We would like to get as many Club members as possible to join us for our New Year's Levee! January 1, 2018 from 11 AM - 12 PM at the Rodd Charlottetown. Cash Bar. Food. It was an excellent event at the last New Year's. Please come out and support Rotary! 

All are welcome!
 
 
 
On Dec. 18th, the Club had a Mixer at the Hopyard Bar. The Mixer was well attended. We also held a Draw at the Mixer for the Westjet trip. This Draw was won by a Julie Connolly. Of the 60 tickets sold, there were only 5 tickets sold to non-Club members. Julie is a non-Club member and works at Richard & Associates - blame Peter MacDougald. Congratulations Julie!
 
 

 

 

 

 
 
New Club member, Susie Fraser, Station manager for Westjet, had recommended the Club apply for a free Trip for 2 anywhere that Westjet flies for a fundraiser. This is a program that Westjet has in order to give back to the Community. The approximate value of this trip could be as much as $2,900 retail. The Club had applied for the free trip, and was approved by Westjet. The Board has agreed to do a Lottery Raffle for the Trip. The trip voucher has an expiration date of December 31, 2018. The Ticket Price was set at $50 with only 60 tickets to be sold. Club members had first right to purchase on a first come first serve basis. Club members were allowed to buy multiple tickets.
 
I would like to thank Susie Fraser for getting us the trip, and Wes MacAleer for getting the Lottery License. Everything was done very efficiently in order to get this Fundraiser done quickly. 
 
The proceeds from the Draw will be donated to the Tears for Smiles Foundation in Haiti. This is essentially a school that is very short of funds. Club member, Susie Fraser, has been to visit this school. Since this is a fundraiser specifically target to a specific group, it is considered Restricted Funds and falls outside of our Policy for Unrestricted Funds. Because of the timeframes involved, Club approval will be sought in the New Year for the Donation to the Tears for Smiles Foundation. 
 
 
 
 

At the Dec. 19th Bingo, we were thrilled to donate $500 to 95.1 FM CFCY’s Christmas Miracle Campaign.

This project helps ensure that each and every Island child has the chance to share in the joys of the season.

Awards Policy: At the December Board meeting, the Board approved an Awards Policy for the Club. We expect to present the new Policy to the Club in January. I would like to thank Moe Rodgerson and the Committee which did an excellent job.
 
Rotaract Club Formation: We expect a Rotaract Club formation meeting to occur in January at UPEI. There was a preliminary meeting in late November. There was lots of interest in the new possible Club. Director Martin Ruben is leading this initiative. 
 
Bylaws: We expect to present new Bylaws to the Club for a vote sometime in January or February.
 
Annual General Meeting:  We expect to have an Annual General Meeting at the Jan. 15th meeting. The AGM will also involve an Election of Officers for the next fiscal year starting July 1st.
 
Strategic Plan - We are still looking for ideas of the type of Community needs that the Club can fulfill. We cannot donate all the net proceeds from the fundraising to charitable organizations. We should be looking at what we can do as a Club or would like to do. Rotary's new slogan is "Rotary People of Action". Let's see what we can do to live up to that mandate.
