of food and beverages, so we
will be asking more members to bring chili or perhaps another kind of
soup. Any donations of items
for the silent auction would also be appreciated.
We are hoping that many of our members will organize teams, and
it would be great if we can get more participants from Boonville or
