Al Finnigan won the chance to draw the Ace of Spades, but instead drew the 8 of clubs and received a tube of toothpaste as a consolation. The jackpot grows.

HAPPY BUCKS:    Bob Koski Sargent at Arms:  - Be sure to wear your Rotary pin  - no pin  = fined a buck!

Bob happy as his eldest granddaughter will be going to Vienna for 2nd term studying Landscape Engineering at Guelph University.

Hilda happy Tim Dwyre is home and well.  Also Dave Rusza was visiting North Oshawa Farmers Market on Saturday and he is willing to volunteer but not join our club.

Robert Kipling thinks a fine for no pin is appropriate.

Dave Penney happy he was finally able to get some gas for his boat.  He thought he might miss meeting and be stranded out on the lake!

Al has a pen not a pin but happy air condition is now fixed and Hilda will be happy too!

Linda happy Jacquie is here.

Jacquie happy Linda is here.

Jan -  happy she paid her fine.
