Presidents Report

President’s Report

Dave Colden

The month of May has been a very busy time for Rotary and myself and I have
fallen behind in the weekly meeting reports

Mat 9th,meeting 42, was immediately prior to the Golf Tournament, Rob Gay ,
the Executive Director of Community Futures gave us a excellent presentation
detailing what Community Futures does and how it operates. Rob was
introduced by Rotarian Ev and thanked by Rotarian Bill.

The Bank of Nova Scotia’s representative, Claudette Daigle presented the
club with a cheque for $2000.00 to match our earnings from the Griz Pins
sales project. This donation was most gratefully received and the club
thanks Rotarian Barb and Rotarian Elizabeth for their efforts to secure this

The Golf tournament was a success on May 12th. With seventy-five players and
ninety-seven for dinner, the turn out was smaller than last year. However,
the auction was very successful. Thanks to all of you who helped and gave
generously of your time to make this event happen. A great weather day
helped to bring about our success.

We did not have a speaker on May 16th, but a lively discussion of the Golf
Tournament was held as a general forum

The letter of intent between the Fernie District Arts Council and the Fernie
rotary Club has been signed so the Taste of Fernie can be jointly planned
and executed. The first organizational meeting should be held shortly.

The speaker for the May23rd meeting was unable to attend. The meeting
proceeded to discuss various issues related to the Fernie Rotary Club

There will not be a noon meeting on Wed, May 30th. The meeting will be at
6:00 pm at Knox United Church , whereIincoming President Tom will chair
his planning meeting. Pizza will be ordered and the cost shared among those
attending. This is a very important meeting to help Tom formulate plans for
our club during the next 12 months. Members and interested parties should
try to attend and give your input.

Happy Anniversary
