Meeting Format Changes
 
1. Staffed Buffet Instead of Banquet
Our club's board made the decision to revert to a staffed buffet, as the banquet-style luncheons have been causing logistical issues and distractions during meetings. The Hilton staff will wear masks and gloves, and we ask that all club members follow the CDC's indoor masking guidelines as well.
 
Please arrive 10-15 minutes early to allow yourself time to move through the buffet and be seated before President Matt calls the meeting to order at 12:00.
 
2. Registration Optional
Registration is encouraged, but no longer required to attend meetings in person. Pre-registering sends a calendar invitation to your email inbox and helps ensure that the appropriate amount of food is available.
 
3. Continue to Follow CDC Masking Guidelines
The CDC recommends that all individuals 2 years of age and older wear masks in public indoor settings in areas of "Substantial" or "High" transmission rates. 
 
"In Dauphin County, Pennsylvania, community transmission is High Transmission.

Everyone should wear a mask in public indoor settings."

4. Virtual Meeting Available

Our Tech Team has been hard at work providing a high-quality virtual meeting experience for our club members and guests. If you are not vaccinated, not feeling well, or have a possible exposure to COVID-19, the club's board of directors kindly asks that you enjoy our virtual meeting experience instead of attending in person.

Rotary Foundation Dinner Nov 18
hosted by District 7390 at
The Lodge at Liberty Forge
 
On November 18th the annual “Foundation Dinner” will take place at the Lodge at Liberty Forge in Mechanicsburg PA.  The focus this year will be to celebrate the great work of Rotary clubs and individual Rotarians during a year of intense need in our communities.  A video is being developed featuring the great work of clubs that participated in district grant projects and global grants during the 2020-2021 Rotary Year.  There is still time to submit a photo to DGE Juliet of your project in time for inclusion in the video!!  Additionally, we would like to feature organizations that have been on the receiving end of your club’s generosity!  We will give them a table in the cocktail area to showcase their organization.  Other highlights of the evening will include:
 
  • 4:30 – 5:00 PM  Reception for Major Donors, Paul Harris Society Members, Benefactors, Bequest Society Members and Arch Klumph Society Members. There will be a cash bar and hors d'oeuvres. This is by invitation only! 
  • 5:00 – 6:00 PM Cocktail hour featuring club projects past and present. Would your club like to showcase a project you are proud that could prompt other clubs to join you or duplicate what you have done? Click here to email DGE Juliet to secure a table
  • 6:00 – 8:30 PM  Dinner, club awards, club presentations, greetings from our global grant scholars in London, and more…
Thanks to our Membership Committee for organizing a successful "Pints for Polio" fundraising social! We're happy to report that we raised $300.00 for the Rotary Foundation's Polio Plus Fund!
