The Gateway - Rotary Club of Gravenhurst

Dear Citizens of Gravenhurst

The COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve on a daily basis. It is recommended that organizations plan to respond in a flexible way to varying levels of severity and be prepared to change their operations as needed. We will continue to monitor the recommendations from Public Health and will react accordingly.

Unfortunately we have had to cancel our weekly bingo. We will resume as soon as possible.

During this difficult time we are assisting vulnerable members of our community as much as we can. With the loss of bingo revenue this proves to be a challenge, however we are supporting G.A.P. and providing weekly grocery vouchers for those in dire need. We encourage those who can help to donate to our club or directly to G.A.P. Please see Rotary's latest press release on how to donate. 

Until further notice we have canceled our regular Monday noon meetings as well as other Rotary events in our District. Our board meetings and committee meetings are mostly being done by teleconference.

  

All Rotarians are mindful of those in our community that may be impacted by the mental stress and the anxiety of this event as well as the self-isolation so many are experiencing. For any member of our community having difficulty please do not hesitate to reach out to someone from our club or to any of the agencies in our community. We are here to support you.  

 

The health and safety of our Rotary members, their families and our community are our top priority and primary concern. Public Health officials are encouraging the use of social distancing and self-isolation to flatten the curve and protect vulnerable people in our community. We each need to do our part to endeavour to abide by public health recommendations. 

 

Wishing all of you good health over the coming days and weeks,

 

MaryAnne Marshall
President
Rotary Club of Gravenhurst
