Around the Room Discussions:
Sign Project – Wayne Krause
We had a request from someone to take the old signage that they saw discarded. It was decided that the old Welcome to Tunkhannock Signage could be given away, if someone wanted it. Norm Werkheiser will make sure his people know that it is okay, since it is on their property and we do not want anyone thinking it is being taken without permission.
Norm Kelly
Norm Kelly commented that District Conference is local and the price is right.  You will learn a lot about our District and Rotary. It would be nice to get as many Tunkhannock Rotarians as possible to attend all or part of the Conference.

Our next Meeting will be Thursday, Feb 28. Our guest speakers will be Sara Peperno and Amy Feldman who will talk about Northeast Sight – Services for Blind and Visually Impaired.
Prior to adjournment, Mary Tempest led the recitation of the 4-Way Test by the attendees.
President Mike Markovitz adjourned the meeting at 1:20 PM.
