This week in Rotary

Club News and Updates:

We started the new Rotary year with a "Twilight" Meeting both at Nexus Brewery and on Zoom on July 5th, and our Morning Meeting both at Jimmy's Cafe and on Zoom on July 7th.  For both meetings, we had Club Assemblies focused on considering some changes to our meetings, in large part because they are Hybrid meetings, and on participation with our new Club Committees. 
Maybe the most exciting change that we agreed to is to bring the Rotary Wranglers back live and in person!  We can't wait to enjoy song and fellowship that has been a staple of our Club for years.  A huge thanks to our Wrangler Leader, Bruce Bortner, who effectively led us over the last several years remotely via Zoom.  Bruce, the members of Rotary Del Sol are extremely grateful for helping the Club get through a very difficult and challenging period in our history.
Another important change regards Lucky Bux, Venmo, and our Zoom participants.  We agreed to continue our lucky bux like we've been doing it, and we want to make sure that the members on Zoom can participate as easily as those at Jimmy's.  So, what we're asking is for all the members to sign up to use Venmo for contributions to the Club (and, by the way, to the Club Foundation).  Venmo is something we should use anyway since it's much easier than cash transactions, and Venmo can be used to pay our dues as well.  If those of you who are on Zoom can Venmo their lucky bux contributions ahead of time and let Treasurer Herman know (e-mail may be the easiest way to let Herman know), he'll make sure to set aside tickets so you can participate.  We'll also have someone at Jimmy's pull the card for you after you announce the card rank.  It may take a couple of weeks to work out the kinks, but we're confident that it will work better especially for the Zoom participants.
President Jeff handed out pins to the new Board Members and Avenues of Service Points of Contact (more will be handed out this week for those who did not attend) and thanked them for agreeing to serve:

Committee Participation and Speaker Forms:

If you have not already done so, please complete the two short surveys below.  The first one, which we’ll provide in each weekly bulletin going forward, is a speaker proposal form that will be used by our Programs Committee to coordinate future speakers (and with Zoom, the speakers can be from anywhere literally around the world).  The second one is to find out which Committee(s) you will be or are interested in serving on.  We would like to have as many Club members serving on our Committees as possible especially if it’s aligned with your interests. The Board will be meeting this Thursday and will be working to fill out the Committee rosters.
Rotary Please feel free to call, text, or e-mail President Jeff (1-505-400-1403, if you have any questions about these surveys or about any aspect of our Club.
Let's all have a great week in Rotary putting Service above Self.
