Weekly bulletin Jan. 28, 2021

January 28, 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???

Rotary Has Heart! And the box is ready…

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?
