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 Tim Duncan, asking for strength for our law enforcement and nation's leaders to create meaningful change.  Virtual lunch was served.

There were 44 Rotarians present, and one guest:  Jason Brainer (inducted today).

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

Wayne Hodges then inducted a new member, Jason Brainer.  Welcome to the club Jason, congratulations!
Wayne Hodges then gave a Paul Harris award to Stuart Siegner, for outstanding work leading our Membership Committee.  Great job Stuart!
We had two birthdays this week, George Krozier, June 11th, and Marty Pavlick, June 12th.  Happy birthday Rotarians!
We also had one club anniversary today:  Janet Drobnich, 28 years ago today.

Chief Steve Schettenhelm and Mayor Bryan Barnett spoke to the group regarding the Rochester area's response to recent protests and civil unrest following the death of George Floyd.  Chief spoke about the hiring process in Rochester, how screening starts at the beginning (this is stressed, as halting problems before they happen is key).  And then, the training itself guides the officer through the standards and processes in place.  Mayor Barnett then discussed how our local cities are focused on public safety.  Rochester Hills is the safest city in Michigan for the fourth year in a row (cities greater than 50,000 people).  Nationally, the conference of mayors has been busy, discussing daily preparations to work with the protests happening in each of the cities within the conference.  Bryan finished his presentation by talking about a movie, The Hate You Give, and the story embedded within it.  Thank you so much for your presentation Steve and Bryan, great information, and good start.

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.
