Friday, May 3, 2019 is they NHPBS auction. Tom reminded us to wear our Rotary shirts and ask for help filling some holes where others had to drop out. Russ will fill in.


Rotary fest is on June 22, 2019, district requests that you register so they know how many to plan for. Remember it is a family event and should be lots of fun.


UNH Concessions has requested help to fill the need they have for UNH graduation on May 18 @ 7:30am.  They also need help on June 1, 2019 for an event. Both are on the member google calendar.


Phil: Little Library project has some movement. Sarah has been working with downtown businesses, Stephanie has talked to the UNH pre-school and both have expressed interest. Phil is waiting on the city to confirm the requirements to build and Mark has checked in with the town of Lee.


Andy: Bingo shifts we must cover with one member each are 5 - 8 PM and 6:30 - 9:30 PM. He passed around the sign-up sheet and reminded us that it is available on the google docs as well.


Will: Fireworks are getting going, please continue to recruit sponsors we are still in need of many to meet our goal.  Stephanie has updated the website and link on our cards so they lead to the accurate donation link.


Russ: An email went out looking for any Peace Corp/Rotary Alums.  They are forming a group within the district. Russ will also be requesting a meeting soon with next years board, so be on the lookout for that.


Presentation from our own Brian (of Flag Hill Distillery and Winery)  and his business partner Ben.


Coming Spring 2020 they are looking to develop the land adjacent to Flag Hill to provide onsite accommodations.  They will be short term rental villas. This will fill a desperate need in the area and will help boost the local economy.  Shortening travel time, currently 20-30 min, for Flag Hill wedding parties. The business would also be able to accommodate educational seminars and recreational activities.   The facilities will also include an ice cream parlour opening this summer in the old “Cow Palace”. The villas will be built in several phases. Brian and Ben are hoping to create a comfortable place to stay that feels authentic, local and unique.
