Show Low Raffle
The club was excited to see the return of the Show Low Raffle!  Beginning with a pot of $250, the first ticket drawn was owned by Bil Trodlier.  He did not draw the winning 2 of clubs so he did not win the pot today. However he did win his choice of wines offered and chose the red.  We were glad to see Joe Montagna today on zoom and his ticket was drawn next!  Joe, we will hold your wine at the club meeting room until you are able to pick it up.

President John announced that we will resume Coffee Friday after a long hiatus!  He and his lovely wife Chihiro recently enjoyed their visit to Bakery Lorraine at the Medical Center.

Their address is 7338 Louis Pasteur Dr Ste 201.

President John announced the club board will meet tomorrow with zoom, April 8 at 11.  Several members have presentations from their committees so please try to make it! 
 
Zoomies
Someone in our group coined the phrase “zoomies” – club members who have become quite proficient with attending and conducting meetings on this virtual meeting platform during the coronavirus pandemic. 
 
Zoom Meetings
Secretary Mary congratulated all club members for meeting virtually and remaining very active and involved with our club during this long period of social distancing!
Members because very close also due to forming a text group and sharing often.  Thank you for your interest and involvement with Oak Hills Rotary Club, "The Friendliest Club in District 5840!"
