ROTARY CLUB OF
|Immediate PP||Cathie Brumfield|
This week, we'll have a Thirsty Thursday celebration like none other ever!
The live setting is a familiar one - the Dunwoody Country Club. Festivities begin at 6:00 pm; everyone at the Country Club will be treated by the Club to a beverage and appetizers. Your spouse or a guest is welcome to attend! Immediate Past President Cathie will share her thoughts about the year and present some awards starting at about 6:45 pm. And you can greet President Cathie's family who is pictured here (photo by Ritchie).
We selected Dunwoody Country Club because it offers the social distancing we think makes it safer for us to meet in person. Masks will be required. We will have masks and hand sanitizer available. The Country Club will take temperatures at the front door - anyone with a temperature of 100 or more will be asked to leave. DCC staff (with masks and gloves) will provide cafeteria style appetizer service and pre-rolled silverware, water and such will be available at DCC-manned stations in the meeting room.
Want to Join by Zoom ... would you be our host?
We'd love to provide the option for those who can't or aren't comfortable with attending in person to join us by Zoom. To do that, we need someone to be our Zoom host - to open the Zoom meeting and let people in. Let President Ardy or Past President Cathie know if you're willing to host. If we find a Zoom host before tomorrow afternoon, we'll send an email to the club with connection information.
Last Friday marked the start of a new Rotary Year - with the installation of President Ardy Bastien and his Board of Directors. District Governor Kirk Driskell and Immediate PDG Jim Squire were both on hand at our first in-person meeting since March 6. DG Kirk installed Ardy and his board.
Ardy challenged us all to look for ways we can make a difference in the community. "With all that's going on today, Rotary opens the opportunity to make a bigger difference than ever - let us know how you think we can help."
We welcomed three new members, with Membership Chair Fred Brandt saying that "they didn't think our attendance requirements of one live meeting every five months was too onerous. Be sure to introduce yourself to Kristi LoVerde (sponsored by Charlie Augello), Jeff Hanson (sponsored by Fred Brandt) and Peyton Adkins-Graham (sponsored by Jackie Cuthbert).
We're all looking forward to getting together but still concerned about protecting each other from the coronavirus. The CDC has published some guidelines for how to use your mask effectively.
