August 6, 2020  Rotary Opens Opportunities!

All club meetings will be conducted via Zoom until further notice. Please contact Robin at rbroomall@usa.net if you did not receive the Zoom link for this week’s meeting. Please do not share our Zoom meeting link with anyone unless you want them specifically invited to the meeting.


Survey says...

Thank you for the overwhelming and quick response to the survey issued by Membership Chair Paul Keely and President Dennis Greenhouse on when to resume a somewhat normal return to in-person meetings. Of the 38 responses, 9 said return now; 4 said alternate between Zoom and in-person meetings; 14 said wait until Delaware is in phase 3; 0 want to remain on Zoom; and 11 suggested a combination of in-person and virtual meeting at the same time.

After carefully considering all options and survey results, and a discussion with Bill Sullivan at the Courtyard, it was decided that we will wait until Delaware is well into phase 3 and review again after that. 

So we will keep on Zooming until further notice.

Happy/Crappy Dollars? We are still accepting them weekly, but you need to keep track of them and pay up when we meet again in person. Remember the Four Way Test???

Discover Rotary For Prospective Members

The next Discover Rotary Meeting to educate prospective members on the basic premise of Rotary and this club will be held via Zoom on Wednesday, Aug. 12, 6:30-7:30 p.m. If you have any possible candidates, please give their name and contact info to Paul Keely. Paul, Polly and Robin will lead the conversation as we have done in person. Of course, you are also invited to join the meeting to lead some credence to our actually being a group of excited members eager to contribute to the community.

Keep the cards and notes coming!

Keep writing those cards and notes of inspiration for our senior community and get to Laura DelPercio. Paul Keely still has note cards specially printed for your use.

PolioPlus and the Gates Foundation

The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has been working right beside the Rotary Foundation for several years in helping to fund the eradication of polio worldwide. An end-of-year surge in contributions to PolioPlus propelled Rotary to again meets its worldwide goal of $50M to this Fund. Since the Gates Foundation had pledged to match these contributions 2-for-1 up to a maximum of $50M, this means that none of the Gates match will be left on the table. Congratulations to Rotarians everywhere..
