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 David Eardley, remembering those who served, and asking for strength to continue to do what Rotarians are best at.  Virtual lunch was served.

There were 42 Rotarians present, and two guests:  Kelly Dean and Atilla the Hun.

President Wayne announced to the club that every member that served in the Armed Forces, every one earned the 15th logon (handshake) this week, enjoy the week without fines!

John Somerville then spoke about the Master's Raffle, occurring at the end of October.  We still have 25 tickets left, please help us sell this event out.
Bill Ebinger gave us an update on our gazebo project, phase one is completed.  Next phase is brick pavers and seating.  We are planning on leasing this structure for weddings etc.  Fantastic project, great job Bill!
President Wayne let us know about a conversation he had with Nino at Rivercrest, most likely we will not be meeting anytime before July in person.
John Somerville then spoke about helping to improve your video appearance (Phil), and utilizing the space bar to mute / unmute your audio.
Ron Lichtle spoke about project Phoenix, if you haven't had an opportunity to respond to his e-mail, please take a minute to do so.  Your feedback will help us recover, and thrive in our current situation.
We had one birthday this week, Jerry Carvey on May 29th, happy birthday!
We also had one club anniversary today:  Linda Eastman, 12 years on 5/27.

Renee Cortright spoke to the club how the OPC is adapting to the pandemic.  The doors have been closed for over two months, but they are still delivering services to our senior community (virtually, and remotely).  Since March 6th, they have prepared and delivered 21,500 nutritionally balanced meals.  They have also assisted in over 4,000 critical rides (dialysis, necessary medical appointments, and grocery shopping).  Thanks very much for speaking to us today Renee, great to hear the OPC is still fully operational.

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.
