Rockland Kiwanis Club Meeting Minutes for May 5, 2014
President Katie Tarbox called the meeting to order, and led in the Pledge of Allegiance. Bill Batty, Jr. offered our invocation. Guests included Carol Brown (who has a membership application in), Cheryl Feldpaush, and Triss Colburn.
Posters and post cards are available for the Erin Donovan show. The show will run 1.5 hours. We need to generate interest in the event. The annual meeting will be May 12th. The committee assignments were passed around. Feel free to sign up for a new committee. The ELIMINATE! basket went around. The Cupcake Challenge is on 05/18. There is only one competitor slot left open. Please sell tickets to the event. A sign-up sheet for the food wagon event on 05/09 (Special Olympics meet) went around. There are two open slots. Meals on Wheels: There was no one for tomorrow, so Jackie Harjula and Doc Lombardi said they would do it. On 5/13, Celia Knight and Chris Oliver will do it. The Methodist Conference Home asked us to "vote" for them in a contest to support Meals on Wheels. The Key Club returned our bell and sent a card apologizing for stealing it. The Grand Raffle committee will meet at Kinney Rentals tonight at 5pm.
