This week's program

Eric updated us on the latest Interact project, artistic painting of the walls at Hope Cottage. 
 
Karl volunteered to chair the committee being formed to distribute Club charitable funds.
 
Millie started Happy Bucks with $5 for being able to spend time with exchange student Marcela.  Carla donated $20 for her recent trip to Sun Valley.  Jeff contributed $15 for attending 3 recent basketball games with Marcela.  Lee was $5 happy his granddaughter was accepted to Xavier High, Paul was $5 happy to be hosting 2 members of Up With People , and Mike Hosking contributed sad dollars as this was his last “official” meeting in Flagstaff. 
 
Carla announced our next service project will be Tuesday, March 31.  Official invite will be emailed.
 
Chad introduced Kris Haskins, Executive Director of the Arboretum at Flagstaff.  Last year was a transition year for the Arboretum, and in October Kris was named Executive Director.  The land and buildings of the Arboretum were once the home of its founder, Frances McAllister.  The Arboretum specializes in plants native to Northern Arizona and the Colorado Plateau.  Currently, they are involved with the Museum of Northern Arizona and the City of Flagstaff to remove existing weeds and prevent weed spread, as well as revegetate damaged areas due to the Museum Fire. Kris distributed wildflower seeds, with the warning that the first frost free planting is after June 1!
 
Our next meeting is March 17, when Tim Carter from the County Emergency Management System will be our speaker.  Mike Hosking led us in the 4 Way Test, and the meeting was adjourned at 1:02.
