Honorary Members IntroducedRotary's rules recognize that there are people in a community who exemplify the principles of rotary but are not members of a club. For those deserving people, the rules allow a club to honor them with an honorary membership. This year the Bay City club has named five honorary members in recognition of their contributions of time and financial backing of our Club's activities. On Tuesday the club recognized William and Elaine Fournier and presented them with Honorary Member pins.
LAST WEEK'S PROGRAM - Club AssemblyAll Rotary Clubs are expected to hold club assemblies on a regular basis to discuss the activities and plans of the club. The Bay City club has used these meetings to focus on long range plans and major projects. Last Tuesday Don Massnick led the assembly in a review of the long range plan.
The Long Range planning committee put together a number of question and discussion topics. Committee memebers were seated at each table with alist of five or six topics for that table to discuss and rank. Massnick circulated among the tables to provide further guidance and assess how the discussions were going.
The general reaction to the announcement of a club assembly is generally less than enthusastic. In fact, the discussions at the tables quickly become lively and interesting. More than one group remained after the close of the meeting to continue their discussions.
The results of the assembly will be reviewed by the committee and reported to the club at a future meeting.
