We held our monthly club assembly during this meeting. We heard a financial report from Tammy Bonifield where we learned we are maintaining a strong financial position. Larry Stephens reported for the Giving Committee and informed us that they approved grants for; 1) The Livonia Public School Foundation, 2) The Westland Rotary Club for their fundraiser to buy raffle tickets to a Detroit Tigers game, 3) Open Door Ministries, a food bank, and help center in Canton, and 4) a contribution toward the Livonia Lions Club meal packing event on May 28th. Our Board of Directors approved the funding, and the monies were approved by those in attendance at the Club Assembly. Pat Zucal informed us we may need to find an alternative location for our annual Rotary Carnival as our current location, Livonia Mall Sears parking lot, may have a tenant for the lot which would make us need to change our venue location. Bob Carris spoke of Touch a Truck and informed us that Grant Sobczak will be playing a much smaller role in the planning and implementation of the project due to his school schedule and summer internship. We have a SignUpGenius for volunteers. Bob and a few other club members will be meeting with the Interact Club's new president, Ivanna Brigido Torres to discuss the project. Greg Greene will coordinate with the group that is in charge of volunteers for the Special Olympics coming to Detroit. We are asking for volunteers to support the Livonia Lions Club's meal packing event to be held on May 28th. Please use this SignUpGenius link to volunteer for this event.
