The tentative meeting dates for October/November/December were set. All meetings are at Denny's Restaurant in Temple City except for those locations in GREEN print. The dates are as follows: Saturday, October 6, 2007 (Club at 9:00 a.m., Board at 10:00 a.m.); Saturday, October 13, 2007 (Club at 9:00 a.m., Gala Fundraising Steering Committee at 10:00 a.m.); Saturday, November 10, 2007 at Marie Callenders Restaurant in Simi Valley (Club only at 9:00 a.m.); Saturday, November 17, 2007 (Club at 8:00 a.m., Board at 9:00 a.m., Committee at 10:00 a.m.) and Saturday, December 1, 2007 at Rosemont Pavilion in Pasadena (Club at 9:00 a.m.). Arrangements are still being made for another Club meeting at Rosemont later in December. Also, Division 10's Official Governor's Visit is scheduled for Saturday, December 8 and may also be held at Rosemont. These arrangements are still in discussion.

District Convention: Rose Float booth was successful. The candy Kisses roses made by Shirley Carroll and Key Clubbers were not selling well until the Key Club and KIWIN Governors walked around the convention vendor area with them to sell. Perhaps this is a good technique to use in the future with the pins and other small items to sell.

Trip to Georgia District: Dave Wallach reported on his trip to the Georgia District Convention. He was invited by the District to attend and speak regarding the Rose Float. The travel to the Convention was long and difficult. The booth time was only 3 hours. He did not get to speak. Although the long term benefits may not be known, it is thought that this may not be the best way to promote the Rose Float project.

Promotion Materials: Dan & Vicki Steffen, long time Rose Float Club members, have moved to the Pacific Northwest District. They have asked for promotional Rose Float Project materials to distribute in that District. The Board agreed to send them the materials.

Gala Steering Committee: The Steering Committee has recommended three names for a possible speaker at the Gala in the spring. The recommendations are: Pete Carroll, Pat Haden or Jim Hill. President Allen will try to obtain Pete Carroll. Anyone who may have a connection with any of these suggested speakers or any other "name" speaker is to contact Reid Allen.

Possible New Club Member: Paul Palazzolo, the newly elected Vice-President of Kiwanis International has requested to become a club member. Reid Allen will pursue his request.

E-mail Lists: Craig Wallace will help in making sure the member e-mail lists are up to date.
