Summary of March 5th Meeting
Thanks to your generosity, we collected $46 in 'Happy Bucks' and 'Dollars for the Foundation.' All these contributions benefit the Rotary International Foundation. 
Our guest speaker at last week's breakfast meeting was Leslie Fleuranges. Leslie is Comfort-in-Chief at Tender Loving Care Pet Nursing Hotel, a highly personal, premium daycare and boarding facility for pets with special needs.

I hope all of you are healthy and doing well with the shelter in place order.  Since the COVID - 19 crisis does not seem to be ending in the near future, the Board and I felt it was time to resume our weekly Rotary meetings via Zoom.  You should have received an email about the meeting this Thursday (and subsequent meetings) with the link and log in information.  The link will not be live until right before the meeting begins at 8 am.  You can choose to have your video on or off, and there is even a call-in number if you just want to call in by telephone.  Do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions prior to the meeting.  This week, we will be catching up with one another so there will not be a speaker.  We hope to have speakers in other meetings.  

We also are resuming weekly newsletters to stay connected.  Feel free to submit an item for the newsletter to Becky Johnston.  Finally, we have notified the Holiday Inn that we are not meeting there for the rest of April.  We will make a decision when we will meet in person based on guidance by state and local authorities.  I am looking forward to "seeing" all of you this Thursday at 8 am!

When Paul Harris organized his first group of men to meet weekly, he did not just approach businessmen. He wanted a cross-section of business and professional people who would represent various population groups in Chicago.  After many years, Rotarians who joined would declare that they represented a specific vocation or classification of jobs.  

When we joined Rotary, most of us were assigned a classification (or a job title).  That brings people representing as many businesses or professions to our team. Past members have included a mayor, a city manager, a county administrator, doctors, police and dozens of other businesses and professions.

Rotary is looking for community leaders, businessmen/women, and professionals who want to serve their community and help those in need. As the Johnson County Rotary, we could have representatives of any county departments and service.  We should also have representatives of jobs found in our neighborhoods and business parks.  

When looking for prospects, think of business people you use?  With whom do you like to work?   Who has an optimistic spirit?   Who lives a life of service?  We need people you like and trust.   That’s how we grow the club.

As we work on membership, let’s see if we can build this team.  Johnson County is a vital, growing and creative.    And so are we!
