This week –June Waters will be giving us an update on the World Awareness Children’s Museum. 
We have the pleasure of introducing three new applicants for membership.
Ryan Haig from Amsure Insurance is being sponsored by Jennifer Brink.   Alisha Hanley from the Queensbury Senior Center is being sponsored by Marissa Mulari from the Capital Region club.  Julia Steciuk from Northeast Power Systems is also sponsored by Marissa.  All three have attended club meetings and met with a membership committee member in advance.  If no objections are received we will proceed with induction on February 14th.
5K Application Prep –under the leadership of PP Jim Goodspeed we managed to finish the job in 1 ½ hours!  Thank you to the following: Fred and Maryellen F., Charles A., Cindy A., Joan T., Dave L., Charla and David, Missy and Jim G and Lee P.

Ian Williams has a trip scheduled from October 20th to 25th for the Pure Water for the World Haiti trip.  Anyone is welcome to join him.  This would be a truly hands on experience.  See Ian for more info.
Last Week – Missed Gordon at 50/50!  It took two to do his job – John F and Dave L….but it was noted that with Gordon absent his table was packed with Rotarians more than ever!  Hmmmm…
Frieda Toth did a plug on her library fundraiser to get a “pie in the face”.  Well, - she got it folks and I saw the pics to prove it.  All for a worthy cause….
Ever been to a District Conference?  This is a great opportunity to meet other Rotarians from our district and come back with some great ideas going forward! 
The Conference of clubs will be held in Essex Junction, VT  May 3-5.  It is being held at the beautiful Essex Resort and Spa.  If you would like more info please see President Cindy.  Jim and I will be attending and would love to see more Glens Falls Rotarians there as well!
114th Rotary International Birthday Party – The Hyde Collection Thursday February 21 6-8pm.  $30 per ticket.  Catered by Docs from the Park Theatre.  This is limited to 60 Rotarians in the District so be sure to sign up right away.  Signups begin early this week and registration is through the district website.  Check your email for details. 
Board meeting report – The board voted to donate $100 each from the Foundation budget to the RI Foundation on behalf of Don Hess and Bob Krug.  A donation of $750 was made to the Hyde for their generous support of our Rotary Birthday Party.  A donation of $500 will go the snack pack program at the Queensbury Middle school for kids who need food to cover school vacations and weekends.  Stay tuned for the Big Brothers Big Sisters Bowlathon in March – we will support our Team to the tune of $500.  Lastly – we are finalizing the list of candidates for the Board of Directors for the 2019/20 rotary year.  Just one last board member slot to fill.  PP Harrison will present the slate officially on February 14th. 
See you Thursday,
