Pres. Tom: Welcomed our guests and shared that our speaker was unable to make it this morning.
David: Our sponsorship of Marina's Miles gives us two complimentary runner registrations.  Please let him know of your interest.  There still is a need for more course marshalls for the race which will begin at 10 AM.
Asst DG Malcolm McNeil: Every month the DG gets all of his Asst DGs up on a conference call to hear about the status of each club in their areas so that district staff can focus on those clubs which may need assistance ... There is a continuing interest in membership and attendance ... The District Training Assembly is coming up on Apr 6th and RLI on the 20th, but also keep in mind the District Conference which will be a family-friendly affair on Jun 22nd and 23rd.
John: The Rotary Leadership Institute (RLI) is a great opportunity for new members to acquire the skills to succeed in leadership positions at club and district levels.  It is offered at four levels: I,II, III and graduate.  The next offering conveniently located at York Community College in Wells from 8 AM to noon on Apr 20th.  The club will cover the registration fee for everyone interested ... We are funded for two RYLA students this summer, but the cost is very reasonable and we could easily handle more.  The applications should go out to the two high schools (a school does not have to currently have an Interact Club, nor does an applicant need to be a member of an existing Interact Club) for students who have completed their sophomore years.  We'll have to work quickly to get the applications into the district to meet their deadline.
Phil: He has contacted all the new members to gauge their interest in participating in the Little Free Library project.  Now he's opening it up to the rest of the members and circulated a sign-up sheet requesting us to indicate our interest in being a resource in one of six areas: Zoning, Schools, Library, Stewardship, Construction, and Installation.
Russ: The 4th of July Celebration is not a fundraiser; we have Bingo and the Concessions for that.  The committee is meeting today at a phone bank in Portsmouth to contact sponsors ... Bingo as a fund-raiser seems to have a solid future - it's a good fit for us, and Dover is fine with the arrangement as well ... Community Toolbox (Pres. Tom's outfit) is hosting a fundraiser to keep vets in their homes; they're calling it Pasta for Patriots and it will be on Flag Day, Jun 14th, location TBD.
Renee Wheaton: She is the faculty advisor for the Newmarket Interact Club.  The club has 12 - 15 members and has a number of projects planned for May.  They would be open to partnering with us on our projects too.  John mentioned that the club has always been active e.g. their work with Habitat for Humanity after Hurricane Katrina is a great example of their energy.
Bill: Highway Cleanup will be scheduled for either May 8th or May 15th.
