Rotary Meeting Notes – 1/10/19
14 WEGO Members were in attendance including Bill Hicks & Barbara DeBaptiste. There was also a visiting Rotarian, Dennis Wallace. We had one visiting guest, Stephanie’s cousin, Shawn Carter. We gathered at Timothy’s Tavern.
Plan of Action: Over the next few weeks please send Travis “what you do for the club.” Does not need to be anything formal. This is just to serve as a backup plan in case you must unexpectedly miss consecutive meetings, etc.
SouperBowl 2019 – We currently have 9 different beer vendors; could use 8-9 more (TBD), 8 soups (last year we have 12), 2 bread donations, 0 dessert donations at this point. We could use a few more vendors across the board. Please see Bob Thomas if you have any ideas. Auction items are still needed. We have 9.5 tables sold. The band has been booked.
Dave will be setting up the Pay Pal account for the Block Pool.
Program: Chip Huston – Executive Director, Habitat for Humanity of Chester County
He was a Rotarian in Coatesville, PA for 8 years. He was the President in 2010-11. He has 2 teenage girls in sports which ended up pulling him away from Rotary for the time being.
Habitat for Humanity of Chester County is celebrating 30 years in 2019. They have built 151 homes thus far.
There next project is to build 40 homes on 60 acres of land in West Grove, PA. The goal is to build homes that fit into the neighborhood so that the Habitat houses do not stick out.
Chip’s passion for the local community paired with his “Service Above Self” attitude was evident during his explanation of the overall housing concerns of Chester County.
