We had a visit by President Rosa Bushkhal and Alan Cooper from the Society of Women Engineers Detroit as our speakers today.

President Sue Kowalski started our meeting on time once again.

 

First, few short announcements:

 

  • March 9th is the "Dump and Donate" event at Achieve Charter Academy.  Please see Sarah if you have more questions or want to coordinate with her on the event.
  • Bill Brown had a follow up interview for his WWII service with CBS.  Stay tuned and see this link if you missed the first one.

  • District grant training is ongoing, starting this week.  Please remember to register at the District 6400 web site if you plan to go.

  • We were pleased to have DG Paul Sincock in our attendance today and he gave us an update of the District Conference plans for Caesars Windsor for 2019.  Mark your calendars for May 10th-12th.

  • The United Way is working with the Rotary on "Backpacks for Success" to support local schools in Windsor-Essex.  Please see the flyer for levels of proposed support.

President Rosa addressed the club today with a multimedia presentation that illustrated the background and current activities in SWE Detroit.  This included an update on their membership, key events and initiatives for 2019, "Girls Engineering Exploration Day", an overview of the professional development committee, and a review of their endowment scholarships.
 
The club thanked her for updating us on the activities there and Rotary Club President Susan Kowalski presented her with a $500 donation to SWE Detroit for 2019.
 
Our District Governor, Paul Sincock, also installed L A Bistro owner Souheil Johair as an honorary member of The Canton Rotary Club.  As a Club we are happy to have found a new home at L A Bistro and look forward each Monday to their hospitality and good food.
 
Ken was our Sergeant today and he presided over a $2 tax for the best story.  Our previous visiting Exchange student also won the opportunity to go for the 50/50 grand prize, but elected to take the default prize and maybe avoid possible EU taxation on his return.
