Athens Rotary Foundation

The Board of Directors of the Athens Rotary Foundation met at 9:00 a.m., Friday, April 22, 2011, in the conference room at Mollica, Gall, Sloan, and Sillery. The meeting was called to order by President Jerry Mollica. Those members in attendance were Jerry Mollica; Channing McAllister; Bill Diles; Jody Harris; Dave Diggle; and Karen Harvey.

There were two requests for funds for the Board to consider. The first came from the K.T. Crossen Post 21 of the American Legion as sponsors of Athens County students at the Buckeye Boys State Convention to be held in June 2011. It costs $300.00 for the Post to send one high school student. On a motion by Channing McAllister, seconded by Bill Diles, the Board approved sponsoring one attendee at a cost of $300.00.

The second request came from Rotarian Cita Strauss as chairperson of the Rotary Club's International Student Exchange Program. One of this year's Outbound students, Kerrigan Boyd, is in Mexico and has asked for financial assist for traveling. As the Foundation holds approximately $700.00 in monies committed to helping Athens County Outbound students, this was a viable request. On a motion made by Channing McAllister and seconded by Bill Diles, the Board approved transferring $500.00 of these monies to the Athens Rotary Club but asked that, prior to granting the funds, the Rotary Club board confirm her travel plans as being Rotary sponsored and chaperoned.

The meeting adjourned at 9:45 a.m.

Respectfully submitted,
Karen Harvey, Secretary
