Opening Day, July 9!!
Jonnie and Bob conducted their first joint meeting for this Rotary year with a review of a survey sent to our members - about 50% responded (better than the average voting rate...).  Bob demonstrated his prowess with merging pie charts and power points, while Jonnie provided intermittent commentary.  Important points:
  • Large majority agreed that RSR should continue Zooming until Washoe cases decline rather than indoor in person meetings'
  • Most don't care where, as much as that RSR is together
  • Masks!  Yes!
  • No one disagreed we should have food and beverage, altho many were indifferent
  • There were suggestions for increasing in attendance once we resume in-person meetings
  • As far as growing membership, suggestions included participatory projects, increased awareness club and Rotary
  • Younger members, with a recognition we need a critical mass (Have you heard that Bob ordered a chicken and an egg from Amazon?  He'll let us know...)​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
There was more, and more comments--come to the meetings to get more than a summary!

Coronavirus and Community Service:
As Kate Nickolls noted, there are many ways that we normally support the community which have been taken away from us during this pandemic--but there are more needs than ever. She wants to share this touching article. It offers a way that we can support a very vulnerable community that is essential to getting food on our tables.
Catholic Charities of Santa Clara County is running the relief program. More info:
at the discovery museum
