News from the Meeting, April 9 via Zoom:
17 RSR members joined our Zoom Town Hall meeting!  
Prez Kyle led the meeting.  We spent time catching up...
Adam Heuer told us he was very busy working at home, as was 95% of his staff, but business was good.  Then he dropped a little bombshell, for which he "went to the bell"
Welcome to Reno South, Graham!  No one can doubt Adam's commitment to Reno South--he attended a club meeting shortly after the birth of his son!
Heidi Howe explained that the Girl Scouts are meeting virtually too., and that scouts can earn a "Social Distance Patch" virtually as well.  (And you can still buy Girl Scout cookies online.)
Burnell Reliford paid a fine to apologize to Jonnie by trying to giver her a hug in the grocery store parking lot--social distancing guys!!
Matt Buehler introduced us to his companion Guinness Stout (a dog, not a beer)
Kyle Whaley is quarantined for 2 weeks, having been exposed directly to someone with the virus.  He's loving doing everything by secure laptop at home...
Jonnie paid $25 to highlight that she cannot be called technologically challenged any more, since she hosted the Zoom meeting
Doug Rands is dealing with motions and injunctions from prisoners petitioning to be released due to the virus.
Bob Hardenbrook took a Zoom class in Decluttering Your Home.  Guess what he's been doing?
Masih Madoni is having virtual Boy Scout campouts with Diego
Joel Muller is working long hours due to market conditions.  He has information about the Cares Act and how it can assist businesses and individuals--call him if he can help. And he advises that when working at home the same time as your spouse, "don't bring a spatula to a knife fight..."
Alex Davis has a birthday! And an anniversary!  And surgery! He's not doing anything special except walking the dog--he's been immunocompromised since he exited the hospital, so social distancing is old hat to him.  He also advised that the Reno Rodeo is on hold for now.  Guess bull riding isn't Zoomable.
Important for us to know:
- We are looking for ideas for hands-on service projects to take place after we are able to reassemble with normal social distances!  Suggestions so far include Food Bank, tree planting, Robinhood Park maintenance.  Do YOU have an idea??  Please let Adrienne know: athomle@msn.com or 763.438.2327 (m)
NEXT MEETING IS APRIL 16 AT 12:30 P.M. VIA ZOOM.  Invitation and link will be sent before the meeting.

Surviving with Grace
