Meeting Summary - June 10, 2021 - Meeting 5044

Auction and raffle Update - clubrunner review

Club Information
Todd Heiman welcomed the Club at the Grand Ely Lodge, as well as those attending on Zoom.
This is the first large in person meeting in almost fifteen months. 
The meeting began with a presentation by Ward Nelson of Paul Harris pins to Todd Heiman and Tom Moore for their $1,000 contributions to The Rotary Foundation - Tom's for a plus six for his ongoing contributions for many years. Thanks for your generosity.
Stop by on Chapman Street and see the progress on the Pocket Park, with a scramble to find out furniture purchased a couple of years ago.

Topics for Today:

Todd and the various committee chairs reviewed progress on the Auction and Raffle:

  1. All raffle packets are out, some are selling well and when you are done call Pat Warner and he will pick them up.
  2. Infrastructure/Beer Tent. Jeff Sundell reviewed the layout in the park and items we will sell such as beer, wine, and cocktails.
  3. Music. Mike Musich reports that a contract has been signed with Pat and Donna Surface. Other options are being considered also.
  4. Publicity. Next item to come is News Releases on the auction and raffle. Then we send information on the event itself, plus our booth at the Blueberry Arts where we can promote plus sell raffle tickets. We will also get information for member's FaceBook pages.
  5. Auction items being collected at meetings as we go along. Tom Moore and his wife, Cindy, are taking pictures of the items and getting them on the website. Online bidding will also be available, with some Buy Now options, but only for silent auction items. 
Todd also reviewed many of the features of the new website and ClubRunner software. Please check things out at your first opportunity.
