Alan led 13 members opening the meeting at 7:10 am with O Canada and the Rotary Grace
October is Economic and Community Development Month
November is Rotary Foundation Month
Dean was welcomed as a new member. He and Cliff will schedule his induction.
Odell recounted his experience at 2 makeups with the Clarenville club in Newfoundland. One was their monthly business meeting where he shared our projects and heard about their projects. They have done significant upgrades and trails along the beaches and have a radio auction as their major fundraiser. Work was beginning on the auction. The other was a presentation by a mink farmer leading the agricultural association. Agriculture suffers from over-regulation and lack of arable land. A beekeeper in attendance has been working with 15 different government agencies for over a year to attempt to get the use of government land for her bees. A reminder that you are welcome at Rotary meetings wherever you travel.

Our in-meeting service project was stringing cloth bags and applying snaps to shields for the Days for Girls reusable hygiene kits. Destiny demonstrated the stringing and knotting process while Odell shared the snap application process. We had a very productive session that included great fellowship and storytelling.
Harry suggested Peter Zeihan as a speaker on Geo-Politics and as a commenter worth listening to. You don’t have to agree with everything he has to say but is well worth the listen or read.
