MEETING NOTES: President Dick Drumm welcomed members virtually. … Treasurer Murray Forth said Carol Orvis has donated $1,200 to the club treasury. She had been awarded that amount in lieu of winning the Cafe Capriccio wine dinner raffle; the raffle went on as planned, but the COVID-19 shutdown of the restaurant killed the dinner. … Dick said he wants to hold a Board discussion at the end of the month to evaluate what service projects we can carry out with whatever money we have raised from summer events, personal pledges, and other sources so far in the 2020-21 Rotary Year. …

Dean and Doris reported that the recent Gift of Life Golf Tournament netted about $14,000 for the pediatric medical philanthropic organization. Unfortunately, the Albany club’s annual Christmas dinner that usually raised about $5,000 for GOL has been cancelled for this year. … Jim and Roberto reported they have sold 75 of their initial supply of 100 bars of specialty soaps as a fundraising effort. A second batch of 100 has been ordered. The handmade scented soaps sell for $7 each or three for $20. They underwrote the $3-per-bar purchase, meaning that 100% of the sale price of each bar goes directly to the club. Details on the soaps are available on the website.

Our next ZOOM meeting is scheduled for 7 p.m. Thursday, October 15. Members will be sent a link to the session.
