Our guest today was Brian Novak, Cubmaster for New Brighton Cub Scout Pack 412.  The Pack, and its corresponding Scout Troop, is looking for a new sponsor.  The troop leader will be here next week with more information.
Honorary member MaryAnn Bawden graced us with her presence, and delicious cookies, today.
Today’s meeting focused on club administration.  Due to lack of a quorum, we were unable to vote on the 2022-23 club leadership slate.  Watch your email for an e-voting opportunity.
Cindy Carlson presented thank you cards from our Remember Niger sponsorship students, Halimatou and Soulemayne. 
Cindy also said that we will be initiating a District Matching Grant proposal to build a staff living quarters for the Senitizo health care project in Central African Republic. 
Cindy also played a video update on our Nicaragua Global Grant project.
Dana Rebelein read thank you letters from our Camp RYLA participants.
One of our newer members, John Johnson, has ideas for making the New Brighton Mounds View Rotary more appealing to new members, especially younger ones.  He will be presenting his ideas at the May 24th noon meeting.  His recommendations involve substantial changes in meeting frequency, time and format.  Input from the entire membership would be helpful to determine our way forward.  Please make every effort to attend this important meeting!
Next week’s presenter (May 10th) will be Mike Whilhelmi from Xcel Energy.
We will not be meeting on May 31st due to the Memorial Day holiday.
On June 28th, the meeting will be in Nyle Zikmund’s beautiful back yard in Blaine. The Board meeting scheduled for that day will be rescheduled.
