ANNOUNCEMENTS AND CLUB BUSINESS

 
1. Beer Sales Results - Mike Cowan reported via email that this year's Lost Dutchman Rodeo beer sales were $22,385 and tips were $2,112.  This is about 20% less than last year's record sales but cooler temps meant fewer sales. 
2. Jack Beveridge announced the 7th Annual "Power of Wellness" luncheon to be held April 27, 2017 at the Phoenix Biltmore Hotel from 11:00 to 1:00.  Jack is looking for business sponsorships for the event which range from $500 for a "Friend" sponsor to $10,000 for a "Platinum" sponsor.  He also needs raffle prizes and silent auction prizes.  He is hoping the club will become a sponsor at some level and that members will consider donating business sponsorships and prizes. Jack introduced his son Deke who joined Jack at our meeting.
3. President Ed exchanged banners last week with Tom Halazon of the Columbia Center, WA Rotary Club.
4. President Ed welcomed back Bob Dolsen who presented him with a newly designed Banner from his home club of St. Joseph-Benton Harbor, MI.
5. Murray Hiatt told us he has been chosen to be a participant in a future Honor Flight to Washington, D.C.
