We met today at the L A Bistro and heard an update on the Boy Scouts and Eagle Scouts by fellow Rotarian Charles Lang.

 

President Sue Kowalski started our meeting on time and we settled in to the new home of the Canton Rotary Club.

 

First, few short announcements:

 
  • The following link is active for the "Dump and Donate" event on March 9th.  Check out the details at the link.

  • Feb. 16th is our 5th annual Youth Exchange Bowling event from 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm at Plymouth Plaza Lanes.  Members are encouraged to attend.  Save a spot in your Winter weekend for some easy going bowling, pizza, and fun.  Please see John K. or Ansel if you need some info.  We are hoping to have no snow this time.

  • Please keep May 10th -12th of 2019 on your Radar - The Next District Conference is in Windsor at Caesars - Friday (night) / Saturday / return Sunday.  Again at popular request this is super affordable for 2 at $1050 for this location right across the Detroit river in Windsor.

  • We had a quorum today and confirmed the following Board of Directors for the Canton Foundation: Ken, Bill B., Bill S., Larry, Ansel, Sarah, and John K.

  • Bill Brown may have a follow up interview for his WWII service with CBS.  See this link if you missed the first one.  It was very well done and on Eye on Detroit (CBS).

  • The Salvation army bell ringing we did this winter netted $485 for the work of the Salvation Army.  Thank you for setting this up Lisa.

 
Charles Lang gave the club an update on the Boy and Eagle Scouts and the club presented him a check for $600 to support six Canton Eagle Scouts at the Building Character Dinner which is a Recognition and Mentor Dinner on Feb. 26th to recognize those youth who have achieved the rank of Eagle Scout, Summit or Quartermaster.  More information and even registration is here.
