It was great to be back this week after a couple weeks of vacation and nice to see everyone again. This week was a Club Assembly. President Cheryl discussed the great success of our Membership Drive which was held at The Wamsutta Club March 25th. We had 38 attendees and 5 people who were interested in joining the club. Also, applauds went out to Alan for putting together the video and slide show for the event. President Cheryl went over some items that were approved at our monthly Board Meeting which was held on March 31st. There were several allocations which were approved at the meeting. Linda gave us a RotaFest update. Our #1 priority is selling tickets and sponsorships. Also, silent auction items and scratch tickets are needed for the success of this event. Linda would love to sell 200 tickets. This week’s Happy Dollars went towards the purchase of our scratch ticket raffle item which is a big hit that night.
