• February 16, 2018 Huntsville Rotary Club Minutes

           The 3rd meeting of the 2nd month found the Huntsville Rotary Club enjoying the noon buffet at Don’s Family Style Restaurant with 12 Members present and 2 Guests. President Ken called the meeting to order at 12:30 pm and Darrel was requested to return thanks to our Lord in prayer, followed by our reciting the Pledge of Allegiance to our Flag.  John Ehrhardt was recognized as a visitor, as well as visiting Moberly Rotarian, Judge Jim Cooksey.

       In the absence of our world traveling weatherman,  Wayne stepped up to the plate with a forecast from the Boone Rural Electric Coop as a potential for an ice layer late next week.  This brought some measure of glee in the eye of past-President Tim.

       In order to return to last week’s message from our Club Secretary, no new or old business was discussed, with the exception that Clay indicated the Park Benches would soon be delivered.  S4L Richard visited with President-Elect Jerry about the upcoming PETS to be held in Jefferson City.  Jerry has made his hotel reservations and signed up for the training for incoming Presidents.

        Richard was invited to the podium to continue the discussion on our meals with Josh.  He had sent out an email last week for members to bring their ideas to Club.  It appears that some members would need to stay on the Friday schedule due to work schedules.  S4L was requested to meet with Josh and ask for retaining the schedule this quarter as is, with a distinctive effort to increase our membership.  Currently, we have dropped to 22 members and we should strive to bring in several more in the next couple of months.  When we had 30 members, our meal numbers averaged over 20/week.  Richard noted that Josh would be willing to work with us as he does not want to lose our business.  Lately, we have been averaging about 15 or fewer per week, which is recognized as a loss of income to Josh who fills up the dining area by noon on Fridays.

           Our Leader, Ken, rang the bell to adjourn the meeting. Mark Samp is on the schedule for next Friday.

    Members in attendance today were:  Phil Brown, Jerry Crutchfield, Chris Dady, Darrel Hansen, Clay Joiner, Gerald Link, Roy Morales, Mark Nichols, Ken Rathmann, Tim Seidel, Richard Tregnago, & Wayne Wilcox.

  • Dove Hunt - 2016

    Huntsville Rotary Foundation dove hunt shotgun winner was Bob Stone from the Parkville Rotary club. Jerry Crutchfield presented the gun to Bob. It was a wonderful day for the fund raiser with mild weather and plenty of dove to harvest. 41 hunters harvested over 500 doves and raised over $6,000 for the foundation. The meal afterwards was one of the best with some great food brought in by our club members. We even had guests all the way from Australia to witness the hunt. Thank you to all that helped make this year’s hunt another success.
