Paul and Joann (and spouses) are going to Ajijic to visit Clubs there and to get an update of past projects.  Let them know if you are interested in going Aug. 8-12. Let Rose know if you are attending her Community Service Project meeting on February 16th (7pm). Remember to invite a friend to the Blood Drive on February 20th (1-6pm).  
We had a discussion on "Why the Sunset Club?" Key points:
  • We are one club with two meetings.  Members opt for one or the other regarding meeting costs, but are welcome to go to non-opted club by paying the meeting fee, currently $14 for Lunch and $8 for Sunset.
  • Main reason for starting Sunset meetings was fact that Lincoln people could not attend Lunch meeting - our membership was stagnating.  Sunset meeting has inducted three new members as of today, with one more application in. 
  • There will be communication of each meeting's activities via this Bulletin and committee reps for each meeting.  Key announcements will be given in each.
  • It is a scary but if we work on it we can make it work.  District Governor Glenn Fong has applauded us for this bold move. 
Harriet Garland is coming back to the club, and won the raffle.  Good things come to good people! 
Our speaker was Jerry Hall, PDG of district 5190 (East of us).  He gave us an update of Uganda Nursing School Bwindi project that we have contributed to.
