IT’S YOUR MONEY... VOTE TODAY
 
 
Today, June 18th, the Club did not meet because we have a Town special election. Residents are asked to vote on three measures that would raise property taxes to finance a new elementary school, Fort Sewall’s restoration, and planting trees on Atlantic Avenue and Pleasant Street.
The vote will decide if the Town is allowed to override Proposition 2 ½ and raise property taxes. Click here to see all the questions on the ballot and here to see an explanation of Proposition 2 ½.
INSTALLATION DINNER THIS THURSDAY
 
 
The Installation Dinner is scheduled for this Thursday, June 20th at 5:30pm
If you have not signed up and would like to attend, or signed up and have not yet paid $40 please e-mail Diane Barbour a.s.a.p. or mail her your check: 16 Weston Road, Marblehead, MA 01945.
Those attending who are Paul Harris recipients please remember to wear your "jewels" that evening.
The Installation Dinner is Michael Cognata's last meeting before Kathleen Murphy becomes our new president. As always, we hope to have a wonderful turnout to show appreciation to both Michael and Kathleen.
The new Paul Harris winners will also be announced that evening.
The social hour begins at 5:30pm with dinner served shortly after 6:30pm at the Mason’s Lodge.

DUCT TAPE REGATTA THIS WEEKEND
 
Pirate John
 
The Duct Tape Regatta takes to the water this Saturday. In a message to the Club, President Michael Cognata recalls that "our Club has always made outstanding contributions to this event to benefit international clean water projects. As a reminder to those who have pledged a contribution, kindly fulfill your pledges by giving a check or cash to Bob Erbetta or any RCoMH officer so that we can continue our tradition of raising the most money for this very worthy cause.  Also, Captain Erbetta is still looking for strong and light paddlers for Saturday. Anyone interested or if you know someone who would be suited for this, please let either Mike or Bob know.

SPEAKERS
 
Bill Bartin and Mike Cognata have volunteered to coordinate speakers for next year's meetings, taking over from Zhenique Israelian who did a fantastic job this past year. Bill and Michael wish to thank Margaret Greene, Jessica Barnett, Linda Doliber, and Mike Elkin who have already made suggestions!
