Scuttlebutt September 6th, 2021
Deborah Thompson, DVM from will be joining us this Tuesday on Zoom.
Next week, September 14th is our Membership Meeting.  I just looked at the google docs signup form you all have access to. Seven people from the club have invited folks to this meeting.  This needs to be an “all hands on deck” meeting.  Which means that we all participate.  You do not need to limit invitees to Marbleheaders.  Even when we meeting in person again we will have a zoom component so folks may join us from wherever they are. Please invite family members, folks you work with, friends.  We never know who is waiting for an invitation to help and provide service.  We have heard lately about so many needs. Rotary provides a way to help. When I was working with Judith Green raising funds for the Nepal project, she developed a small poster to illustrate our presentation to folks. The need and the solution were artfully displayed.  We know the need in the world now; Rotary can be the solution.
Not having in-person meetings has been a concern of many in our club. We probably will continue on zoom for the upcoming weeks. We have partial solutions.  1. Our upcoming outdoor service project at Windrush Farm on September 18th from 9-12.  This will be our second time assisting at the farm.  So they have approximate numbers please let Karyn know if you plan to attend.  We have always prided ourselves as a group that provides service.  Let’s live up to that reputation.  AND 2. The Club Picnic at Jess’s home on September 18th beginning at 3:30.  This also will be an outdoor affair lots of distancing and elbow bumping. Please bring family and friends.  Jess and her committee is organizing the pot luck food so please let her know your contribution.
The banner celebrating our 25th anniversary has been ordered.  It will be mounted on the side of the Mason’s building.  Soon our anniversary celebration will be more visible.
Two Afghani families may be relocating in Marblehead.  Stay tuned for how we might be able to help them.  One couple who left with a backpack which was thrown out.  So, they are arriving with nothing.
Our allocations gift to the Dhulikhel Rotary club in Nepal has been used to support food relief to 75 disabled and senior citizens in their area.  These people are struggling for livelihood due to the pandemic. This Rotary club has also supplied tablets to children who are not unable to attend school in person. 
A community service project in which we can participate on Sep 11, 2021 9:30-10:30 a.m.
Please join Sustainable Marblehead and SPUR for our third annual cleanup. We will be mobilizing volunteers to clean trash from our oceans, beaches and parks at over 30 locations. We still have a few slots open, so click here to volunteer!
