New Normal

We keep hearing the phrase “new normal”; I have even said it on one of our virtual meetings, I think.  I cannot help but wonder though if we will ever go back to the old normal.


As glad as I am that we have the benefit of technology so we can continue to “meet” on a weekly basis, I will be glad to return to our old routine at Lefty’s on Wednesday evenings.  Having fun, enjoying each other’s fellowship, and making the world a better place.  (I would have mentioned coffee and Miller Light, but those have been featured virtually as well.)  Perhaps as important, we need to be able get back to our club business.  Our activities and fundraisers have been put off.  This morning, I received the e-mail that our District’s RYLA for 2020 has been cancelled.  Every club is unfortunately having to endure these same tests.


During this time, my only goal is to make sure that the momentum that we have been enjoying is sustained.  We ended February on a great path.  March was basically stagnant.  Now, even though we are still holed up for April, let’s see what we can accomplish from our couches!


We can look at life through many different lenses, and right now, there is a smudge on our lens.  So here’s to cleaning the lens off so we can focus on our goals.  Let’s see if we can all get back to the old normal.

We Want to Hear About You!
We are looking for club members to do a classification talk.
What is that you ask?
A classification talk is your chance to tell members about yourself and your business.  It shouldn't be a big chore because you should already know all the answers :) How you share information about your profession is up to you!  Relax and enjoy your opportunity to educate your fellow Rotarians about who you are and your vocation.
If you are interested in speaking, contact Abby ( to schedule a time in our calendar.
