TREASURER CAL BOOTHBY reminds us it is time for everyone who has not paid their balance of club dues to pony up. See CAL for your balance. We are in the last 2 months of the year before we get to start our new year with President JIM NOLIN (aka the Big Lebowski)

COMMUNITY DAY OF SERVICE
Thank you to PAT MEYER for once again leading the charge representing our Rotary Club for the Redlands Community Day of Service! It was a successful day bringing out more than 1200 volunteers making community improvements. Well done PAT and Rotarian Volunteers ~ the Boulevard median looks great!

PRESIDENT’S CORNER
This weekend is the District Conference at the Desert Princess Resort. During this event our Club will receive many awards for our successes in each of the avenues of service. One of the most exclusive Rotary International Presidential Awards is for our involvement with Rotaract. We are one of only two Clubs in the District that met the criteria. Thank you JACK OS- BORN and BOB HEINZE for helping to make Rotaract so successful!

One of the easiest awards to earn was the President Ron Burton Rotary Club Central Award. At least 27 Clubs qualified. All one had to do was enter all of our goals and projects online at Rotary Club Central. While it may sound trivial this will make the life of President Elect JIM NOLIN much easier. He can quickly see what we planned and achieved this year as he sets his own goals for 2014/15.

The District Conference will wrap up Sunday with yours truly, Robbing Hood, leading the meeting during lunch. This honor comes as a result of RON JEFFREY and the Membership Committee’s hard work in leading us to second place for net membership growth in the District. What should I do during the meeting to give everyone a taste of Rotary Club of Redlands? Excessive fines? Embarrassing photos of prominent Club members? Maybe I’ll wear the green tights…
