In-person Rotary meetings may resume as guided by the Center for Disease Control and local Minnesota guidelines.
*   Please complete the Survey Monkey survey which members should have received by e-mail on Wednesday, March 17, from Erik Van Kuijk.  This brief survey seeks anonymous input from members concerning future meetings, including in-person versus on-line and meeting format. 
*   Please consider attending a Grant Management Seminar being held virtually.  These seminars cover both District and Global Grants, and at least one member from each club is required to attend in order to receive grants during the next Rotary year (July to June).  If you have attended before, you may attend a refresher seminar; first-time attenders must attend a full session.  You may see dates/times for sessions and register at the District 5950 Rotary website; click on the Events Calendar
*   Tim Murphy, past District 5950 Governor and past president of Edina Morningside Rotary Club, recently suffered a heart attack.  Please check the Morningside Rotary home page for information to send Tim well wishes.
*   There will be a Foundation Board meeting on March 24, 2021.
*    There will be no regular MURC meeting on March 31, 2021.
Contributions from Brag-a-Bucks support the Club Foundation.  
*    Erik and Virginia drove to Zumbro Falls and had lunch with a friend.  They very much enjoyed their scenic and beautiful drive along the Mississippi River.   
*     Bob noted March 17 is his wonderful grandson, Emmet's, birthday, who is two years old today!  Bob also noted his first outdoor dining experience in many months was last weekend!  
*     Erin has finished graduate school, and her thesis has been approved!!  Congratulation, Erin, from all of us.  Well done!
*      Carole wishes everyone a happy Saint Patrick's Day!

Disinformation in a Post-truth Era 

Everyone understands the problem of disinformation in today's media landscape and the damage it can do to our civil discourse. What's often less clear is how to keep it at bay. Old strategies tied to the "deep attention" of critical thinking may not work when the goal of disinformation is to capture attention. 

Consumers of news and information must ask themselves two questions:   1) What is the source of the information, and 2) What is the evidence supporting the information.  This requires a person to engage in additional reading to assess whether a news story or information is true or correct.
