Dan Remenap, AHS Principal, spoke to the group.  He thanked the Rotary Club for the Interact Certificates.  He spoke about an "Empty Bowls" project (being conducted by the AHS Art Dept. on May 23) to support hunger relief in Japan caused by the earthquake and tsunami.  The club voted to sponsor the event with a donation of $100.  Proceeds go to the International Red Cross' efforts to address hunger relief.  Dan also mentioned that toys were donated by the school's VISTA volunteer to Rotary to be used as fund raiser prizes for our Amazing Reading Bus Spaghetti Dinner.  The toys will be stored by Carlo in a Peppino's facility. 

Kellan Brusveen suggested that Rotary sponsor a Softball Tournament during Allendale Boulevard Days to raise awareness for the club and raise funds.  Alan Hoffman and Dan Remenap will join Kellan on the steering committee to get the project organized. 

Ron Erickson reminded club members of the golf outing on May 21.

Kellan Brusveen invited members to attend the Brusveen Chiropractic Clinic Grand Opening on Friday and Saturday (See Chamber of Commerce website).
