District Governor Bruce Falkins came in to talk to our club about this year's goals.  We had a good Executive meeting Monday night with Bruce and Donna.  Focus was on Membership recruitment and retention and on Rotary Foundation.







Bruce and Donna also attended our Tuesday Meeting and discussed the Membership, Public Relations and Foundation themes.  They also heard updates on our Fundraising activities.  Good mid-summer turnout for our club and another one of Nandi's great breakfasts.  Put June 18-21 on your Calendar for this year's District Conference just a couple of hours away in Kelowna.
