   The Kittery Rotary After Hours Club has invited all of us to join them on their July 11 Meeting

     at their new location.



       Kittery Block Party: Our Rotary Booth will host the S2S/Interact Club whoi will be showcasing their activities and raising funds for a future trip. We will set up the canopy and tables. The tent will be across from the Library Annex and next to the Wildlife Center tent, with the banner below posted at the rear.




Welcome back from the Rotary International Conference in Hamburg Germany Pam and Andy. They are already signed up for the next International Conference in Hawaii. Lots of adventures, they will share some at possibly our July 9th Meeting. DGE Andy also brought P-E Eric his banner for the 2019-2020 year.

No District Changeover this year and District

Conference will be this fall.


The Club discussed and voted to not have a meeting July 2nd, but to have a regular meeting July 9th. Hopefully many members will also attend the KRAH First meeting oin July 11th.


Eric announced that Mary Lombardi will be leaving for Italy on June 30 on a Short Term Rotary Youth Exchange. Mary and  her Italian counterpart Kate will be returning July 25th and Kate will stay until August 19th. We will want to put a gathering together with them and the Lombardi's while Kate is here.


Pam reminded everyone of the upcoming Blood Drive and passed around  the signup sheet for volunteers.


Pam also commented on meeting Dan Hale at the Memorial Parade and suggested we might be interested in putting on a 5K run/Walk as a fundraiser. Rob and Dave F volunteered to do the point work of looking into the possibility.


     PDGx2 Marie provided the final Auction net results. The net this year was $9577, which is about $3,000 less then last year. There was an extended discussion of ideas on holding the auction, when to hold the auction, what kind of format and how to market it. Steve recommended that formal planning begin this summer.   


Pauli noted that July had a 5th Tuesday and recommended that the Club accept the Kittery Historical and Naval Museum's offer of have a 5 PM gathering at the Museum. The proposal got a positive reception. President Eric will be leaving July 29th with the Shapleigh School  Japan Club trip to Japan



50-50 Raffle:  50% of the pot goes for club administration and 50% goes to the

               lucky individual if raffle ticket is chosen and they select the one joker hidden

               in the ever  decreasing deck of cards. If the joker is not drawn then the pot rolls

               over to the next week.

Dave F got to start off the new deck of cards and a chance at the $16 Pot 



One card down (10 of Diamonds) and a big handful to go!
