Our Virtual Meeting Nights.
We have successfully navigated two Zoom meetings and Peter gave us a great presentation on Tuesday night. We have scheduled meetings every Tuesday night for the next few weeks.
If you are a visitor or another Rotarian who would like to join us for the Zoom meeting. Send us an email and the secretary will forward the Zoom meeting details to you.
I have attached some simple Zoom Meeting instructions for our meeting nights, for those that might just need a little bit of help.

From the Desk of President Alfie
Dear fellow members,
Based on advice received from Rotary International President, and taking into consideration the age demographic, along with the compromised immune systems of member/s, I have made an executive decision to suspend meetings for the next month. This will be reviewed as and when necessary.
This decision has not been taken lightly, but has been the result of recommendations from WHO and governing bodies.
Zoom meetings will be organised in lieu of physical meeting.
FYI: An extract from a recent email received from Mark Maloney is below:
In the meantime, this is an opportunity for us to demonstrate that Rotary Connects the World in innovative ways. We should be closely following the advice of the WHO and local health authorities. Again, this includes canceling Rotary club events and meetings in the short term to reduce unnecessary interactions that could cause infections. We can put a greater emphasis on the work we do in our communities by helping our less fortunate neighbors cope with the effects of isolation and fear, or by supporting our health authorities to address this situation.
We are dealing with this situation in real time. Please visit the rotary.org COVID-19 response page for ongoing updates.
This is an unprecedented challenge for nearly all of us. But it is also an opportunity for Rotarians to find new, meaningful ways to lead individuals and communities to connect and do good in the world.
We have never been prouder to be part of an organization that does so much to protect and strengthen our communities, at home and across the globe.
