Weekly Bulletin Dec. 10, 2020

December 10, 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.

New Zoom practice going into play – in order to keep better control of those who want to give Happy Dollars, and keep us from talking over each other, “Raise Hand” will be put into use. Click on “participants” at bottom middle of your screen, click on “more” and your will see “Raise hand”. Click on this when you want to be recognized. Then click on “Lower hand” when done. The host will call on you to speak. Otherwise, please mute yourself while others speak.

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???

There are 15 members who are not paid up to date with invoices. You can contact Shawn if you do not know what you owe. Or make a payment at nmrde.org under Donate and then contact Shawn.

A Thank You

A note of thanks was received this week:

Dear Rotarians,

Thank you very much for a wonderful present on my birthday #84. It was a very surprise for me. Everything was perfect and I will appreciate the good idea. Thanks to all the members of the club.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

Dolores Saenz

(And she included a check for $25 to the club!)

Board Actions

  • There will be optional meetings on Dec. 24 and 31. If you cannot attend, these will not count against your attendance.
  • Tabatha Schury’s termination was approved. Even though she would like to participate, family circumstances do not permit at this time.
