Dear Fellow Rotarians: Your Rotary Board of Directors met March 12th to discuss the pandemic corona virus and potential ways that we can mitigate the risk to our membership. To that end, they came to the difficult but important decision to CANCEL our planned Rotary meetings on 3/23. and 3/30. We feel that given the guidance to limit large gatherings, coupled with the risk of corona virus to older people and those with chronic diseases, out of an abundance of caution we must do the responsible thing and cancel our meetings. We will re-evaluate as the risk is further evaluated going forward. We are notifying our speakers and will reschedule them later in the year. We are also notifying the Civic Center.
As the need for Service Above Self is heightened during a global pandemic, your Board has voted to provide support for the YWCA Sojourner’s Shelter meal programs during our hopefully brief hiatus by donating our meal costs weekly to Sojourners. The Community Investment Committee has already identified needs here, and this will allow us to continue to do good work for our community during our break from meetings.
Please watch your emails for updates on our resumption of meetings. Also, please keep yourself and your family and community safe by following the simple guidelines below provided by the CDC. You can also visit the CDC website at www.cdc.gov and find out more information in their frequently updated guidance.
Yours in Rotary Service,

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 email@example.com 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.
