The headline says it all. Well, most of it, anyway.
We’ve scheduled a 6 p.m. Zoom session for Thursday, September 9, our first club meeting of the fall. As was the case for most of the past Rotary Year, simply go to the website’s calendar page and click on the meeting link for that date to automatically gain access to the meeting.
Efforts are under way to find a temporary venue for our in-person weekly dinner meetings. If all goes well, that activity could begin the following week, September 16. Details will be provided to all members once arrangements are finalized.
However, we still are discussing other possibilities — various dining sites, alternating in-person and Zoom sessions, etc. — because of the vagaries of the ongoing pandemic strictures. So, keep checking the website for updates.
Meanwhile, several etiquette items to remember to avoid confusion and give everyone a chance to be heard when we hold virtual meetings.
• When the meeting is called to order by President Debbie Rodriguez, or other presiding officer, please mute your audio.
• If you wish to make a comment, ask a question, etc., please raise your hand to gain the presiding officer’s attention. When called upon, then unmute your audio. When you are finished, re-mute.
• Please try to participate from a location without a lot of background noise (TV volume, barking dogs, clamoring kids, random gunfire, snoring, etc.). ZOOM has very good sound pickup and extraneous noise can be heard by everyone.
Thanks for your attention. We hope to see everyone on September 9.
