We met today at the L A Bistro and had a continuation meeting for our Club Vision lead by our President, Sue Kowalski.



President Sue Kowalski started our meeting on time here at the L.A. Bistro:


First, few short announcements:


  • Four of our members made it to District Assembly.
  • April 13th - Dearborn Heights Club Mardi Gras Party.
  • April 20th - Adopt-a-road is active at Geddes/Sheldon Rd to Beck.
  • Backpacks are planned for the end of this Month (last meeting) to be distributed to District Conference in May.
  • May 10th-12th is District Conference - Caesars Windsor for 2019.
  • Just a reminder to let Sue know if you cannot attend for lunch (for the setup and charge).
  • We were also joined by a new potential member Visitor, Andrea Townsel, today.

Sue continued the Club Visioning process as initialized by Pat, Dean, and Ken from our previous meetings.  She distributed a review of vision listing by Focus Areas in Feb. of 2010 to refresh our memories of where we were then.  This was followed by a ten year plan proposal that covered this and new areas of focus for the club.
There was a lot of good ground to cover that included items from club size, public image, demographics, fundraising, foundation, avenues of service, and then a return to the Rotary Areas of Focus for 2019 and how we fit these with a target of 2 areas per year.  Members were encouraged to consider this and contact Sue and discuss what may be primary needs of the club today and in the future.
Sgt. Dean marshaled the club today and levied fair discipline from our members.  The 50/50 was also run by John K., but no winner today.
