Our fearless leader, Amy Wilkerson was absent due to illness today so Scott Jones filled in. Get well soon, Amy.
For those of you who haven’t heard, Mayor Robert Williams’ wife passed away suddenly last week. Please keep him and his family in your prayers.
We “sang” to Jason McKnight for his birthday.
Happy Rotary anniversary to Bill Schroder (48 years!) and Brian Drane (5 years).
Our meeting was brief but informative today. Scott Jones showed us how to attend an “e-meeting”. As you know, per our membership agreements, members must maintain at least 60% attendance. This attendance can be obtained through attendance at regular meetings, attending meetings as a visitor at other Rotary clubs, or made up though participating in a club service project, attending a board meeting, or through an “e-meeting”. On our club website, there are links to two different e-meeting sites. There may be others you can use. If you go to one of the sites, you can make-up a meeting by spending at least thirty minutes watching videos and/or reading articles on a wide range of topics. After doing so, you will fill out a brief form, after which the site will send a record of your attendance to our club secretary, Janet Silvus, so she can record your make-up.
Don’t forget to vote today!
“Elections belong to the people. It’s their decision. If they decide to turn their back on the fire and burn their behinds, then they will just have to sit on their blisters.”
Abraham Lincoln (1809-1865)
“The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.”
Winston Churchill (1874-1965)
It’s only the primary, but here is Schoolhouse Rock to tell us how the Electoral College works:
