Today Kris Thomas wore three hats:  She reported on the Healthy Harvest food rescue program; she gave a wrap-up on Bike Benzie, and she ran the annual meeting of the Sunrise Rotary Foundation.
Kris gave an update on Healthy Harvest, thanking members for their continuing work. She then gave a PowerPoint presentation analyzing Bike Bike numbers this year as compared to last. She estimates that we made almost $19,000 from this year's event.
As President, Kris ran the annual meeting of the Benzie Sunrise Rotary Foundation.  In terms of action items on the agenda Linda Wood and Andy Ashworth were reelected as directors. Kris reviewed the Foundation's financial status, endowment with the Community Foundation and giving program.  Over the past five years the Foundation has made grants in excess of $69,000, some $34,430 of which was given away last year.  We acknowledge all contributions to our Foundation and publicize our grants in the Record Patriot.  All grant applications are included with Foundation agendas and minutes on the Club Documents portion of our website.
