Rockland Kiwanis Club Meeting Minutes for June 16, 2014
President Katie Tarbox called the meeting to order and led in the Pledge of Allegiance. Bill Batty, Jr. read a section of a Psalm for our invocation. Guests included Carol Brown, Hayde and Leefe Temple, Brett Adams from the Human Resource Society, Stephanie from the Knox County Homeless Coalition, and our speaker Audrey Lovering.
There is a board meeting this Wednesday at 7:30am. We received a thank you letter from one of our scholarship recipients. We also received a letter from the Special Olympics, and President Tarbox circulated the recent letter to the editor about the Children's Museum event. A sign up sheet went around for the two food wagon events this weekend: the Relay for Life Friday night, and the Summer Solstice on Saturday night. The Friday event still needs volunteers. We presented a check for $1413.00, the proceeds from the Cupcake Challenge, to the Knox County Homeless Coalition for use at Hospitality House. The Augusta, Pittsfield, Waldo County, and Rockland Kiwanis Clubs were represented at Lanton Lee's training last week. It was a very successful training event. The next Kiwanis training will be in Warwick RI.
