MEETING NOTES: Roberto Martinez reported that he has spoken with people at the District level who say that most of the clubs in 7190 are not meeting in person.

She and Becky Raymond, our Rotaract liaisons, will keep us up to date. … Kevin Leyhane said he reports back to work on Monday and can provide a program by the end of September on what life is like in the “trenches” of a local school district in this era of COVID-19. … Roberto offered to assist anyone having difficulty accessing ZOOM with a brief tutorial. …
