County Health Department Update
The County Health Department is strongly recommending that anyone over the age of two (2) wear a mask in public indoor spaces AND at indoor private gatherings. This guidance also applies to those who have been vaccinated.  Hand sanitizer will be at each table for your convenience. Meals will be plated and served to you.
This Week at Rotary: Annual Meeting and Game: Puttin on the Lips
VOTE for the incoming officers and board members.
Then sit back and be ready to enjoy lip-sync acts aimed to please! You will vote with dollars for the winner. The winning act gets to choose to which not-for-profit to donate the dollars.
Be prepared for surprise performers and a bit of humor. Bring your dollars and be ready for some fun! 
VENMO $$ during the show will be donated to the winning act's not-for-profit choice.
Last Week at Rotary: DEI Committee and Mai Chao Duddeck
What a pleasure to hear from Mai Chao and what an resource we have in our community for our DEI Committee. At the heart of Mai Chao’s research interest is creating culturally engaging environments that welcome inclusion and belonging. She is passionate about working collectively with leaders across communities to close the health disparities gap while fostering belonging for all.
A few Rotarian reviews:
  • Thank you Mai Chao for a great presentation and keep up the great work.
  • Mai is a treasure to our community and a great resource for DEI strategies.
A link to Mai's book, Gathering Fireflies, is below.
