Announcements:
With Angela’s help Bob Manheimer is completing a draft of a strategic plan that will be presented to our Board members to get their input and suggestions.
 
A Board meeting  is to be scheduled for Tuesday evening, July 18th at 5:30pm at Bob's home to present the plan. them.
 
As is the case with many other Rotary clubs, we must look at how we can, not only sustain, but grow our own club over the next few years. Additional initiatives are necessary and Bob and Angela have pursued specific suggestions for consideration. The plan that Bob will present is not only for his year as president but also for Angela’s year as president. That is why Bob and Angela have been working together on this with the intention that initiatives can be built upon in third year that follows and beyond.
 
Our next breakfast is on July 21st. Incorporating any revisions made during the Board meeting on the 18th, Bob will present and discuss the final strategic plan at this breakfast meeting.
 
Also, the Larchmont Rotarian Club has been invited to join us for breakfast on the 21st. Larchmont is one of the Rotary clubs facing the same challenges as we are. Lora Hugelmeyer has told them that we are finalizing a strategic plan and they are very interested in observing and understanding our approach.
 

Round Table Discussion:
There is so much competition for our donations and our member's time. The members present spoke what charities and services they personally support and why. This information was helpful to appreciate as we move to complete the strategic plan.
