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
