ZOOM FAQ for Rotary Meetings
 
If you want to “Raise Your Hand” – click on “Participants” at the bottom of the screen and select the raised hand symbol, it may take some time but the host will get back to you.  You can always send the host a personal CHAT if you get no response.
 
Clicking on “Participants” also lets you select yes/no for a quiz or a poll.
 
If you need to switch your video off – click on the video button on the bottom left of the screen, if you move your mouse to the top right of your individual picture you will see a “hide self view” option – DO NOT USE THIS OPTION.  You can’t see yourself – but every else can still see you.
 
If you want to share a video to everyone in the zoom meeting, you will need to “share your screen”, but before you share you should start the video on your system and pause it – then share your screen > select the share audio in the bottom left and then click on the paused video and then resume playing.
 
A separate committee meeting may be scheduled following the regular meeting – a zoom breakout room will be set up and meeting participants will be moved to that room, the regular meeting will continue.
 
General Tips:
  • Try and place the camera at eye level
  • Make sure you have decent lighting (fluorescents will make you look very pale).
  • If you are using a virtual background, best to have a clear background behind you.
  • Stay muted until you need to speak.
 
This was the first Induction Celebration for our Club presented virtually.  There were some hurdles prior to the meeting, but we overcame them and the meeting started just after the scheduled time.
 
Guests arrived just before 6:45 pm and were entertained by our SAA Rod Collard until 7:00 pm.  We look forward to hearing the answers to the questions this Thursday morning. 
 
All stood as Piper, Gordon Scott, piped Owen, Nima and family in to start the celebration in true Scottish Canadian form. 
 
Family and Guests were welcomed and the traditional proceedings were started by David Dean at the piano playing the National Anthem.  Assistant Governor Janet Canavan led us with the Toast to Canada and Rotary.  Bernie Scrivener gave us the history of the Herb Stoneham Presidential induction event.
 
David Roscoe gave his final speech as President with reflections of his Rotary year.  He thanked the Board of Directors and SAA and announced two Rotarians of the Year.   Joe Watson and Keith Williams.
 
Lesley Barmania, District Governor, gave us an inspirational speech prior to the start of the formal presentation of the Pin exchange.
 
Lawrence Leung retired his Past Presidents Pin and said a few parting words thanking the Club members for assisting him during his year as president.
 
David Roscoe removed his Presidents Pin and replaced this with his Past Presidents Pin thanking the board members for all their assistance during the past year.
 
Owen McElhinney removed his President Elect Pin and Nima McElhinney pinned his kilt jacket with his new Presidents Pin.
 
Rene Papin received his President Elect Pin and said a few words looking forward to the next year prior to his presidency.
 
 
Kathy Thomas (Past President and Honorary Member) and Andrew Gaydon were asked to say a few words to help us better understand our new President – Owen McElhinney.  This ended with all singing Happy Birthday to Owen who just turned 60 the Monday previous.
 
The Rotary Club of Burlington Central, 35th President, Owen McElhinney, gave an inspiring speech and direction for the upcoming year, reflections and a sincere thank you to fellow Rotarians, past and present.  Owen greeted his Board of Directors for 2020/2021 and announced his Sergeant at Arms for the upcoming Rotary year – Mr. Joe Chalklin.
           
The meeting ended with Owen reciting the 4 Way Test, with some help from David, Lawrence and Rene.   Twice!
