President Wayne Hodges opened the virtual meeting with the Pledge of Allegiance, then we recited the modified Four Way Test.  The invocation was given by Peter Stuhlreyer, giving thanks for the day, and asking God's help to help us attain a better normal within our community.  Virtual lunch was served.

There were 47 Rotarians present, and one guest:  Don Hobley from DJ Window Cleaning.

President Wayne announced to the club that Juliane Morian earned the 15th logon (handshake) this week, enjoy the week without fines Juliane!

President Wayne spoke about our Master's Golf Raffle, taking place on October 27th, when we will pull the winning ticket.  We are currently ~30 tickets away from being sold out, please try to get these last tickets sold.  We do have posters to get the word out about this event, please send John Somerville a note if you would like to receive one (via e-mail).
President Wayne discussed our Phoenix project, and how our club may rise from the ashes.  He introduced Ron Lichtle, who spoke about his history with the Troy club, and how COVID-19 will be impacting our club going forward.  He is asking for assistance in how we may recover.  There will be an e-mail coming out asking for ideas, please respond, this will help us tremendously.
John Somerville then spoke about Zoom, and how we can make this program work better for us.  Specifically, he spoke about speaker vs. gallery view, and the chat feature.  Those two options will go a long way to help us improve the overall experience.
President Wayne then inducted a new member into the club, Laurene Kaschalk.  Welcome to the club Laurene, congratulations!
We had two birthdays this week, Dale Hetrick (May 10th) and John Modetz (May 14th), happy birthday Rotarians!
We also had no club anniversaries today.

Kathy Losinski then spoke to us about everything that Neighborhood House is doing to help the community, and how they have shifted to accommodate the current state of affairs.  Specifically, since the beginning of March, NH has given out over 50,000 meals to the community.

Yes, this is a challenging time.  But, we are Rotarians, we will rise to the challenge, and our resilience and power of adaptation will prevail over this.  Thanks everyone, have a great week.
