Meeting Recap 05/22/19
The Rotary Club of Palmdale conducted their weekly meeting at Sizzler’s Restaurant in Palmdale on 22 May 2019.  The meeting was called to order by Chuck Church at 6:31 PM.  Members in attendance were Janice Garcia, Sharon Freeman, Tina Borzage, Charlene Melchers, Gene Melchers, Don Ryan and Chuck Church.  Guests included Tina’s sister Rosy Reyes, our two Interact Club students who attended RYLA Camp (Diana Mondragon and Daniel Merino) and Bobby Oh from the Antelope Elementary School Music Program.  Everyone enjoyed dinner.  The formal meeting began at 6:50 PM.   
Our guests were introduced and Diana and Daniel briefed the Club Members on their experience at RYLA camp.  Both students enjoyed the experience and the new friends that they made.  As is the custom, the students were separated and matched off with other campers to form teams for the weekend.  The teams were then given the task of identifying projects that could make a difference in their community.  They learned about overcoming hardships and still achieving success.  Both Diana and Daniel will flow down their experiences with their Interact Club Members and encourage young members to attend RYLA Camp next year. 
Bobby Oh briefed the Club Members on this Sunday’s Concert at the Littlerock Grange to raise funds to support the music program at Antelope Elementary School.  The event will take place from 1:00 PM to 5:00 PM.  The cost is $10 per person.  Those under 18 are free.  Bobby also mentioned that the music program is in need of equipment and funds to support the program for next year.  Dimus Molina the Principal at the elementary school has taken ill and will not be returning as principal.  A new principal will be named for next year.  Sharon Freeman made a motion to support the Music Program at Antelope Elementary School in the amount of $1,800.  The funds will come from Palmdale Rotary in the amount of $800, Sunrise Rotary in the amount of $500 and Rosamond Rotary in the amount of $500.  Chuck Church seconded the motion and it was approved unanimously.    
Charlene Melchers presented the final version of the revised Bylaws and Policies & Procedures to the Club Members.  After a brief discussion, Sharon Freeman made a motion to approve the newly revised Bylaws and Policies & Procedures.  Charlene Melchers seconded the motion and it was approved unanimously.
