Last Week's Zoom Business Meeting
Thanks to all who were able to join in last week's business meeting!
 
Virtual Meeting 5/14 at 12:15 - New Instructions
 As a result of the concerns about strangers joining in to Zoom meetings (aka "zoombombing") we are adding 2 security features to our meeting:
 
1) A Password will be added to the invitation. Once you click the Zoom link, you will be asked to enter a 6 digit password. You will find that password in the email I send this Thursday morning.
 
2) Once you enter the meeting, you will go directly into a "Waiting Room". I will get an alert that you are there and I will then click a button to join you into the meeting. 
 
Please make sure to type your NAME in when you join to identify yourself. 
 
Shannon will send out the Zoom link and Password on Thursday morning
 
If anyone is new to Zoom and would like to do a quick training with me, please call Shannon at 630-220-6106 or respond to this email.
Please do not hesitate to reach out to get training - it will only take a few minutes and you will be set to go to Zoom with us!
 
Every Rotarian Every Year 
The Every Rotarian, Every Year (EREY) initiative encourages all Rotary club members to contribute $100 to help support the Rotary Foundation financially each year.  All contributions to the international fund are spent on quality international Rotary projects. 
 
It was mentioned at the Business Meeting last week that this is the time that Foundation Chair Tom usually reminds members that if they have not yet made their $100 Every Rotarian Every Year donation, and would like to do so, this would be time to make it.  You can contact Treasurer Brian at bgrotarytreasurer@gmail.com and he will assist you in making the donation by credit card if you wish.  
Save These Dates for Club Events
Please put these dates your calendars:
Melanie's Fireside Chat - Thursday, May 28th @ 7pm via ZOOM
Virtual Installation Ceremony  - Thursday, June 25th @ 7pm via ZOOM

New Date for Golf Outing - Sept. 30th
Due to the extended Stay-at-Home order, SLSF and The Rotary Club of Buffalo Grove have made the difficult decision to reschedule the 2020 Buffalo Grove Golf Classic from May 20, 2020 to Wednesday, September 30, 2020.
Village of Buffalo Grove Info on COVID-19
Dane and his staff have created a useful website page for anyone seeking local information on COVID-19.  Click here to reach that page.  
New Facebook Page for Our Club
Melanie has created a Facebook page so we can stay connected that way if you choose to.  Go to  BG Rotary COVID-19 Touch Base FB Group! and join us.  As Melanie said:
Feel free to utilize this page if you'd like to check in and let us know how you are faring through this unprecedented time! Let us know what you're doing to stay busy (and sane), and if there is anything you believe we could all benefit from.
Amazon Smile Link for our Rotary Foundation
Our treasurer, Brian, went through the process of setting up Amazon Smile for the Rotary Foundation.   Here is the link if you want to check it out:  https://smile.amazon.com/ch/36-3653525
 
It's a great way to support our Foundation any time you are ordering from Amazon!
