President's Corner
Hello All My Rotarian Friends,

Last week International Rotary President Holger Knaack spoke to our club members along with other Rotarian guests. Almost 200 people attended including several Rotarians from other countries. What a privilege to hear him speak!  Holger’s charm, wit and engaging smile made him an instant audience favorite, but it was his passion for Rotary and willingness to take on the challenge of building membership during the pandemic that inspired me to be a better Rotarian.  To build a stronger membership, Knaack says, Rotary must focus on increasing the number of young and diverse members and transitioning Rotaractors into Rotarians. The responsibility to keep Rotary vital falls to each of us.   Please invite guests to visit our club and apply to for membership. Furthermore, welcome guests and new members into our club with a generous spirit. Spread kindness to all members, embodying the Four Way Test.
This is what makes Suburban simply the best, better than all the rest.

See you on Thursday!
Mary Bernier
You must pre-register to attend the 8/13 Meeting at Anthony's
Thursday, August 13th will be our first meeting back at Anthony's.  You must be pre-registered to attend. At this time, only people eating lunch are able to attend.   Cost is $17 and will be plated.  Consider purchasing a lunch ticket to make weekly registration easier.   If you already have a lunch ticket, please just send Jennifer an email or call to register. 
This week's menu is salad, London broil, smashed potatoes, and green beans. 
Zoom Facilitators Needed 
We are looking for volunteers to handle the following aspects of Zoom meetings as we start up hybrid meetings:
1.) Login in as the Host and start the meeting (must have a hard line connection- not wifi.) 
2.) Start the meeting livestream to Facebook/recording
3.) Identify and admit people from the waiting room. Rename users if needed 
4.) Run slideshows, videos, etc.  
We will need 2 people to help with this each week. Looking for a group of about 10 to rotate these responsibilities.   Please let Jennifer know if we can add you to the list. 
How to Join Us Online 
Please plan to join us this Thursday at noon for our regular meeting.  The meeting will open at 11:45 for greetings.  Mary will ring the bell at 12:10 on 8/13.

In-Person Meetings- Please read! 
President Mary Bernier announced last week that the Board has decided to move forward with resuming in-person meetings on Thursday, August 13th with safety protocols in place and as long as there are no changes to directives from the health department and state government.   Meetings will continue in a hybrid format offering both online participation and in-person participation.   We know that not everyone can or will be comfortable with attending meetings in-person so the plan is to continue to offer both formats going forward.
In person meetings protocols:
1.) Timing: In-person meeting at Anthony's will begin on Thursday, August 13th.   We will require sign-ups in advance for all attending no later than noon the day before. 
2.)  Meals: All those attending in-person will be required to purchase lunch. Anthony's will not allow us to have people who are not eating in the facility at this time. The cost for the meal is going up as it will now be plated and served.  Meal cost will be $17.  You can arrive anytime after 11:15. Salads will be pre-set on the tables at 11:30 and meals will be served at noon.  Serving meals at the same time will ensure food temperature and quality.   Anthony's employees will be masked and gloved. 
4.) Seating will be somewhat socially distanced.   We will be using a larger space, spreading out tables, and limiting the number of people at each table.  We will ask that you remain at your table for the meeting. 
5.)  Masks: Greeters will meet you at the entrance and offer you hand sanitizer when you enter. We ask everyone to wear masks arriving and departing.  You can remove your mask to eat when you are seated. 
6.) Badges will put out for those registered to attend a meeting. We will ask you then to keep your badge with you for the foreseeable future. (Leaving it in your car is the best way not to lose it!). We are trying to minimize contact and having everyone keep his/her own badge helps with that.
7.) Attendance:  Attendance requirements are not in force, however, we will recognize those who have achieved 100% attendance regardless of whether that is online or in-person.  Since we don't have a good way of tracking this, it will be on the honor system.     There will be no scanning of badges for attendance.
8.) Payments: In order to minimize risks, we are going to move away from handling cash at Rotary meetings.  We will ask that you either pay for your meeting online or purchase a lunch ticket.  You can also bring a check made out for the correct amount to a meeting but you must still register in advance.   This will include fines, duck for a buck, and brag for bucks. There is a link on the home page top right corner to pay these- you are on the honor system- paying fines helps our local Foundation.
In summary, you are important to Suburban Rotary and we will meet you wherever you are with health and safety concerns. We understand that not everyone can or will want to attend in-person meetings.  For that reason, we are investing in technology and soliciting volunteers to bring you the best hybrid meeting experience also. We hope you will share with those you know the value of Rotary in your life and business. We hope to use the hybrid meetings as a recruiting tool, allowing people to participate while traveling or when work or other situations do not allow for in-person attendance. 
We look forward to seeing you in person or online!
