ZOOM meetings are becoming easy-peasy. It is great to see everyone up close and we have all learned the etiquette of virtual participation. President Charlotte has done an outstanding job of planning the agenda and conducting the meetings. We all miss Francis and Happy Dollars as it affords an opportunity to connect and learn more about each other. After listening to our rendition of Happy Birthday, it leads one to wonder if choir practice would be helpful. Perhaps Eugene can give some instruction. There were 36 participants at this week’s meeting.

We welcomed to the meeting Ellie Patterson, District Governor, and Bruce Monroe of the Tubac Club.

Announcements made:

· Charlotte reminded everyone of the District 5500 Rotary Virtual Convention to occur from June 20 through June 26. There is no enrollment fee but you must register to participate. Watch for more details.

· Save the date for the District 5500 luncheon to be held on Sunday June 28. Diane Ventura-Goodyear will be recognized for her years of service. You must register before June 21.

· District 5500 just released an email outlining their Covid 19 recommendations. Some of the highlights of those recommendations are for clubs to continue to hold virtual meetings. Once in-person meetings resume, clubs are encouraged to offer live streaming of the weekly meetings for those members that choose not to attend in person. At this time in-person meetings will not be mandatory for club members. Please read the email message for all of the details.

· Valle Verde ZOOM meetings will continue until July 1. Once meetings resume in person, certain protocols will be followed to insure the safety and well-being of those in attendance.

· Mary Fisher announced that Robert Medina, a Rotoract student, graduated from John Hopkins University. With so many choices for this talented young man, Robert has yet to firm up his plans for post graduate studies.

District Conference News 20200527

As many of you already know, the 2020 District Conference for our Rotary District 5500 will be held on September 11th/12th 2020 at the Tubac Golf Resort and Spa. There will be a wide variety of breakouts relating to new Rotary directions in the year 2020-2021.

We are planning to include both Interact and Rotaract members in this District Conference. This will add to the overall cost of the Conference. To address this issue, I am asking every club in District 5500 to consider either a donation or a sponsorship to help with these additional costs.

Three options

v The Club could choose to either donate or sponsor the District Conference. Depending on the level of sponsorship, Clubs could promote upcoming or rescheduled signature events with an advertisement in the Conference Program book.

v Club members who are business owners might want to support Rotary by selecting a suitable sponsorship level. In return, they would be added to the Conference Program Book showing a suitable advertisement for their business.

v Local businesses can also advertise or sponsor in the program.

I have included the proposed sponsorship levels and their particular benefits on page 2. Deadline August 5th.

Yours in Rotary,

Diane Ventura-Goodyear

Rotary District 5500 Governor 2020-2021
