President Walter started the meeting with his end of the year report recapping club activities and events during this time.  He emphasized the importance of forming action groups going forward. 
Membership Chair Dietrich proposed strategies for  increasing membership with a goal of being diverse and active in the community.
Dietrich further suggested opening the club to parents of interacters, non-members and to those who have relevance to the club. This will be at no cost to the club as meals will be paid for by the guests. He also suggested promoting the Rotary with its mission and focus through advertising, etc.
His final proposal is to reactivate and seek a closer relationship with the Chamber of Commerce by having two or three of our members attend their meetings and they could reciprocate in kind.  Lucille mentioned that the Chamber will be offering the first year of membership free.
Bernie announced that he will no longer be on the board after July 1st.
Janet will be reporting on the district zoom meeting she attended at the upcoming Rotary Meeting on June 17th.
Lucille's installation/coronation will be held on June 24th.  It will most likely be held outside in order to comply with the social distance guidelines.  Time and place to be announced!
Heritage Days has been called off for this year............ no pancake breakfast.
No meeting this Wednesday, June 10th.
Respectfully submitted,
