  • RI is in the midst of this year's virtual International Convention.  Leonore “attended” a couple of sessions the past weekend:
    • On Saturday she learned about Rotary history, including the role of Rotary in starting the United Nations 75 years ago.
    • Rotary's experience in eradication of Polio will help with the international effort to fight COVID-19.
    • The Rotary president made a statement about the importance of being a fully inclusive organization.   There was a focus on how to include Rotarians’ families in our activities.  In the near future, Rotary will focus on technology to keep us connected and keep our projects moving forward.  Rotary will open meetings to “the world”. 
    • Leonore suggested signing up for other presentations coming up that would be of value for our Club members.  She was very impressed with the presentations she viewed.
    • Go to the RI website to link to the Convention.  You will need to register, but can attend any of the sessions you wish.  Many of the sessions will be “on-demand” at a later time. 
  • News from Conifer High School:  Wes invites us to visit the new CHS (without pets) track with “social-distancing”.  The baseball field is completed.  The auxiliary gym is being built.  The library is still closed; a book-mobile is scheduled to come to the campus.  Fund-raising is going on to build bleacher seating for 1500; they are $7000 short at this time.
