At this meeting, the Club gave best wishes and presented the Bauman family (Ron, Sharon & Mike) with a going-away gift as they're already packed and heading off to reside in Elliot Lake. The Club formally announced the end of the School Fishing Program -- and thanked Ron for his leadership with it since its inception. Ron has donated the fishing gear to the police so the Kids & Cops Fishing Program can continue.

The Club also confirmed that it has given up responsibility for hosting a bingo session every second Saturday evening so, with revenue thereby severely reduced, the executive will need to reassess committments and funding of various programs.
