President Karen announced today's program for today has been rescheduled until October, so she decided to have Heather Bach provide some in site to the club members.
 
Heather distributed a Questionnaire to each table. The questionnaire had each table answer 9 questions. These answers allowed us to see the depth of the commitment from our fellow members.
At the business meeting of the Rotary Club of Medicine Hat today, the Treasurer, Gail Halderman presented the 2017 - 2018 Club Budget on behalf of the Board of Directors.  He began with the Financial update and a quick review of the Statement of Financial Position.
 
 
He reviewed both the proposed General Fund and the Service Budget.  This budget incorporates the Club's Centennial Project, which will likely require a check presentation in the late fall of this year, as well as funding for our youth programs, and an international project.
 
After answering a question or two, Gail moved, seconded by Linda Rossler that the proposed budget be adopted by the club.  The motion was voted on and passed.
 
A copy of the budget is contained in the Clubrunner, Club Documents area for review by any member at any time.
The Rotary club was delighted to welcome Aimee Sarsons, Community Education & Awareness Worker for the Medicine Hat Women's Shelter Society, to speak to the club about the activities of the society and some of the recent physical relocation of programs that has occurred within the group.  Aimee was welcomed by President Karen Blewett.
 
Aimee spoke about the role of the Medicine Hat Women's Shelter Society, the short term help available through the Phoenix Safe House and the longer term education, support and counseling that is provided through Musasa House.  She went through a number of other programs, and course available to families, particularly children of family violence.
 
Due to space issues in the original facility, their Outreach Program has grown from 1 Outreach worker to 3.5 workers. Outreach is located in the Ridge professional building in order to lessen stigma of attending a shelter for support. Safe Families Intervention Team (SFIT) does the same work as Outreach, they just do it out of the police station. In addition, the workers and the officer come to the Ridge office once a week, in order to have effective team building and communication. 
 
Aimee's presentation is available on the club documents section of our website, if anyone is interested in more information or potentially volunteering for their agency.
