Weekly Bulletin Oct. 29, 2020

October 29, 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???

Where’s Michael?

It’s our version of Where’s Waldo! Each week Michael Luck will have a different background to his picture. Yes, he is at home in Newark, but can you guess where his picture is from?

Silent Auction up and Running! Time running out!!!

Our Silent Auction will be online until Oct. 31. Do your Christmas shopping early while the bargains are plentiful. Our annual Silent Auction will take a different turn this year with all bidding being done online. Go to this link to see what is available and make your bid. But don’t be complacent and think you won the item – keep an eye on your item and keep bidding higher. That will encourage others to up their bids, too.


If you have an item (new item, handmade, craft, service, or gift card) to donate, send a picture or description and starting bid to Michael Luck at mykluck@gmail.com. The more items we have, the more fun we will have raising money for PolioPlus.

Thank you – Jerry Holt, Nancy and Jillian Chase, Anthony Santoro, Robin Broomall, Bill and Rosemarie Sullivan, and Steve Fangman for helping to pack cartons of food at the Food Bank last week. In less than 2 hours, we packed 182 cartons containing juice, cans of soups, beef stew, dry milk, and vegetables for pickup in the facility’s pantry.

Where is your BUDDY?

Have you made contact with your buddy this week? He/She might by waiting for your call or email. Be forewarned that Sgt. At Arms might be asking why your buddy is not on our next Zoom meeting. Fines are coming!
