April 2nd, 2021

Happy Friday. I have been experimenting with some new formatting for this bulletin. In creating a new format, the settings got changed and this didn't get sent out to all members on Tuesday. I am really sorry about that. There is some really good content that I didn't want you to miss, like Katie Berkedal's birthday today.  So, I am resending it.  As I tweak this new format, please let me know if there are things you cannot find.
In Service,
Jamie O'Neill

Last Week at Rotary
President Andy presented to Creston Valley Rotary Club from British Columbia, Canada last Tuesday and they presented to us on Thursday.  This is a "club meeting exchange".  Dave Handy (their Club President) took a liking to Andy's published Rotary Moment videos.  Andy and Dave decided to make a meeting exchange happen.
