The meeting began with an introduction of the Grant Committee. It will be chaired by Erin Dobbins, with committee members Bob Carris, Nancy Darga, and John Clay. They will track deadlines for various grant opportunities and determine the best practices for writing the request.
Next, we heard the Treasurer’s report from Bob Carris. He told us about the balances in both our Accounts and the Interact account, both accounts are positive. It was also brought to the club’s attention that the Hardies Family Trust distributed a check for $5,000 to our Churchill HS Interact Club to pay for the park rental for using Greenmead for our annual Touch A Truck event. In consideration of the donation, the Hardies Family Trust will be named as a sponsor for the event. It was also suggested we have a combined Interact Club and Livonia AM Rotary meeting. It is tentatively set for Monday, Feb. 27th.
Larry Stephens reported that the Giving Committee approved three grant requests this month:
The Civic Park Senior Center was awarded monies to buy rolling food carts.
The Taylor Conservatory Foundation.
M.O.S.T. Ministries, Marty Moro, one of our speakers on Feb. 8th.
