Meeting: President Eric chaired our first online meeting:
Eric talked of the four RYLA selectees and the upcoming review of scholarship applications.The decision about the 5K road race has not been made, the committee will discuss the event in a week or so.
Pam talked about the sanitizer project and the needs at Kittery Estates. Larry Knowles said the needs at Meetinghouse were starting to develope, Andy indicated they had planned on getting a case to Meetinghouse.
Larry said they a growing need was for shoppers. He is trying to keep his residents in place and at the moment he had only a few volunteer shoppers from First Christian Church. He asked if people can volunteer to shop to please contact him email@example.com. Brad, and Linda both indicated that their churches might help and Pam volunteered as well.
Pam spoke to the need for both volunteers and donors to support the Blood Drives at the Lions Club every Thursday this Month, please let her know if and when you can support as a volunteer and contact the Red Cross and volunteer to donate if you can, there is a desperate need for blood.
Brad said the Block Party has not decided to postpone at this time, with 2 1/2 months to go and conditions changing rapidly it is hard to call yet.
Andy mentioned that he believes the email addresses on the meeting announcement are all current. Marie asked that members please update their contact information on the Club website when they occur (Dave G followed up and found that the list used to mail from the secretary had not had all the latest addresses)
As was readily apparent, the secretary was present at the meeting but no visual of him or sound. The reason found was that, never having had use for it until now he (I) had not noted that my monitor had not ever been set up for it, so I could see and hear you all but not participate.(This may be an improvement to meetings :-) )
