100 Elliot Lakers Who Care

  • No update.


  • Adventures in High Tech.
  • This is a project we have participated with in years past.
  • Deadline for participation in this year’s (online) event is October 9th; therefore, it’s a little to tight of a timeline for us to participate this year.
  • Perhaps we can involve ourselves with Adventures in Citizenship, assuming it is virtual.

Golf Tournament: Dave and Chris provided an update

  • Tournament is “Good to go!”.
  • Will require a few people on Friday night to set up signs.
  • Did a test run with the toilet seat hole. Thumbs up!
  • Meals have been arranged. Probably should have tickets for the participants.
    • Paid for 120 meals and we are currently at 116 participants.
  • Weather for tournament day is forecasted to be good although a little on the cool side.
  • Mrs. Briffet has been advised of the tournament but will not be attending.
    • Given the format of this year’s event, there is no reason for her to come anyway.


  • We are going to set aside some time in October for further discussion on this topic.

Highway Clean-up

  • Alternative date of September 30, 2020
  • Meet at the No Frills Parking Lot approx. 17:15. Leaving the parking lot at 17:30 for the clean-up.

District Governance

  • Call for candidates is due by October 30th.

World Polio Day

  • October 24th this year.
  • More information is forthcoming along with ideas on how we can participate.

Club Banking

  • Northern Credit Union (NCU) has a banking option that would satisfy our banking needs.
  • We would be able to maintain the two signatories requirement for all outgoing funds.
    • Including online.
  • Costs: $4/month for up to 15 transactions (only applies to outgoing transactions, not incoming).
    • A charge of $1/outgoing transaction would be applied after 15.
  • A review of past banking transactions revealed that there are very few times in a year that we would exceed the 15 transactions.
  • Expectation is that, if we were to switch to NCU, our banking fees would be a little less than $100.00/year.
    • Scotia Bank alone, currently charges us more than is our expected fees from NCU.
  • A membership in NCU would be held by the club.
  • At NCU we would have access to electronic banking.
  • We would need to present our bylaws, and motions passed by the club to start the process with NCU.
  • Discussion:
    • If favour as we would “put everything under one roof” and reduce our banking fees.
