Suburban Rotary Annual Fundraiser- Special Announcement
Join us live this Thursday to hear a special message from our local Suburban Rotary Foundation Fundraising Chair, Jeff Moran.  Suburban Rotary has plan to help the local community with food insecurity issues caused by the attempts to fight COVID-19.    We know you will want to be a part of this effort. Join us Thursday!

1.) You can join via our Zoom meeting by clicking on this link or pasting it into your browser.
This will allow us to see your face on camera (if you want- this is always an option to turn it off-everyone will be off once the speaker starts).  Download Zoom to your phone or computer now so you are ready.

Last week re-cap
Last week we had our first virtual meeting.  Between  those who participated via Zoom and watched the video later we had nearly 100 participants including visitors from other clubs and our District Governor Mick McKinley.  Roxy Orr gave us an update on the activities of Rotary at the District and International level during COVID-19.  We heard a top ten list from Secretary Joe "the Italian Stallion" Sequenzia.  Rotarians Terry Ferguson and Ward Peters told us about their trip to Europe and Morocco and how they were evacuated by the State Department when Morocco had shut down all incoming and outgoing flights due to the virus outbreak.

Support our Friends at Anthony's 
Obviously Anthony's will be missing our business as well as that of many other groups.   If you would like to help them and the workers, consider order takeout from them.   Their menu can be found by clicking HERE.    You can call 402-331-7575 and place your order on the phone and they will bring it out to you.   All tips are being put into a pool for all the servers, so be generous!
