-Queen of Hearts Where Could She Be??-

-Proxy Voting-
Now for some official BSRC business: On December 15, we will elect the 2024-25 officers and directors for Sunrise Rotary. All members of the Bozeman Sunrise Rotary Club have the right to vote at the Annual Meeting and any other meeting of members.  A quorum, a majority of all active members, is required by the Club Bylaws to conduct such an election. We currently have 115 active members so 58 are needed to form a quorum. Unfortunately, we haven't had a quorum at a regular Friday meeting for some time. Consequently, at its regular meeting on November 14, the board approved a motion to allow proxy voting for the upcoming election. If a Member is unable to attend the upcoming Annual Meeting, scheduled for December 15, 2023, in order to achieve a quorum, the Member may give his or her proxy to either Secretary Keith Nathan or another member who will attend in person or on Zoom. We all very much want you to attend in person, but if you cannot, please email whomever you choose to be your proxy to notify them of your decision. Please be sure to cc Keith Nathan (khn@aggienetwork.com) in any event so he knows you have done that as well. Thanks in advance for your help! -BSRC Board
 
-Background Check-
Check your emails. A large portion of the club is due for a background check. Every three years the district requires Rotarians to undergo a background check. The email sender is: Rotary International District 5390 and the subject is: Rotary International District 5390 Background Questionnaire. This is not a scam and takes about two minutes to complete. 
Any questions? Contact Barbara Prescott.

In partnership with USAID, Rotary developed the WASH in Schools Target Challenge. Rotary challenges our members to develop sustainable projects that comprehensively address the most pressing water, sanitation, hygiene and education needs  in Belize, Guatemala, Honduras, India, and Kenya. For more information on Providing Clean Water, Sanitation, & Hygiene **CLICK HERE**
