HOW TO JOIN MEETINGS ON ZOOM:
We would love to see everyone in person at Rotary Club of Redlands, but if that is not possible, the following Zoom option is available by going to:
DIANNA LAWSON and THERESA VAZQUEZ updated us on the goings-on with the Youth Services Committees, including Breakfast and a Book, our annual dictionary distribution, weekly student reps, Student of the Month, Interact, Rotaract, scholarship program, and much more.
Our own CAL BOOTHBY is going to share with the club how our finances work with the Club and our Foundation. The program will discuss the budget, income, and expense of both. CAL developed the program in 2017 and he will describe what is behind all of the money we collect for dues and meeting fees, and will discuss our Foundation and the need to have a major fund raiser to support our giving back to our scholarship program, our community, and our world.
Touch-A-Truck 2023 is on June 10th at the University of Redlands. There will be a 20-30 minute strategy session directly after the RCOR meeting on January 26th at the Masonic Lodge. Anyone interested in taking a small or large committee assignment, or who is just curious about the event and what it means, or who is looking for a way to help is invited to attend.
It was great to have SHIRLEY HARRY back with us after being away for a while. As few good deeds go unpunished she was fined, but ERIC GRENIER kindly picked it up. CHRIS WALKER made the mistake of asking President JEN to sit on an interview panel and paid a price as well.
