Welcome and Introductions
 
On discussion with members, it was felt that we should be hosting more “bricks and mortar” meetings. While members are engaged in various causes and events in the community, the Rotary e-Club of Lulu Island should be physically meeting more often.
 
Therefore, for the balance of 2017, we will be meeting on the third Wednesday of each month, and two members will “host” the meeting. The Hosts will advise the venue, agenda and activities of that meeting.
 
Next Meetings:
October 18 Hosted by Dale and ?
November 15 Hosted by Tony and Tina
December 20 Hosted by Savannagh and Wayne
 
 
Online e-Meeting about Polio
 
District 5070 hosted an online meeting across Canada on Wednesday, September 27th. Interested parties could log onto their site from 5PM Pacific (6PM Mountain, etc.) to join the discussion.
 
Sacred Valley Project
 
Kevin will be travelling to Peru in October and has connected to a Charity through Pack for a Purpose (www.packforapurpose.org) which:
 
-is dedicated to improving access to education for young women from ages 13 through 18 years old. These women come from low-income families in remote, mountain communities of the Sacred Valley.
This project provides safe and nurturing accommodations, educational resources, and nutritious meals for these young women so that they may continue their secondary education and become knowledgeable and empowered women.
 
The Sacred Valley Project requests educational and medical supplies. In Peru, families are responsible for supplying books and pencils and bags for their children, and so in many larger families, there is not enough for the younger children or the girls to go to school.
The easiest way to get educational supplies is to purchase them in the larger cities.
 
It was discussed and decided to send USD$200 with Kevin to purchase supplies in Cusco and donate the the Sacred Valley Project.
 
 
Rotary e-Club of Lulu Island Vests
 
Tony suggested we make Rotary e-Club of Lulu Island vests for members to wear at events. It was discussed and decided that a three-season vest would be nice to have. Tony will look at purchasing and bring samples to the next meeting.
 
Thoughts to use the e-Club of District 1070 logo or similar...
                                                               
 
 
Website and Events
 
It was suggested that everyone look at the upper right corner of the home page in the Member Login. Everyone has a Log-in name and Password assigned (please see Eric or Kevin). Members should log in and change their Password to a more secure and easily-remembered one !
 
Anyone can post to the website and add events or requests for help.
If not familiar or comfortable, then you can e-mail Eric or Kevin with the details of events. Specifically, W4H1 (Who is it for, What is the event, When is the event, Where is the event, How many volunteers do you need)
