Mark Your Calendars for July
Starting with Installation of Officers on July 10
President Cathie, President-Elect Ardy and your Board of Directors have been carefully considering our plans for the immediate future. While most if not all of us miss the opportunity to get together face-to-face, we are 100% committed to doing that safely. Here's what we're thinking for the next few weeks:
- Our next regular meeting will be July 10 - and we will hold it in person at the Dunwoody Country Club. Ardy and our officers and directors will be installed for the new Rotary Year - and we plan to welcome our three new members who have joined during the pandemic. DCC is the only place that can accommodate us right now with the social distancing we think makes it safer for us to meet in person. We will require masks - and 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 food service and pre-rolled silverware, water and such will be available at DCC-manned stations in the meeting room. There will be plexi-glass shields between you and food servers.
- Our next Thirsty Thursday - on July 16 - will also be at the Dunwoody Country Club. This will be our year-end celebration, and President Cathie will present awards for the 2019-20 Rotary year. We'll be back with more details - just know that all the same precautions described above will be in place for the July 16 event.
- Our July 24 meeting is also likely to be at the Dunwoody Country Club - a breakfast meeting with Police Chief Billy Grogan as our speaker.
We recognize that this is an individual decision for everyone - and that people are in different places with regard to how quickly we move out of "shelter in place." We would like to hear your concerns and ideas, and are ready to try to answer any questions you may have.
We are also exploring the possibility of keeping a Zoom option for attending in place for those who aren't yet ready for in-person meetings and will keep you posted on our progress.
