This week in Rotary
On October 1, 2020 at the Morning Meeting for Del Sol Rotarians, Del Sol Member Kent Cravens,  who is the Executive Director of the Greater Albuquerque Association of Realtors was the guest speaker. Kent updated us on the current state of the Albuquerque Area Real Estate market. Kent described the Policy and Advocacy functions of GAAR and explained that with Cocid-19,  GAAR has converted all its training for Realtors to Virtual Learning.  He told us that there are  4000 Realtor members of GAAR, which is the largest trade association in New Mexico. He said they have a staff of 20 at GAAR.
Kent also described the various charity events of GAAR, including Run for the Zoo and their Annual Golf Tournament.  GAAR has already met their first goal of $1Million  for Charitable projects.
Kent said the Albuquerque Real Estate market is "very robust".  There is a very low inventory of homes on the market, which in August was only 1188 properties.  He also said that there is a shortage of buildable lots in in Albuquerque and that the Valencia County market is "very hot".   It was a very interesting and timely presentation.
Also at the October 1, Meeting our newest member Phillip DeBerardinis  was inducted.  Phil s a cousin of member Michael McCaffrey who is his sponsor.  Welcome Phil.
Philip DeBerardinis, inducted as our newest member on October 1, 2020.
Today at 5:30 PM the Satellite Meeting for all Del Sol Rotarians will meet via ZOOM.  Jeff Weinrach has sent all members a link to attend.  This will be a very special meeting because Satellite Co-Chair Michael Wood, faculty sponsor of the East Mountain Interact Club, will introduce several members of the East Mountain Interact Club who will discuss their current projects and their collaboration with an Interact Club in Guatemala.
On Saturday, October 10 from 8:00A.M. to 1:00P.M. our Ramp Project will be in action installing another ramp.  You can sign up to work on this project on the Events Calendar or contact Greg Hallstrom or Chris Van Dyck.

Lets all have a Great week in Rotary putting Service above Self.
