Two minutes of Rotary Don called in sick so President Bruce read part of an Email from Bill Rawlins thanking the club and members for the donations last week it was very emotional.

Gary Cox and Helen Dyck gave a overview of Youth protection as mandated by Rotary International.
Most of it is common sense about behavior around youth, either through Rotary or life.  If involved with youth and you learn something concerning abuse or harassment you must let our youth protection officers know, at the very least.  If in the Schools, you must also let the school know.

We were reminded that jokes at the meeting where youth are in attendance should pass the grandmother test.  We don’t need to worry as ours have to pass the Kay test.
In you behavior and talk make sure it is appropriate for youth.
Cara thanked Gary, Helen and Ron for their dedication.
