Notes from May 5, 2020
Bon Voyage Clementine!
Fifty-seven members and guests gathered on-line to hear from Clementine and host parents Harriet and Tom Bollig, Amy and Nathan Nyren and Lori Thune and Blake Cadwallader who were on tap as the third host family but Covid-19 derailed those plans. Jane McGinty shared a video including several of Clementine’s new friends from EPHS. We heard stories beginning with the fact that Clementine’s luggage did not arrive until ten days after she did and many of her experiences. Clementine shared a recorded cello performance and Clementine’s parents shared thank you to Rotary for welcoming Clementine and sharing the many experiences with her.
Watch the website and emails for links to several upcoming joint and special meetings that can be attended via Zoom. Nathan Nyren encouraged members who have not yet taken the opportunity to join the weekly zoom meetings and for members to reach out to fellow Rotarians. Tim Connors participated in virtual rotary training. Aaron Casper updated members on Be the Bridge EPAM Rotary Foundation fundraising efforts and reported that we have received $10,430 of the $15,750 pledged which bridges the financial gap left by decision to not hold Vino Classico this year.
