Thanks to all of you who were able to log into our first Online Rotary Meeting (April 1st).  It definitely was not an April Fools Joke.  While we had a few initial problems, the end result was positive.  We will be holding our April Business meeting on April 8th, also online.   Details on agenda and login information  will be sent in a future email.
 
Last night we were able to share a few updates on programs and projects that are underway and we agreed to investigate a new proposal involving Grocery Delivery to shut-ins/and those isolating due to COVID-19. 
 
One of the key items discussed last night was the importance for members to respond to an earlier email requesting support for our grant proposal to Columbia Basin Trust for funding for an Engineering study for the upgrading of the Marysville Falls Walkway.  Your support of our proposal (plus any you can get from friends and neighbours especially anyone who works with seniors in town) will likely influence how much funding we get.  One key area to emphasize in the comment area is the importance of the upgrade to ensure safety for all, and first time accessibility for those with mobility issues (ie wheelchair friendly).  
 
Our Guest Speaker last night was President Jaret.  
 
Jaret's program was on the plans that are underway for developing the Old Central and Watkins School Property in down town Kimberley.  We expect to hear a lot more about this building proposal in the months ahead.  The following is drawing of a possible layout for the area.  If all goes well, construction for phase one could be underway this Fall.
