WFOC MEETING NOTES.        JAN 4, 2024


We had a good turnout for the first meeting of the new calendar year—16 of us, including a few members that we haven’t seen for a couple of weeks.

President and “Queen” Cindy followed through on her intention to auction off the crown and it was bought for TWO weeks by new member Natalie Fox. She looked official in her sash and crown, however does not yet seem to appreciate the energy of the crown as she did not really wield the power she had. Perhaps she only sought to keep the crown from falling into unsavory hands, or maybe next week she will be a force to be reckoned with!  See photo

Two other fairly new members, Cherry Givens and Karen Lorenc, each gave a brief overview of themselves—they are both very busy!

Jeff Gauger reported that the wood for the next Sleep in Heavenly Peace “Build Day” has been ordered and will be cut prior to the FEB 3 Build by Skill Center students.  Jeff will see if some of those students can help at the Build—that way they could understand and appreciate what happens after they have done the cutting.  We discussed a goal at this Flushing Rotary sponsored Build of 45 beds to set a new record for a single day’s construction of bed components by the Flushing Chapter.  MARK YOUR CALENDAR: Saturday, February 3 at Signs By Crannie, beginning around 8 am.

For Board Members: there is a Board Meeting scheduled for Thursday, JAN 11.  Jeff Dennings has detail on arrangements.

We had an open discussion about projects, fundraising ideas and what is happening with other clubs in our region.  Lots of things to consider!

Mike Butts will have a pacemaker implanted next Monday, so please keep Mike in your prayers.  When asked how long the procedure would take, he said he didn’t know, but there is a football game on TV that evening and they’d better be done so he can watch it in realtime.  GO BLUE!

Bill Reaves won the right to draw a card for the “50/50” drawing, but did not choose the winning card, so the jackpot continues to grow, with the total now approaching $300.

Until next time, PROMISE YOURSELF….
