Mike Steven gave us the good news that Jim Monahan made a sizeable bequest to our club.  His intent is for us to use the gift locally, but there are no other restrictions.  A committee of seven has been appointed to discuss possible uses of this gift.


Personal news:  Paige is expecting an addition to the Crockett family.


Kathy advised that a grant is being developed to fund a visit to Haiti to look into opportunities for additional assistance to the orphanage there.


Steve alerted us that a new grant system is being developed by the Rotary Foundation.  He also advised that the GSE visitors from Nigeria, hosted by the River Valley club, will be spending a weekend in Bethel in early May.  The GSE visitors are all in occupations assisting special-needs persons.


The Membership committee continues to consider attendance policies that would better accommodate individuals who have difficulty attending morning meetings but would like to participate in service activities and projects.
