Hello all!  As of June, 2022, I'll be helping to put the newsletter information out to you all.  
 
Anne is kindly helping me on this months newsletter and I'll be the one reaching out to you for the rest of the year.  I'll try to reach out to you all mid month so we can get organized and get this out to all members prior to our first meeting.  Email works best for me, but feel free to call me.  You may need to leave a message (you know, SO much SPAM these days :( )
 
Looking forward to working with you all.

On May 3, 2022 John Novotny is going to tell us about the Stove Project in Africa and will be introduced by Jamie Snyder.
Noon Rotary is going to be passing the hat at our meetings in April, collecting money to assist with medical supplies.  Please bring your checkbook and help us support medical professionals in Ukraine. 
  • UPCOMING SPECIAL EVENT**  On Tuesday evening March 29 @ 5:30pm we will have a joint “social” of Columbus Morning Rotary along with the Columbus Noon Rotary club at Big 10 Sports Bar in their party room, 510 E 23rd St, Columbus.  No meeting, no agenda, just a great way to get to socialize and get to know fellow Rotarians better in a casual setting.  Spouses and guests are welcome.
 
Our service project for March is "The green bean casserole project."  Please bring some or all of the ingredients for a green bean casserole, two cans of canned green beans, cream of mushroom soup, and French fried onions to the club between now and April 5th.  These items will then be donated to a food pantry to help needy people prepare their Easter dinner.
Who will win the $25 Visa Gift Certificate?  President John Landers will provide the Gift Certificate.  Anyone that brings a guest for the next four Tuesdays will be in the drawing.  Bring two guests and get your name in the drawing twice. 
Unless otherwise announced, the June Board meeting will be the 2nd Tuesday, June 14th, after the membership meeting.  This can be used for a makeup for a missed meeting the week before or after this meeting. 
 
 

                                      The Program Committee for the next several months follows. 
                                          The first person listed is the Chairperson for the month.

On June 22nd we will eat at the Family Resource Center and then proceed to a tour of the new apartments located in the building.  We need a good count of who is going to eat at the Family Resource Center.  Please sign up at our Tuesday meeting or reply to this newsletter and we will get you on the list.

Carol Keller is asking each member to send a card to a shut in for Thanksgiving for a November service project.  This time of year can be difficult and is more difficult this year due to COVID-19 and we thought this would be a good way to provide a little cheer.
