Rockland Kiwanis Meeting Minutes for January 7, 2013
President Amy Pease called the meeting to order and led in the Pledge of Allegiance. Bill Batty, Jr. offered our invocation. Guests included Broo Temple and Bill Packard (who have their applications turned in) and speaker Lew Collins.
There is a board meeting on Wednesday the 16th at 7:30am.
We are hosting a Business After Hours in conjunction with Rock Harbor on the 9th from 5-7pm. Many members are planning on attending. We received a thank-you letter for our ELIMINATE! donation. Christmas tree sales: There's no exact accounting yet, but about 70 trees (or about $2000 worth) were left over. Jaap also announced he wouldn't be able to chair the committee next year. Meals On Wheels: Carol Kelley stepped in at the last minute to cover tomorrow's delivery. The 22nd is also open.

Speaker: Lew Collins is the superintendent for RSU #13, and had a substantial packet of information for attendees. He spent most of the time, though, fielding questions from the audience.
From your Spiritual Aims committee:
“Most of us end up with no more than five or six people who remember us. Teachers have thousands of people who remember them for the rest of their lives.”
Come join us any Monday at noon at The Samoset. We'd love to see you. Come share in the fun and laughter.
