News of the Meeting of July 20th


Posted by Yvette Hohler
At Cafe Spiga today, Pres. Rob hosted 9 members, including former and now Honorary Club Member, Ed DiNunzio, as well as our guest speaker, Angeline Judex, from the LI Explorium, a Port Jeff gem of a museum/learning center.
Rob shared the following information from Debbie, who is a member of the Hope Children's Fund Gala Committee:  eleven of our club members will be sharing a table at this event and there is still room for more.  The cost: $100 for Rotarians, $200 for guests.  Unfortunately, tomorrow is the last day to order tickets.  See the announcement below or the information on HCF's website, to buy tickets.  Last minute purchases tomorrow can also be made by using this Venmo address:  @HopeChildrens-Fund .
Jen is still collecting Raffle Ticket stubs and money from our Annual Raffle sales. *** Remember: The Raffle Drawing is Tuesday, August 3rd.*** Al has graciously offered his barn (diagonally across from Cafe Spiga) for the Drawing and celebration surrounding the end of the club's 2021 Raffle Sales.  So far, Judi is far in the lead as Chief Raffle Seller, with 236 tickets sold!  Sharon has sold 57; Yvette has sold 38; Pat has sold 37; Dennis has sold 30; Michael has sold 20; and the PJ Library team of Kim & Tom have sold 5.  There's still time to bring up our sales numbers!  Do your best!
Plans for our next fundraiser, the Annual Golf Outing- on September 12th- are moving along.  The brochures will go out this week.  Club participants and benefactors/donors from our past years' golf events are especially invited to renew their efforts at this time and help us create another successful and enjoyable venture. 
Dennis again shared the invitation to take part in the Annual Greenport/Southold Rotary Golf Tournament on September 1st. The cost will be $225 p/p.  Contact Dennis for more info.
Dennis also invites us to come to Camp Pa-Qua-Tuck on Sunday, August 8th, for an Ice Cream Social & BBQ and an opportunity to learn more about The Social Brain.  The event is free, but donations will be gratefully accepted.
Judi Betts and Dale Kuhn hope you'll drop by tomorrow, July 21st, at Judi's home from 2 PM to 6 PM to meet and greet a former Rotary Exchange Student, Elizabeth Rodriguez, who was hosted by both Judi and Dale a few decades ago. 
The announcement of this invitation brought about some questions and a brief discussion about Rotary's International Student Exchange.  How fortunate that Ed DeNunzio was present today to explain the program and answer the questions!  While the Rotary Student Exchange program continues in other parts of the world, plans to host and/or become a participant here have become so much more involved/difficult than in the past. Since currently it falls on the club and the District to ultimately take the responsibility for the total success of each exchange endeavor, it has been a while since LI clubs have felt comfortable renewing the Exchange locally.  The hope: perhaps the current rules/restrictions/expectations will ease in the near future, and District leaders will resume organizing exchanges here.
On behalf of the Executive Board, Rob reminds you that it will hold its monthly meeting via Zoom on Friday, July 23rd, at 8 AM.  If you'd like to attend, contact Rob for the Zoom invitation.
