Renee Cortright gave the invocation to our club today.

There were 46 Rotarians present, and no guests. Lets change that, bring a friend!!

Jay Eastman presented Phil Lowman with his 7th Paul Harris for his continued participation in every project that comes his way and his undeniable spirit. 
Highlights of the Board Meeting:
       We had a membership report and talks of follow ups for those we haven't seen in a while. Tom gave the financial report. The board reviewed the Bylaw feedback and the committee will be meeting with that feedback in mind on August 3rd for those who would like to participate. 
We are looking for more hands on projects!! Anyone that has ideas for how we can serve our community better, please bring them to either David Eardley or Rachel Aviles. 
We are in search of filling our marketing position. Please keep your eyes open and let us know of any suggestions. 
       Melinda was admitted as a new member to our club.
We couldn't be more happy to have her!!
We had 1 member birthday this week, Jason Brainer. Happy Birthday Rotarian!!
We had 3 club anniversaries Phil McPeek 3 years, Pete Duhamel 56 years and Kathy Losinski 3 years. 

Our guest was Paula Del Papa, Interim General Manager with Par Pharmaceutical. She has been with the company for 25 years and gave us an interesting dive into the role they've played in the community and Rotary. The company had a huge impact on our fight against polio and continues to provide the lab work required for vaccines that keep our community healthy. They were key in making critical patient care products that were in especially high demand during the pandemic. 

We are still on the look for a forever meeting home.


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.
