Call to Action
Community Service during Covid 19 Quarantine 
Are you performing “Service Above Self” in your own community?
If you are, please share with the club!
During this unconventional period, when we are unable to freely gather and volunteer in the community together, we are looking for ways to connect and share in activities that our members are participating in on their own.  Many of us are most likely already doing good things in our communities.  If you are delivering meals,  helping someone get a job, assisting at church, participating in a  blood drive, or any other community outreach, please send a photo,  a short summary and include the number of  hours you spent doing the activity.  We would like to share these on our social media sites and through our E-Newsletter.  Please feel free to invite a Rotary buddy to your next activity if you feel comfortable doing so.  We can continue to do good things in the community together while we are still apart.
