Thursday's Meeting is Both In Person and a Zoom Meeting
Please see President Melanie's email yesterday regarding our meeting on Thursday that is both in person at Pete's and a zoom meeting.  If you are attending in person, please get your lunch order in by tomorrow (Wednesday) noon.  Our club meeting is part of the District Conference and will be broadcast for all Rotarians in District 6440.  Doors open at noon at The Continental, lunch will be served, and the meeting will start promptly (for those in person and on Zoom) at 12:15pm. We will get through our club business for the first 15 minutes (Welcome, Pledge, 4-Way Test, Thought for the Day, Ricky D. Corny Joke, Foundation Minute) no Member Moment or Fun and Frolics for this meeting so Lyle has time to get through his plans.  The speaker for the meeting is Tom Carroll who is well known by the RYLA youth and his topic is Generations at Work.
District Conference Topics for the Week
You would have received information about the topics that you can choose from during the District Conference week from both President Melanie and DG Lyle.  There are some very interesting ones, including a great one for our new members - "I'm New - So Really, What is Rotary?" that is on June 2 at 7 pm.  The link is the same for all of the meetings:
