The Rotary Club of Palmdale conducted their weekly meeting at Sizzler’s Restaurant in Palmdale on 24 April 2019.    The meeting was called to order by President Elect Gene Melchers at 6:30 PM.  Members in attendance were Chuck Church, Sharon Freeman, Don Ryan, Tina Borzage, Charlene & Gene Melchers, David Maddock and Lisa Catlitt.  Everyone enjoyed dinner.  The formal meeting began at 7:00 PM.   
With Sam and Janice Garcia being absent for the meeting, the focus was on past, current and future events.  Don Ryan reported that the Sunday/Funday went very well.  Karen Schultz and Vickie Ryan are still trying to finalize the financial details. 
The Bylaw Update Committee is scheduled to meet again on May 2, 2019 to finalize the new draft Bylaws for presentation to the full Membership.  One item was discussed and agreed upon that the new dues would be $250 per member and $150 for a spouse. 
It was discussed that the new combined Club should consider purchasing a laptop for the Treasurer to maintain Club finances.  It was also discussed that the Club should strongly consider using QuickBooks to keep our records since the Club will be larger in size.  It was also decided to look into moving the bank accounts to Mission Bank.  Gene Melchers will take the lead on obtaining details on the possible move to Mission Bank. 
The Bobby Oh concert is coming up on May 26, 2019 at the Littlerock Grange from 1 to 5 PM.  Everyone should try to support this effort if possible.
Sharon Freeman recommended that the Club start working on the dates for Oktoberfest.  Mid to late September was suggested.  Sharon will reach out to Tony from the band to see what dates they have available.  Then we have to coordinate with Frances Lane to reserve Lane Ranch for the event.
