Hello, follow Rotarians,
Here is a quick update from Wednesday's meeting for those who could not attend.

Last weeks past program…

Paul Frey presented a program on “What’s happening with the Chamber”. Paul’s presentation was highly informative and very entertaining. Thank You Paul for a great presentation and for taking the time to speak to the club.     

Announcements:

Now you have two choices on how you want to attend the meetings! In Person or by Zoom. We will continue to zoom are meetings this way if you are running late, or do not feel comfortable as of yet to meet in person, you can still be involved in our meetings. The Zoom meeting will start at 12:15pm. Brooke will continue to send out the link through email. For those meeting in person, we will be following the guidelines that the state of Maryland has put in place. We will be ordering off the menu so no per-order is necessary.

Rotary Golf Tournament

Reminder…. The Golf Tournament will be held on May 20th at Fountainhead Country Club. The golf committee met yesterday and right now we have 102 golfers, and in fairly good shape with volunteers. However, there are still a few sponsorships left and we will also be doing the Silent Auction as well. If you or anyone you know like to help sponsor this event, Contact Blakeley Barker or myself. If you have anyone who would like to donate items for the event, please contact Stacey Miller or myself. The next meeting will be in April.

As of this point, we will be delivering food to Elizabeth Court or the Alexander House. The place and time will be determined.

WEEK 6 WHAT IS “EVERY ROTARIAN, EVERY YEAR” ALL ABOUT?

Foundation and its work.The Rotary Foundation Weekly Messages (July 2020) This initiative by the Board of Trustees of The Rotary Foundation encourages “every Rotarian, every year” to:

  1. Participate in a Foundation program that is making a difference in the world.

  2. Contribute to the Foundation’s Annual Fund at a sustainable amount The Rotary Foundation even has banners for clubs where every member contributes at least US $25 to the Annual Fund with a US $100 per capita during the Rotary year. Today nearly 1/3 of Rotarians participate in this initiative. In 2019/20 The Rotary Foundation was able to award over 1,300 global grants for large scale sustainable projects due to the generosity of these Rotarians. Think about what Rotary could accomplish in the world if all of our 1.2 million worldwide members each gave at least US $25 to our Foundation’s Annual Fund. If you are a part of the “Every Rotarian, Every Year” initiative – I personally thank
    you for your support of The Rotary

Again, Thank You to all the members, committee members and board members for your time and hard work to make our club great! Take care and stay safe.
