Arthur
Started with a joke: (as close as I remember : Editor)
 
Three old guys sitting on a bench.

One says, "Windy today."

Another says, "No, you idiot, it's Thursday."

The third guy says, "Me too. Let's go get a beer."

On a more serious note 

Community Services had an e mail meeting which worked quite well.

Last year we supported 16 different organizations to a tune of nearly 25,000 dollars. So far this year we have supported two requests (i) Toronto Argonauts Youth Leadership Program sponsoring  2 High School students from the Scarborough area for a cost of $140. (ii) Sponsorship of Asialicious North Scarborough Food Fest for $300 where we manned a Rotary information booth. The left over money from the sponsorships is to be given to the Rosewood food bank. Currently we have received several requests for funding and they are under review. Our board has provided us a provisional amount of $ 25,000 for us to proceed with the requests. We have also received grants to buy mittens, socks and head gear to augment our Warm Hands program.
