CLUB MEETINGS ON HOLD

Over the past few days, legal requirements limiting group sizes ("mass gatherings") have gotten smaller and health professionals recommendations regarding social distancing measures have tightened.  This is making it harder and harder to justify continuing our regular Rotary del Sol meetings under the present circumstances.  The President has recommended no meetings larger than 10 people, some cities are literally moving ahead with "shelter in place" orders, etc.  
 
Therefore, with regret, I have decided to place our regular RDS meetings on "hold."  
 
We shall continue to watch and evaluate, and be flexible, however.  I obviously want to return to regular meetings ASAP.  Hopefully, the collective actions of the country over the next few weeks will pay off and we can flatten the curve of transmission.
 
Now, this does not mean that we all MUST stay home.  Depending on your personal preferences, please consider patronizing Jimmy's and other local establishments.  They need our help and support right now.   In addition to small groups of Rotarians gathering for breakfast at Jimmy's on Thursdays (or any other time), here are some other things you can do:
  • Purchase a gift card from Jimmy's and your other favorite local shops and restaurants.
  • Buy Local online and offline – purchase merchandise, look for local ecommerce websites, shop for cookies, salsa, chile, beans, beer, wine and other goods at local businesses.
  • Order take-out and delivery from local restaurants and consider tipping more than usual.
Thanks. We'll continue communications via email and other digital means.

Rotary Member Helps Fight Polio in India

During late January-early February, Rotary Del Sol Club member Dave Ring served as part of a Rotary delegation from the U. S. and Canada aiding Indian Rotarians in their annual Polio Eradication Week.  While India has been officially polio free since 2012, keeping the world's second most populous country that way requires major ongoing effort.  During his time there, Dave met with hundreds of Indian Rotarians, helped inoculate many precious infants, and enjoyed the side-benefit of visiting the Taj Mahal, one of this world's seven man-made wonders.  He'll be taking our club on a whirlwind remembrance of that trip this Thursday morning.

It's NOT the Ride to End pollo...that would be chicken! It's polio! My actual riding experience regarding the Ride to End poLLo, instead of polio would be more humorous if did not illustrate the problem we have keeping it on the world radar screen.

Watermelon Ranch Community Service Project

 
Del Sol Rotarians get the job done.
 
Over two weekends,  Rotary del Sol worked to create a new walkway for volunteers to walk pets at Watermelon Ranch, a local no-kill shelter.   The project also helped us to raise money for Governor's Charity Ball auction items through a grant from DIsney.
