All meetings above begin at 10 a.m.

Division 10 Lt Governor, Jan Robertson, made her official Board visit and gave a presentation of the statistics of where the Rose Float Club stands in relation to the other clubs in Division 10. It is difficult for the Rose Float Club to be distinguished because our purpose is different from the usual Kiwanis Clubs. For example, the Rose Float Club coordinates and feeds 8000 SLP's to help with the Rose Float decorating every December but the club does not get credit towards being "Distinguished" because we don't actually sponsor an SLP club. The Secretary was asked to contact KI to see if the club could get credit for this different type of SLP involvement. All "Distinguished Club" criteria will be analyzed to see if the club can meet the criteria in other ways.

Meeting Adjournment: The meeting was adjourned at 11:05 a.m.
