Weekly Bulletin Feb. 4, 2021

February 4, 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???

Board Actions from January meeting

The one major issue discussed at last week’s Board meeting – and is always a subject – is the number of ads from the 2020 Report to the Community that have still not been paid a year after the kickoff for the Report.. The Board unanimously passed the following the motion: Payments must be received along with the copy for advertisements in the 2021 Report to the Community. Copy will not be placed in the Report unless payment has been received.

Also, the Board approved Margie Masino for active membership. Congratulations, Margie.

Rotary Has Heart! And the box is ready…

Each February our club supports our community by collecting non-perishable foods for the Food Bank of Delaware. Canned soups, vegetables, meats, rice, and other non-perishables are need to restock the pantry at the Food Bank and local churches. Drop off your donations at the Courtyard. Tom Minto has a large box in the lobby. He will be taking all of the donations to the Food Bank on Thursday, Feb. 14 (Valentines Day!) And can you post this on your social media sites? Nextdoor? in your Neighborhood Newsletter? at work?
