May and June Schedule
Over the past two months Rotarians have demonstrated their ability to adapt to change as we learn how to stay connected in a COVID-19 world. We have been learning to use on-line platforms like Zoom in place of regular face to face meetings, which has allowed us to continue the work of Rotary. Given the continuing concerns with group meetings, we have made the decision to continue the suspension of in person meetings through to the end of June. We are intending, wherever possible, to replace those meetings with online Zoom meetings. 
The health and safety of our members, their families and our community is our first and foremost priority. We are monitoring messages and guidance from public health authorities and following/implementing changes as appropriate for our organization. 
Dates and details for upcoming replacement meetings will be added regularly on our Home Page as we have more information. 
Other Updates:
Rotary International
Rotary International is providing regular updates on COVID-19. Most recently, RI has announced changes to the grants programs to provide funding for projects related to COVID-19. The details can be found in this link:
District 7080 
Our District 7080 website is also providing regular updates on COVID-19 and information about what Rotarians in our District and around the world are doing to adapt to COVID-19. There are some very creative ideas and also opportunities to visit with Rotary clubs online to learn more. 
Zoom Meetings
In the absence of face to face meetings we are using Zoom Meetings. For each meeting, an invitation is sent in advance to join. If you are not a club member and are interested in attending an upcoming Zoom meeting as a guest, please contact our club Secretary, Bill Proctor to have your name added to the invitation. 
Your understanding of the need for these changes and your support for the work of Rotary is appreciated.
