Milestone in Club History
Due to the restrictions of social distancing due to the COVID-19 coronavirus epidemic, our club achieved a milestone in our history: we conducted our first virtual meeting with the ZOOM app!  We had 13 in attendance. There were no visitors and no speaker. There was also no umbrella time and no show low drawing. We will meet remotely until further notice.  
 
Charter Member,  Past President, the  oldest member at 94 years of ago, our very own... Don Deal was also present during our Zoom Rotary Meeting.  Thank you Ken Ruiz for bringing Don to the meeting via your phone.  Ken also shared a photo of Don - it was truly a memorable time!

President Rick Tarbell opened the meeting and led us with a word of prayer and the pledges. 
 
Announcements
