From the Desk of John White-

Harpoon for the week of Dec. 17

Weekly Meeting Statistics:
A total of 101 members learned about education in Ypsilanti from Tim Wilson. We also had three Visiting Rotarians (Cindy Duggal of Windsor Ontario, ADG Ann Nauts of Chelsea and Ted Sanford of Coronado CA) and ten guests (mostly his former colleagues from Emerson School). In conjunction with lunch, 22 members met in two committees (Peace and Program). Twelve members of the board met on December 19.

Makeup Cards for Roving Rotarians:
Don Duquette’s makeups reported last week were identified as having been held at an “undisclosed location.” They were actually in Petoskey. Thanks to Don for revealing the venue.

Monthly Membership Report to the District:
December was Disease Prevention and Treatment Month in the Rotary year. We finished the month with 290 Active Members after the induction of Reed Vander Slik, the passing of Art Holst and the resignations of Lori Athey, Andy Sohn and Lois Stenger. Our club also has six Honorary Members and nine Inactive Emeritus members. Average attendance during November was 34% for the three meetings. Not reported to the district but calculated for club use were the averages of 98 Ann Arbor Rotarians and 15 others at our weekly meetings. Our Engagement Ratio for November was 54%.
