President Carol opened our virtual meeting and called on Larry Rankin to handle the invocation, pledge and Four-Way Test.
 
Carol introduced our guests and visiting Rotarians.
 
Happy Dollars was an “open mic” and everyone took turns.
 
For announcements, Carol reminded us that we could donate our lunch money to the Rotary Annual Fund. Sign in to your rotary account here and take care of it. Or you can mail a check to our P.O. Box 2171, Lakeland 33806. She asked that we do it before 6/30 so we can get to our donation goal for the Rotary year.
 
She also reminded us about the next Rotary Town Hall Meeting, which was with Dr. Eric Freundt, Director of the Office of Undergraduate Research and Inquiry at the University  of Tampa. It was last week, on May 12 at 6 p.m.
 
And because we are unlikely to be able to gather in a large group anytime soon, our annual dinner has been canceled.
 
Before we jumped into the program, President Carol showed a video featuring DG Kip Kipnis about an important initiative to help those in need. He also joined our meeting to talk about it too. We are all encouraged to help out with the District-wide 1 Million Meals in May for Tampa Bay challenge. All 38 Clubs are invited to help, and the work we do will benefit the counties in our District. See this info to learn more.
 
Our Program was “SCORE Helping Small Businesses” by Mark Scolnick and Becky Bywater. If you missed it, there’s a recording you can access from our web site. And you can learn more about all the great work SCORE does here
 
Next program: New Member Profiles.
