President Mike B. was joined today at Cafe Spiga by 9 regular members plus 2 guests, Michelle Angeuilo, a friend of Deb's, and our visiting speaker, Allan Varela, representing the Arts Council of Greater Port Jefferson/Northern Brookhaven.  Today was also an OPEN CUPBOARD COLLECTION DAY.  Dennis thanked our members who brought in their donations.  Reminder: Donations are collected on the 2nd Tuesday of each month- and that there is a larger need in the summer for the goods we provide for the community's less fortunate, when schools are closed.  Thank you Dennis, for delivering the goods to their destination!
 
President Mike began today's meeting by inviting members to reach out to friends, neighbors, acquaintances, relatives, etc., to see if they'd be interested in becoming members of our club.  This is Membership Month, and our goal should be to grow our club by at least 3 new members this year.  We agreed that we need to publicize better than we do currently who we are and what we do.   We need to reach out to The Patch and TBR newspapers, to the Village and Greater Port Jefferson by any and every means possible and bring public awareness to what Rotary membership means locally, nationally, and internationally.  Mike will look into ordering Rotary auto decals for us to place on our vehicles- a practice that we used to do- again, to advertise that we are proud members of this great organization.
 
How many Raffle Tickets have you sold?
 
Judi is ill again and would certainly welcome your healing thoughts- and cards, too!
 
Mike noted that Camp Pa-Qua-Tuck will be holding its 1st Cornhole Tournament Fundraiser on 8/15 from 6-10 PM at Dublin Deck in Patchogue, and you're invited.  Admission includes a BBQ dinner, cash bar, games, and prizes. You can form or join a team and compete in the enjoyable tournament.  To register, visit https://camppaquatuck.com/first-annual-cornament
 
The Rotary Club of Southampton invites you to its "Night at the Rogers Mansion" on Thursday, 8/25 from 5:30-8 PM. It begins at the Southampton History Museum, 17 Meeting House Lane, Southampton.  Among the activities: the appearance of World Class Mentalist, Kevin Nicholas; Professionally Drawn Caricatures; Open Bar & hors d'oeuvres; and Tours of the Rogers Mansion grounds and New Exhibit.  A Single Ticket costs $75, while a pair of tickets will cost $125.  For more information, go to: www.southamptonhistory.org/calendar.
 
Our President reminded us that we should advertise other Rotary Clubs' events just as we'll expect them to advertise ours.
 
Mark Snyder will be formally inducted as a new (actually, returned) club member as soon as arrangements can be made.  Jen, our new Membership Chair, will have to get a new member packet and pin to present to to him at a ceremony to which he should be invited to bring family members.  Mark will also be matched with a club buddy/sponsor.
