Rotary District 7070
Avrums visit to Chicago
Land Acknowledgment: President Courtney
Anthem: Peter Masson
Toast to King Canada and Rotary: President Courtney
Attendance: 11
Visitors: Owen Jones, a friend of Dave Hardy, and Vijay Kumar Chattu, a prospective member.
President Courtney introduced today's speaker, our own Avrum Liederman.
Avrum showed us a presentation of his visit to the President-Elect Conference in Evanston, Illinois. He started with a bit of sightseeing with his daughter, who lives nearby. A visit to the Ferris Ferris wheel built by George Ferris was first on his list, followed by more sightseeing, hotdogs, and beer. The first day was a meet and greet, then a bit of a cruise ( in the rain). The second day was a visit to the Rotary head office in Evanston, where he was given a facility tour. Avrum has put together a presentation detailing his exploits.

Gordon Thanked Avrum for a very entertaining and informative presentation.
Gordon announced that there is no lunch meeting on the 17th because there is a fireside meeting at Avrum's office 
The address is 200 Yorklands Blvd ( runs south off Sheppard 1st Street east of the DVP)
IG Wealth Management 3rd floor
There is parking on the north side of the building; it says pay for, but they don't enforce it.
Barry asked for Happy Bucks:
Barry's son Dillon is retiring. Lucky Dillon!
Dhanni is away now for three weeks in sunny Trinidad.
Dave is happy that Owen attended the meeting.
Owen was Happy to be here.

With nothing else for the good of Rotary, Courtney closed the meeting.
