OPENING REMARKS
            Saifoo gave a very informative description of the Chinese Celebration-Mid Autumn Festival, celebrated at this time of year, normally for three or four days. He presented each of us with a small piece of Moon Cake, to be normally served with wine as it is very sweet and fattening. This is the time of year when we welcome the Full Moon. It is very much comparable to  celebrating our North American  Thanksgiving. Young people generally use this time of year to find a “mate”.
 
ANNOUNCEMENTS
 
            Basil summarized the successful Habitat for Humanity breakfast serving to over 700 women over 9                  days. A similar function will be held next year but perhaps not as elaborate.
 
            Peter Masson advised that the wheel-chair vehicle, donated by Gord Coyle, has finally been delivered                to a Syrian family in need.
 
            Jim Boyko advised that today was his birthday and that he was 40 years old, many times again and                    again. Members present sang “Happy Birthday”.
 
            We are reminded of the upcoming District Conference.
 
            Meet The Politicians function, organized by Raffi, was very successful.
 
            Mike reminded us of a upcoming B of D meeting to be held during our normal lunch. Date to be                        determined.

Joke / Quote of the day:

This woman rushes to see her doctor, looking very much worried and all strung out. She rattles off, "Doctor, take a look at me. When I woke up this morning, I looked at myself in the mirror and saw my hair all wiry and frazzled up, my skin was all wrinkled and pasty, my eyes were bloodshot and bugging out, and I had this corpse-like look on my face! What's wrong with me, Doctor?"

The doctor looks her over for a couple of minutes, then calmly says, "Well, I can tell you that there's nothing wrong with your eyesight ..."
