The April 11/07 meeting of the Fernie Rotary Club was a business meeting
that carried forward a number of important topics. We were pleased to
welcome as visitors, Deanna and Jim Dinwoodie, guests of Rotarian Barb.
Remember guests are always welcome at our meetings
The first and most important agenda item was the introduction of our new
member Tony Grandoni. It was a pleasure to welcome Tony into the fellowship
of Rotary. Tony was well introduced by Rotarian Elizabeth.
Elizabeth gave us the final report on a successful Griz Pin Project. We will
be accepting our cheque for two thousand dollars at the Annual Meeting of
the Chamber on April 19th.
The Golf Tournament ,May 12th, is fast approaching. Each and every member
needs to put forth a strong effort to complete their solicitations to make
this the best tournament fundraiser ever. Each member should endeavor to put
together a team of five golfers to participate and to promote the event at
An excellent discussion was held around the test flight of the Crotarian.
The format of getting the news and events out to each member on a weekly
basis was endorsed. The format about how to do this became the issue for
discussion. The Crotarian and the newly formatted website (fernierotary.org)
are two vehicles designed to accomplish the same goal. The website has a
broader potential audience and therefore it was felt that this is the venue
to pursue. We should have all the same information available on the we site,
including articles of interest, members, meeting reports photo’s, events,
speakers. To submit items for the web site please e-mail them to Rotarian
Kevin at firstname.lastname@example.org. This will encourage all of us to access the website regularly. Also, potential new members would be able to review what we are doing and thus perhaps encourage new members and visitors to Fernie Rotary.
