Today’s meeting was a club assembly and we used the opportunity to fine tune the details of the big events in April.
Geoff Holliman outlined the details for the CPY Spring Luncheon which will serve as the official Rotary meeting for next week.  The luncheon will be held on April 5th from Noon to 1PM (check in 11:45-12:00) at the New Brighton Community Center.  The featured speaker will be DeAndre Clarke, former CPY student and New Brighton Police Officer.  Please register by 3PM Friday April 1st or .  Check the CPY website for a virtual attendance option and other details.
The 35th Annual New Brighton Mounds View Rotary Easter Egg Hunt is soon upon us.  We will stuff the plastic eggs with jelly beans and prize slips on Sunday April 10th at the Exchange.  The Egg Hunt preparations begin at 9:30AM on April 16th at Driftwood Park.  There is much to be done to make this event a success and it’s important that we have lots of help.  These two opportunities would be a good time for Rotarians who haven’t been attending meetings to reconnect with the club.  Friends and family are invited to join us as we prepare for the Egg Hunt.
Our sole fundraiser, The Gold Plate Dinner, will be held on Friday, April 22nd, 6:00PM at the Mounds View Community Center Ballroom.  Forty one of the necessary 75 tickets have been sold which means that 34 tickets still need to be sold.  NOW is the time to ask your friends, family and business associates to attend the event.  Download and print as many copies as you need of the GPD Invite Flyer so that potential guests will have the information they need to make a decision.  We also need more Mini Raffle and Dine Around Town donations and, of course, additional Sponsorships are always welcome.  We are also offering a No-Plate donation option this year.
