With the continued precautions ordered by the a governor to prevent the further spread of COVID-19 in West Virginia, the board of directors is cancelling all In person meetings of the Charleston Rotary through April 20. It is our current intent to restart our meetings in person on April 27 if we are given the all clear from public health authorities. As previously reported, the board has voted to donate all meal fees to the YWCA Sojourners Shelter during this time as they are in need of equipment and funds to meet the increased demand due to this public health crisis. 

Please continue to stay home, wash your hands, avoid touching your face, and only go out for essential reasons that relate to your health and welfare. If we all work together we can stop the spread to our neighbors and family, and we can protect our health and social service workers who are on the front lines working for us daily. If there was ever a time for “Service above Self” this is definitely it. Let your service contribution be staying at home, staying healthy, and protecting others. Please watch your newsletter and email for updates, including the possibility of future online meetings. 

Yours in Rotary Service, 
Cynthia Persily

Other Ways to Make-up a Meeting:
1. The board unanimously approved another avenue to get additional credit for attendance. In addition to attending a committee meeting, doing an online make-up, or visiting another Rotary Club you can now get one meeting credit for every new member prospect/guest you bring to a regular Monday meeting. The credit will apply during the same quarter in which you bring the potential member/guest. This is a great way to both make up attendance and recruit new members into our club. Contact Paul White with questions.

2. To do a make-up meeting on-line, click the link below: Rotary Club Online make-up location: http://www.rotaryeclubone.org/The on-line system is set up to provide a written confirmation of the make-up to the person who actually did the make-up. The Member is then responsible for providing the confirmation to their Rotary Club Administrator. Please forward a copy of your confirmation letter to me debcoffman@suddenlink.net to receive proper credit, also check the weekly newsletter to see if I have listed your make up and name, if not this indicates that I did not receive your make-up notice.
