Weekly Bulletin Feb. 25, 2021

February 25, 2021     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???

Readers at Gateway

On Friday, 2/12/21, the Newark Morning Rotary Club participated in a virtual reading project  for elementary students at Gateway Lab School located in Wilmington, DE  Each student received a copy of the book, Hoops, by Elena Donne, a Delaware native, compliments of the Newark Morning Rotary Club. The students jumped started their morning with the reading of the book by State Representative Michael Smith of Newark, DE

The event was well attended and enjoyed by students, parents, staff and six Rotarians, Tim Boulden, Laura DelPersico, Evelyn Hayes, Joyce Henderson, John Horner, and Michael Luck. Gateway Lab School is a public charter school, who serves children in 3-8, who struggle with achieving academic success in a traditional classroom environment.

Get your FACEMASK!  All members who have not yet gotten your two facemasks can email Robin with your choice: 1) pickup at HER house with advanced notice, please, 2) have it mailed to you, 3) have someone deliver it to your house, 4) forget about it (i.e. you don’t want it.)

You will get a “ribbon” to wear with your Paul Harris Fellow pin. Easy tax deduction, easy way to show your commitment to the humanitarian work done by The Rotary Foundation.

Thought for the Week

If you can’t think of a word, say “I forgot the English word for it.” That way people will think you are bilingual instead off an idiot.
