Chair of the Day: Dan Wellendorf
Invocator: Bryant Morrison 
Last week re-cap
Last week Max Burbach gave the invocation.  We had several announcements and Mary Bernier introduced Al Batschalet and Jodi Teal who talked to us about the First Responders Foundation and all they do to promote the health and well-being of our front line responders. 
Annual Fundraiser- Close the Gap! 
In lieu of our Annual Fundraiser for the Suburban Rotary Charitable Foundation, Suburban Rotary is looking to help our neighbors by "Closing the Gap" and raising fundsfor the Food Bank of the Heartland.  Demand at food banks and pantries around the metro area has skyrocketed in the last two weeks due to hardships caused by the COVID-19 virus.     
Last week we received excellent news that we have received $2500 in a District Grant to help our efforts and $7500 in a Club Grant from our Suburban Rotary Charitable Foundation.  This brings us to $44,000 in donations and pledges.  If you are able, please consider a gift in any amount by clicking on the donate button on our website or by sending in a check to Suburban Rotary, 4089 South 84th St. PMB 317, Omaha, NE 68127.  (Call Jennifer to set up a monthly pledge.) 
Thank you to all those who have pledged or donated so far! Our goal is 100% participation with any amount- so far we are at 35% with 70 donors.   Thank you! 
How can we serve?

Now is the Perfect Time to Invite Guests to Rotary! 
Just because we are not meeting in person, doesn't mean we can't host guests at Suburban Rotary meetings. In fact, now is the perfect time to invite someone to "visit" us at a virtual meeting.  Be sure to send Jennifer the name of your guest in advance so she knows to let them in via the "waiting room" on Zoom.  A visitor can learn about the fantastic service Rotary provides to the community especially during these tough times and the fellowship and friendship that being a Rotarian offers.   Just direct folks to the website to get all of the information to join us.  If they don't want to join via Zoom, encourage your guest to watch our livestream on Facebook and leave a comment for us.  
Virtual After Hours- Trivia Night!
Save the date! Thursday, April 16th from 5-7 pm we will have a virtual after hours featuring a Trivia Night game.  An email is coming out on Tuesday with instructions on how to participate.   
Suburban Rotary Wins! 
Last week Russell Hampton, Rotary merchandise supplier, put out a call to Rotary Clubs to see how they were helping their communities during the COVID-19 crisis. President Tom Kerfoot nominated us and we won for  our "Close the Gap" fundraiser for the Food Bank and our blood drives. We won a $250 gift card which will be used to purchase pins, badges, and other club supplies regularly. Thank you and congratulations to all of you!
