Jim Gilcreast recognized Victory Day by remembering his father’s service in the Pacific Theater during WWII.
PP Anthony Hollingshead gave a recap of the alternate meeting held at Providence Flatbread and hosted by club member, Amy Manchester, who spoke about her company’s corporate mission and dedication to the community. The event was attended by approximately two dozen Rotarians. Please note, these alternate meetings count as make-up meetings. Plans are underway for another August alternate meeting and details will follow.
PP Art announced that the Kizirian School is having a back to school bbq on 8/27 from 6-8 pm and would welcome volunteers to serve dinner to attendees. He also noted that the conference committee of the Charities Foundation Board and club board has worked with folks at Kizirian to come up with a package of programs/supplies totaling $30,000 that will form the basis of our literacy partnership for this year.
Guests included prospective members Amanda Parent and Barbara Kenerson.
Margaret Kane -$2 reflected that the Red Sox have reached way below AAA and are desparate enough to have asked her to pitch. 
Jim Gilcreast $2- in memory of Cy Wyche and the fact that he shares a birthday with Red Sox legend Ted Williams.
Bob Murphy--$1 for a recent ice cream social at his Narragansett cottage for the kids from San Miguel.
Kris David-$1 saw the musical ‘Hamilton” and loved it.
Steve Hug -$1 in memory of his father who served in WWII in the Pacific.
Barbara Kenerson - $2 happy to be at the meeting.
Wendy Marcus -- $29 in memory of the shooting victims in El Paso and Dayton.
Richard Applebaum -$5: One buck for enjoyment at the Newport Jazz festival and $4 for each Yankee win over the Sox last weekend (note- Richard’s excommunication ceremony will be held during our next meeting on 8/19 J)
Pres. Geoff -- $2 for the new building he will be moving his business into and his daughter’s return home from abroad.
An update was given concerning progress towards our new signature event, the Legends for Literacy Gala, coming in just a few weeks on Oct. 1.
Brochures for both individuals and potential sponsors are available. All are encouraged to use them when seeking sponsorships. Auction committee chairman Jim Gilcreast gave an unamplified update noting that every club member is part of the committee. They are seeking silent raffle, super raffle, and live auction items. In particular, they would like experiences such as vacations as well as limited edition memorabilia and other unique items or services.
We are quickly closing in on the event date so all are encouraged to line up their personal tickets to the event as well as to work on sponsorships and raffle/auction items. Our next update will be on 9/16.
