                                            Oct 1st – 53 Active, Honorary 9 = 62.
Your membership committee has been very active reviewing the Classifications within our club.  We are putting together a list to send to all members to review.
We want to make sure everyone knows the Classification they have within our club.  We will also provide a list of Classifications for all to use for the future.  We are also at putting together a list of Classifications to pursue. 
As a club we are looking to take up the Challenge that RI President Shekhar Mehtas has given all Rotary Clubs and that is to increase membership this Rotary year.  We can accomplish this by; “Each One Bring One”.  We want all members to do their best to keep their eyes on people you believe would be a great addition to our club.
Your membership committee is also looking at our name badges and looking to  replace them. 
A message from your Board of Directors:
Hello Rotarians,
The Board has a few asks of you. There are now several vacancies on the Board, including Treasurer, Community Services Director, and Foundation Director. If you are willing to take on one of these positions, the Board would be happy to have you. Please contact President Natalie Garbay at for more information. 
As well, if you have any suggestions for community projects or guest speakers, please contact a Board member. 
Some great work on a Hospice Project!
Gary, Sherry, Brice and Stan worked to remove sod and dirt along a pathway at Hospice Home. Brice's Bobcat Service donated company labour and base materials. Once the Rotarians tidied up the path, Brice and his crew installed pavers to make a new pathway.
Well done Rotarians!!
