Todays Meeting
No birthdays this week, but 6 Members reached an anniversary milestone, from Danielle and Getchen (1 year) up to Rollie celebrating 49 years!
Please listen to our accomplished Students of the Month who spoke today in the Zoom link below.
Our End Polio Now fundraiser through FB has raised $2500 to date and donations will be tallied at the end of the week. If you are sending a check (Box 301, Janesville, 53547), make it payable to Janesville Rotary Foundation and let Vicki know the check is on the way. Thanks to Heather for organizing this fundraiser for our Club to help with eradication efforts!
Covid-19 Community Relief project: We are partnering with ECHO, Salvation Army, GIFTS Shelter, Milton Food Pantry and Janesville Community Center to address needs in our community for those directly impacted by COVID-19. This month we focus on ECHO. In addition to a $2000 donation, we are offering our volunteer efforts to help with the Thanksgiving distribution, which will take place on November 21st at the Fairgrounds. ECHO is limiting the number of volunteers to 50 so the packaging and drive through distribution will be socially distant. We may fill 15 of those volunteer spots. Email Rick Mueller if you are interested in helping and he will give you more details. If you've never helped with this, trust me, it is a joyous thing to help with. I expect the 15 spots will go quickly, so commit soon. They are accepting financial donations and as always, they need a LOT of brown paper bags. If you have some to donate, you can leave on a cart outside the door- along with food or other donations! Cash/check donations can be left in the secure drop box by the front door. 
There are other opportunities coming up to assist ECHO through the holidays- the Christmas toy distribution is being modified and will consist of Cash cards to Blains Farm & Fleet and a goody bag with treats and stocking stuffers in a drive through event on 12.11. Last year ECHO provided 517 children with Christmas toys.  ECHO also distributed Christmas trees and decorations to 98 families who otherwise would not have been able to afford these holiday extras The Christmas dinner will be carry out and delivery only, For more details on any of these opportunities to help, visit www.echojanesville.org. Or call Fran about volunteer needs at 754-5333.
Jessica detailed how ECHO has responded and adjusted to staying open during the pandemic in our meeting- please listen to learn more, and be sure to congratulate her in her new Executive Director role at ECHO!
As always, thanks to Nate for zooming our meetings!
