This Week's Meeting 3/25
In-person meetings will resume on April 8th.  Until then, we will be meeting Thursday 7:30AM on Zoom and an email will go out to members with the link prior to the meeting.   Our speaker this week will be Weber Karsay.
Welcome Michael Young!!!
At our last meeting, Michael Young was sworn in as our newest member.  Since the ceremony was done virtually, we will providing him with the lapel pin, badge, club banner and secret handshake at an upcoming meeting in April. Congratulations!!!!
Habitat For Humanity
Our club has been slotted to work at the Habitat for Humanity site on Willow Rd on Tuesday May 11th from 9AM - 2PM.  We will need ten volunteers and a sign up sheet will be posted shortly.  Any questions, ask Sharon Prosinksi.
50/50 Tickets 
It's that time of year again ... almost spring ... Trees are sprouting leaf buds and the birds are chirping; and at the club, white envelopes are sprouting 50/50 ticket stubs all the while the spring breeze echoes Bill Beachell’s clarion call to "Sell your tickets!"  This year, as is everything else, it's a bit different. We are working with the District to sell 50/50 tickets.  It's a larger pot, more prizes, and they are doing much of the work pulling it together.  Our only obligation is to sell 500 tickets.   The proceeds from our sales go directly to beef up the pot of money in the Foundation that we use for the Giving Budget.  In short, it's a win/win.  All members have received an email informing them that this year there is a requirement to sell a minimum of 5 tickets.  Here are the selling instructions:

Jean Harris Award Nominations
District 7475 is seeking nominations for the Jean Harris Award.  Named after the wife of Rotary International founder Paul Harris, the award honors one non-Rotarian who has made a significant contribution to the development and progress of others in their communities.
Like And Share
A request from our Public Relations Director Heather Achenbach - please like and share the posts on our club Facebook page!!  It's a numbers game. The more people that like and share posts, the more the posts will be visible to community members and the more likely that we can attract new members.   
Montgomery Twp Food Pantry
Thank you for your support for the Montgomery Township Food Pantry and the Families in Need holiday programs.  Due to COVID, the Montgomery Twp Food Pantry will not be collecting ingredients for Spring Meal Baskets this year.  In lieu of this, they ask if you can do one of the following:
Eventgroove Roundtable
Our webmaster, Matt Romanowski, has been attending all the Eventgroove training sessions but I still encourage members to participate in the upcoming Eventgroove Roundtable on March 26th at 4pm via Zoom.  This event is less about technical aspects of the platform and more about showcasing different fundraising events that have been successfully held by other Rotary clubs across the country.  To register, click HERE
Advertise On Our Website!
Kevin Lynch just started advertising his business on our website.  Be like Kevin!  For information on rates and procedure, go the home page of our website and download the website sponsorship guide found on the right hand side of the page.  There will be a limited number of rotating ads and club members will get first crack at the opportunity before it is opened to the general public.  Proceeds from ad sales will be used to offset the club's website and communications expenses.  Any questions, ask the webmaster Matt Romanoski.
President's Message: Zoom Fatigue
In the process of trying to avoid COVID-19, I have instead developed a serious case of Zoom fatigue.  Don’t get me wrong – I am grateful to Zoom for providing us a means in which we can keep up our weekly meetings going.  But a Zoom meeting is just not the same as meetings in person.  It’s harder to establish camaraderie and much harder to attract new members (though we did manage to add a new member who is joining the club this week – welcome Michael Young!).
