Dear District 6630 fellow Rotarians and Friends:
I recently circulated a memo notice to all of you concerning Governor DeWine’s orders limiting public gatherings to those involving 100 or fewer people. Since that time, the Governor has issued multiple additional orders closing restaurants, bars, gymnasiums, and a variety of other types of facilities. Under the circumstances, in-person meetings are probably virtually impossible for all clubs at this time.
This of course leaves Club Presidents and club members with questions about what to do. Peter Tuttle (and all of your AGs) have been circulating a “Every Rotarian Every Week” proposal, which is one way to organize reaching out to all of your members on an organized basis. I highly recommend you look at it, or consider a similar approach. Check with your AG.
Beyond that, with the Governor’s mandatory reduction in meeting size to 50 or fewer, and with the Governor’s “strong” recommendation that no in-person meetings of 10 or more persons take place, I again ask you to consider holding virtually no in-person meetings. This recommendation is also supported by the special consideration to protect individuals who are at higher risk (60 years or older and/or with an underlying health condition). Please use your best judgment but also please err on the side of sustaining Rotary’s goal of disease prevention, and protecting our fellow Rotarians, families, and friends.
If any of you have other creative ideas like Peter Tuttle’s “Every Rotarian Every Week,” I ask that you share them with your AGs so the ideas can be a collection for further distribution. I am attaching suggestions (click here) we received from District 6690 for your review and consideration as well.
I look forward to working with you.
Yours in Rotary Service,
John Reyes
Rotary District 6630 Governor 2019-2020
