Today’s meeting will be a Club Assembly. We will conduct normal business at the beginning of the session and then move into some brief “Inaugural Comments” from yours truly and a look at the upcoming “Year in Pre-View.” We will also have some interactive opportunities for members to learn something new about their fellow Rotarians.
Another topic will be where our money comes from and where it goes. This is designed to be helpful for new and veteran members alike. What’s the difference between “club” money and “foundation” money, and where does it go? Those are some of the questions we will seek to answer as well as clarify other monetary issues. Finally, there will be a brief photo report of the Sydney Conference. This will, hopefully, be of help to Mason as he looks forward to the 2015 RI Conference in Sao Paolo, Brazil, and for anyone else who may want to attend.
Also, many of you have been kind enough to ask to see photos of Australia and New Zealand — two beautiful countries. I will be kind enough to let them play at the beginning of our meeting, without commentary. A picture, after all, is worth a thousand words!
President, Rotary Club of Campbell 2014-15
