Ambler Rotary Wheel 2019 - 2020 Volume 95, Edition 19

WITH THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC OUR WEEKLY LUNCH HAS BEEN CANCELLED FOR THE NEXT TWO WEEKS.

IN LIEU OF THIS, PLEASE CONSIDER MAKING A DONATION TO OUR LOCAL FOOD BANKS WHO WILL BE OVERRUN WITH NEEDS FROM THE COMMUNITY WHO ARE ALREADY SUFFERING.

Here is also a little reminder......

With COVD-19 happening, our meeting was a little light on attendance this past week.

March 11, 2020

We pledged, cited, sang and prayed. Once again Donna was absent from our lunch and is still dealing with her back issue and now some housing repairs. She would love to have you call her to touch base - she can be reached at 267-613-8957. She is unable to drive still and I have offered to go grocery shopping for her later today.

ROTARY FOUR WAY TEST

  1. Is it the TRUTH?
  2. Is it FAIR to all concerned?
  3. Will it build GOODWILL and better friendships?
  4. Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?

GUESTS / VISITING ROTARIANS

No visiting Rotarians or guests this week.

NEW MEMBER APPLICATION

We received an application for membership from Rosemarie Lagreca who is sponsored by Liz! Rosenarie currently works at the Largo Group in Ambler (accounting firm). She is also involved in various groups within her church and is looking forward to getting involved in our community efforts. If anyone has any questions about Rosemarie's application please let us know. We will be voting on her application next week and will induct her into the club when we return to our weekly meetings.

HAPPY DOLLARS

Peter was happy to announce that his kiddo turned 2 and that it was National Undertakers Day.

Kerry was perplexed that I still had a gavel half way through my 2nd year. I guess Kerry, that I am a little more responsible and untrusting than you?

Clint was happy coming back from a few days spent in Lake Tahoe skiing with his family from Texas (hence the scruff). He was also happy to announce that his daughter Taylor was able to secure a 5 year visa to stay in London. Now she just needs a job........

Jan wanted everyone to know that Prez Tex needed to shave.

Eric was reminiscent of a friend who just passed away and how when they got together, Eric would always bring a cheese steak.

Liz was just happy to be at the week's meeting and something else but I was not paying attention....
