Quote of the Day: President-Elect Cindy Delgato chose the following words of wisdom for today’s meeting:
“If you think your boss is stupid, remember: you wouldn’t have a job if he was any smarter. ”
 ~ John Gotti
Today in history:
None so Cindy spoke of her current experience at PETS & what she’s been doing to prepare for her presidency in July.
    Rotary Minute: 1st service project was an installation of public toilets in Chicago

KJ did a bang up job greeting today - next week will be Debbie & Turner
Student Rotarian report:
None
Committee Reports:

Announcements:    
Mona - next Thursday is overflow shelter meal; Justin is going to cook the 2 main dishes but a sign up sheet will be sent around for it & as well as Sign Up Genius; $$ can be donated so reach out to Mona if you want to donate
Bowl of Life:  
This Rotarian clue: Only half of their face sweats.....
Katja guessed John who guessed Diane who (glows) guessed Jason who guessed Jen (correctly)!!
Jen has Harlequin Syndrome after pinching a nerve in her neck about 8 years ago! She notices it most when running! It also affects her hand.
Turner also reported that he is afflicted with it too - it was because of a surgery removing a benign tumor!
Cards:
Jack of Spades drawn - “you Lose Losers!!”
Birthdays:
- Dan Deitz (not here) & Tom Franks! 🎂🎉
     
Anniversaries:
None today
Brags
KJ - $5 for a trip to Missouri (Cannon ball run inspired) - with Drew to take an Ambulance down to be repaired & pick up one that. Drew took down about 8 months ago; only slept about 5 hours in a hotel; saw the factory where they build the ambulances which was amazing
Michelle - has left Town of Vernon & is now Town Administrator of Stoddard, NH
Kevin bragged for his vacation in Mexico; uneventful trip; weather was good; very relaxing 🌴☀️🍻; met many people from cold climates 🇨🇦; some buildings were completely empty - possibly due to the Thomas Cook travel agency going bankrupt; All Inclusive is highly recommended!
Josh U was at Madri Gras - he “worked” hard; headed to Orlando Sunday for 4 days
Ali - bragged for her daughter who’s going to Fiji today from Samoa where she’s studying
Justin - bragged for an upcoming 80’s dance 2/29/20 here from 8PM to midnight (Leaping back to the 80’s!)
Guest Speaker:   Mona was responsible for our Guest Speaker today (club assembly next week)
Toni & Kevin spoke to us today about the 3 vs. 3 tournament which is in a month (Saturday 3/21/20).
As of today we have posters & registration forms made that need to get out - please get them out if you have someplace to put them up or know someone that can
Rec Center; Boys & Girls Club; Schools; Vernon Rec Department; BF; Greenfield; AAU coaches if you know any;
Labels need to be done if someone knows how to do a Mail Merge (please volunteer if you know how to do this task)
    Jen volunteered to get them printed & she’ll get them to Turner
Once labels are done the forms will be mailed out (Jason will provide the stamps)
We’ve lost a lot of our larger donors from past years so we need help trying to find replacements.
Follow up with local businesses for donations to get the commitment for a donation at the very least.
We’re at about $4000 right now & our goal is $12000
Team fees don’t account for much of our income.
Next week Kevin will get a sign up sheet for other jobs such as set up, clean up, etc.
Concessions should be planning now
Pepsi has committed for donations of product & it’s in place.
Mona & Cindy will coordinate once they have the names of their volunteers
Court Monitors: Kevin has some already committed but he’ll let us know how many more are needed & what time slots.
Shirt color hasn’t been chosen yet for this year - we’ve done pretty much every color! Yellow was suggested for this year.
Looking for someone to create an event on our FaceBook page to help get it out & allow it to be shared & to thank our sponsors on FaceBook.
Justin has been made an Admin for our page & will take this on
Josh U will reach out to NorthStar & ask them about sponsoring as well as Leader
John will reach out to GSP
KJ has arranged for Rescue coverage.
Toni will do brackets & can be there until about 8:30 AM
Free Throw & 3 Point Contests
need hands on deck to help with ball retrieval
Jason will get Sam’s gift certificates for winners
Clean up - middle school could be as early as noon & main gym may be as late as 4ish
Goal is 100% participation is some way, shape or form!
Kevin will be our speaker in 2 weeks & will be giving us another update on the progress of the event.

Adjourn with a recitation of the 4 Way Test!
Respectfully Submitted,
Damon Kindopp
