1. Brian Kabat reported on the Rotary Leadership Institute held in Flagstaff on Saturday.  He participated in Session 1.  Brian will be our club president for the 2018-19 Rotary year.
Jay Jones of our club was a resource person at the conference and Brian expressed admiration for Jay's broad knowledge of Rotary.  Brian asked Bob Homann to give him any info he has on the club's history.  Jeannie Anderson offered Brian the scrapbooks she has that also give some club history. Brian has been working with the high school through Larry LaPrise and thinks he will make helping the school district the focus of his presidency.  Specifically he mentioned a new scoreboard and field improvements for the girl's softball team (est. cost $12,000) and an enclosed trailer for transporting band instruments (est. cost $9,000).  Brian has reserved space at Dolce Vita on November 18, 2018 for a fundraiser - maybe a comedy club night.  He strongly encourages other officers and members to attend the Leadership Institute.
