October 8, 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.

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???

Silent Auction up and Running!

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. Let’s make a goal of EVERY member making a contribution.

Additional instructions will be sent in a separate email.
