Scuttlebutt May 9, 2021
This Tuesday we are in for another treat!  Our own Professor Jessica Barnett will give us an update on her life.  At least the parts she is willing to share. 

Remember to get your Paul Harris nominations in to Karyn Lange.

You all have received your membership packets.  Look around you for your family, friends, work colleagues, folks in your religious organizations, members of other groups to which you belong.  Who of those folks would enjoy being a part of our club and would bolster our commitment to serving our local, national, and international community?  You are our best ambassadors for who we are as a group.

From Joan Arsenault, past District Governor-Through contact with Charlie Callanan, UNOPS Director – Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Nepal, Pakistan, and Rotary Zone Director Valerie Wafer there is an URGENT need for Oxygen Concentrators in India.  Rotary has set up an India Covid Relief Project.  Due to the urgency of the situation in India this project will be open till the 24th. May 2021. 

For US donations, Rotary District 6400 Foundation has offered their assistance to be the routing Foundations for the funds for this COVID Project.  Here are the financial details to be shared with your respective clubs, agencies, and well-wishers so they can donate to the India Covid Relief Project. Send checks to:
Rotary District 6400 Foundation, Manager's Office, 201 S. Main Street Plymouth, MI  48170                         
                                       Please include a copy of the attached letter along with the check to ensure it is allocated correctly and for a tax receipt. 
The price of each Oxygen concentrator in India is approximately US $1000 which includes shipping and handling.  Rotary’s goal is to have the funds purchase at least 100 units if not more. 

In my absence John will run the meetings and the board meeting.  This Tuesday will be my last meeting till June 15. 

On a sad note:  Tim Havens brother Michael died recently. If you would like to reach out to Tim his address is 6 Walnut St.
