There was no regular meeting today. Instead, at 1PM, we paid our yearly holiday party visits to both Solano and Hannett Houses. Club members provided gifts, goodies and good cheer to the residents of these two assisted living homes. Additionally, Bruce provided musical accompaniment to our feeble attempts at tuneful vocalization.

December is – “Family Month”

Club, District & R.I. News and Business:

The Governor’s Ball - 18 or 25 April. Tables of 10 go for $1600. If our Club manages to sell tables (a table?), we’ll get $400 back per table. Deadline for table sale is 2 weeks before the event. Ticket sales start on 20 January. Can’t we fill up at least one table?

There’ll be another Rotary Leadership Institute session on January 25th, in Albuquerque and the registration link is up and running on the District 5520 website.

Here’s an opportunity to travel on an internationalRFE! There’ll be a group going to District 4845 (Paraguay and NE Argentina) from April 21 to May 2, 2020. We don’t know the exact locations to be visited during this RFE. The visit may include the city of Asuncion, Iguazu Falls, etc. 

During June 12-26, 2020, our District will host a fun Rotary Friendship Exchange group from South Australia.  Donna needs to know which clubs will be hosting, so she’ll know which airport (El Paso and/or Albuquerque or possibly others) they’ll be using. There’ll be five couples and two solo women. The two women could be in the same home if the host has two bedrooms or a room with two beds. Each hosting club must provide transportation in their area and halfway between the hosting club before and after the visit. 

Please respond as soon as possible to Donna Pedace at pedaceabq@aol.com or to Regina Guest at raeguest65@swcp.com to let us know if you’re willing to host that fun group of Australians.

RYLA camp dates: The boys camp will be held Sunday, July 12 through Saturday, July 18. The girls camp will be held Saturday, July 18 through Friday, July 24. They’re always looking for counselors too. Shane Lemon is the director of RYLA and can be contacted at shanelemon@aol.com

Club members provide program speakers for each month of the Rotary Year. During December, there’ll be special Events on 12/10, 12/17, with holidays on 12/24 and 12/31.
