If your recall my speech at the changeover meeting. I used these 3R challenges for the Rotary Club of St. Catherines Lakeshore
Well it certainly didn't take long before the members put it into practice.
Rescheduling the Lobsterfest till next year,  to give more time to market and promote, was a wise choice with the uncertainly of the cost of lobster, etc. the committee are to be commended for all the time and effort they put in to evaluate this important project.
A report from the membership committee went out to all members notifying them of the reasons for the Boards approval of a vote on the July 26th., meeting to decide on keeping the twice monthly  meetings or going back to every week.
Everyone will have an opportunity to discuss this  important decision by email, if they are out of town,  or at the meeting where an opportunity at the end of the meeting will be set aside before taking a  vote. 
If you have any concerns, please contact me directly at
or telephone 289-668-8831
