SRC’s next general meeting is set for 6 p.m. this Thursday (September 3) via the ZOOM virtual meeting app. We have a lot to discuss, and President Dick Drumm will keep everyone in the loop by providing a report on a variety of decisions made at this week’s Board meeting .
A connecting link will be sent to you in advance of the session, at which our special guest will be District 7190 Governor Richard Griesche. He will provide an update on what is going on throughout the District during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
At a meeting of the SRC Board of Directors this evening (Monday), it was decided that we will continue gathering via ZOOM for the forseeable future since it is impossible to hold in-person dinner meetings given the state restrictions on such gatherings, the closing and impending sale of Quigley’s where we have been meeting for a number of years, and the apprehension of many members about such gatherings, given the health concerns engendered by the pandemic.
While we have been experiencing strong attendance at our ZOOM meetings throughout the summer, we urge those of you who have not participated to re-involve yourselves in Rotary. Our community and international service will not end because of the pandemic. Rotary endures no matter what, as it has for more than 115 years.
The process of staying involved is simple. Just download the ZOOM app and you’ll be able to sign in. If you have any questions about the process or the etiquette of getting involved via the virtual process, Board member Roberto Martinez has volunteered to guide members through it. Contact him via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or by phone (518-396-7250) in advance of the Thursday session.
Stay well, stay hopeful, and stay involved.
