Zoom Fatigue? Innovative Opportunities from the Field!

By Cynthia O’Neil on Tuesday, July 21, 2020

District Governor Cindi O’Neil has heard some very cool ideas recently from Clubs trying new ways to make membership during the COVID-19 pandemic fun, memorable, and all the while serving their communities too! Rotarian Ron Chandler of the Rotary Club of Lincoln City suggests the “Rotary Cache Mob.”

Club members mob their favorite restaurant, all on the same day, and order take out. One local restaurant owner reported that the 16 Rotary members who patronized his business made all the difference in his suffering cash flow that day. Same Club, different day, Lincoln City Rotarians cleaned a beach, maintaining safe social distancing. Members checked off items on their beach clean-up bingo cards. “Beach Bingo Winners” are then announced one evening during the Club’s Facebook Live event.

Fun, memorable, and “doing good” in their community. Bravo Rotary Club of Lincoln City! Click the bravo for the full story!

“Today, Nigeria’s complete documentation for Wild Polio virus free status was accepted by the Africa Regional Certification Commission for polio eradication (ARCC). “It is a historic day for Nigeria, Africa and the Global Polio Programme,’’ To read more from Rotary, click here.

Meeting in person – Important Survey


Dear Rotarian,

As we prepare to head back to our in person meetings, on July 14, it is very important to protect the health and comfort of all members. Please take the short (only 5 questions!) survey below. Club participation in this survey is important for a number of reasons, namely: to allow the board to make informed decisions and to get an idea of attendance.
 

Take the Survey

 

As a reminder here are the precautions already in place for in person meetings: 
1.  Tables in the room will be spaced at a minimum of 6 feet apart.
2.  There will be no more than 6 chairs/persons seated at each table. (this falls within the mandate that as an adult, if you chose to sit at that table, you are consenting and acknowledging to possible risks)
3.  Tables will not be preset with silverware, water or coffee.  There will be a beverage station for water, iced tea and coffee.  Wrapped silverware will be picked up at the buffet line.
4.  The buffet line will NOT be self service.  An RVCC employee(s), wearing masks and gloves will plate your food as requested.  According to RVCC, our buffett line is considered “cafeteria style” so it falls under different regulations than a “traditional buffet. “
5.  Each trip to the coffee or water station will require a new, clean cup.
6.  At our badge and payment table, we will provide hand sanitizer and will ask for individual spacing as we enter into the dining room.

Thank you for you cooperation!
In service, 
Erin Maxson

ROTARY – Virtual ZOOM meeting Tuesday, June 30th!

Dear Rotarian,
 

Beginnings and Endings. It gives me pause to think that this will be the last weekly email of my year as Club President. Reflecting on this past year, I feel that my Rotary journey has only just begun even when I find myself at the end of my term.

 

With the Rotary theme of the year being “Rotary Connects the World,” I feel that the goals I set at the beginning of the year to Connect within our own Club, to Connect with our Community, to Connect with other Rotary Clubs, and lastly to Connect with the World were fulfilled. Even COVID-19 could not prevent all the connection going on!

 

This week we have Margot Devillers from Belgium, our Rotary Foreign Exchange Student, presenting on her year with us and her perspective after living here, before she returns to home to Belgium. Please join me and your Rotary family in an afternoon of fellowship with your favorite lunch on hand. This is your last chance to ZOOM with me!

 

If you have yet to try out ZOOM, it is easy! Just download the free ZOOM app on your laptop, smartphone, or tablet. Practice with family and friends! Please feel free to share this ZOOM link with friends and family that may be interested in hearing more about our Club. Here is a quick tutorial on how to join a ZOOM meeting:
