Presentation: Terry Carroll on the St. Thomas Elgin Community Foundation.
Helen introduced Terry's presentation. Terry spoke in general about the work of the foundation and then more specifically about the possibility of starting a fund that could be used for The Hospice and other projects such as scholarships, supporting individuals with disabilities and playground enhancement. If the club is to utilize the Foundation for The Hospice Project, it is advisable to create a written agreement for The Hospice Project that can be amended for further projects. There were many questions and a detailed discussion about the possible contents of an initial agreement.
Scott indicated that the Hospice Committee would hold a detailed discussion about a possible Hospice agreement. Wade thanked Terry for coming to speak to us tonight.
