We have been meeting via ZOOM on Tuesdays at 8:00 am.  There has been some talk about moving our meetings to 7:15 am as originally scheduled.  I'd, like to get your feedback on the start times.  I know some of you work and the 8:00 am start does not fit your schedule.
 
We want to have a meeting time that would yield the most attendees.
 
PLEASE COMPLETE THIS SHORT SURVEY FOR START TIMES!
 
Clock 7:15 | ClipArt ETC   OR  Clock 8:00 | ClipArt ETC
 
 
We are having a Happy Hour via Zoom on Friday, May 8th at 5:00 pm.  Anyone is welcome to join us for some social time and drinking!  BYOB.
 
 
 

We are accepting nominations for Service Above Self Awards 2020.  We discussed this at our meeting today.  We are accepting nominations for people who may be associated with a business that have gone above and beyond their "job" to help with the COVID-19 response.   
 
The nominations will still be individuals.  For example, James and Robert Baerwolf, from Sassy Cow, have been nominated for donating milk to food pantries, providing for community meals and self serve access to free milk at their farm store.
 
We know there are more businesses/organizations out there doing "above and beyond" AND "Service Above Self." 
 
Please submit nominations by June 2nd!
 
 

We are looking for Guest Speakers to attend our Zoom meetings.  If you previously had a speaker scheduled and had to cancel, please reach out and see if they would like to present at a future Zoom meeting.
 
Check our Speaker List to see what's coming up.
 

I'm still looking for host families for Joachim Milczarczyk from POLAND.  If you know of any families interested in having him be part of their family for 4 months, please let me know!

We are going to start up our Classification Talks.  I will contact you in advance and let you know when you are scheduled to give your talk.  We are going in alpha order by last name.  I still have Rose F. and Svetha H. that were previously scheduled but not done.

At today's meeting we watched a short video from a great speaker about her experience in Rotary and how she has made an impact on her club, district, and community.  She offers good advice to help keep us engaged and stay in Rotary longer.  CLICK HERE to watch it.
 

 
Have a great week and I will see you either on Friday night for Happy Hour or on Tuesday at our meeting.
 
Yours in Rotary,

Rotary Meeting Zoom Link (Tuesdays):   https://zoom.us/j/964291657

 
The Colonial Club will remain closed through May 26th.  That means our club will continue meeting remotely via ZOOM until this time and possibly longer.
 
Our meetings are scheduled on Tuesdays at 8:00 am via ZOOM.
 
 
We have decided to postpone the "Service Above Self" Awards Ceremony until June 30th.  This will also extend the timeline for nominations and voting.  We are accepting nominations until June 2nd.  CLICK HERE to enter a nomination.
 
Last week, our club donated $2,000 to The Colonial Club to help support their home delivered meals program.
 
 
The Sun Prairie Foundation will be making other donations to Sunshine Place and The Boys & Girls Club of Sun Prairie.  Our club also applied for a District Grant for up to $1,000 for The Sunshine Place Food Pantry.  
 
As president, I get $1,000 to spend on projects of my choice.  $500 will go to The Boys & Girls Club of Sun Prairie and $500 will go to Rotary Club Valle de Santiago in Venezuela to support a project they do to feed hungry children in the community.  CLICK HERE for a short video on this project.

At today's meeting we watched a video about Polio and realized there are many similarities between the Polio Outbreak in the 1950's and what we are facing with COVID-19.  CLICK HERE to watch the video (10 minutes).
 
Dina Pocernich has ended her membership with Rotary because she moved to Baraboo last month.  Attending our morning meetings is no longer an option for her.  We will miss her dearly!
 
Exciting News!  We have 2 new members! 
 
Jen Tooley
Branch Executive of Sun Prairie YMCA
 
Lynne Goldsmith
Retired Personal Financial Advisor
 
Please help me welcome these two new members!  Lynne has attended our last two Zoom meetings.  We will be doing a Rotary induction with them soon.
 
Take care, stay healthy, and I will see you next week via Zoom!
