This week's Thanksgiving meeting will be at the Plaza. Our blue cart buckets will be on the tables if you would like to make a contribution to Vashti.
Fran Milberg will speak to us about the Rotary Foundation. The Rotary Foundation transforms your gifts into service projects that change lives both close to home and around the world.
Following are highlights from the November 12 Rotary Board Meeting:
Our club is looking for places to hold Whine and Wine for the dates of December 1, March 2, April 6, May 4 and June 1. The Club will supply the wine and pay for hors d'oeuvres. All you need to do is open your home or business for a couple of hours. Numbers range from 10 - 20 Rotarians.
For those wishing to give a donation in the memory of Tom Callaway it can be done by visiting GoFundMe.com/Tom Callawaymemorial fund or simply write a check to Tom Callaway Memorial Fund and give it to Teri White.
Even though Robert Vice is new to our club, he is not new to Rotary. He comes to us having been a member of other clubs over several years. Which means he has experience that our club can benefit from.
We had a combined attendance of sixty-five at the meeting last week. There was forty-two at the Plaza and twenty-three on Zoom. Let’s make sure we follow CDC guidelines as we work our way back to in-person meetings. We want to also keep in our prayers and thoughts those recovering from surgery and the families of those who have lost loved ones.
Scooter gave us a brief history of Sunshine and how it has changed over the years. I know time was a factor, but maybe next time more details about the purpose of Sunshine can be shared. This might be helpful for newer members who may not know what Sunshine is or what its purpose is. Just something to consider.
Our Program speaker was Liza Donnelly. She was introduced and interviewed by Lauren Radford. Great job with the interview. Thanks, Laruen, for not feeling compelled to stay on the beaten path. Liza is an American cartoonist and writer, best known for her work in The New Yorker magazine. She is also resident cartoonist of CBS News. Liza is the creator of digital live drawing, which is a new form of journalism where she draws using a tablet, and shares impressions and visual reports of events and news instantly on social media.
