Dear fellow Rotarians and friends,

Talk about making lemonade out of lemons! 

Those of us who could get out of our houses, and felt a need to visit with one another after being isolated so long by the weather, met last Thursday for an informal lunch at Bistro 221.  I thought there might be 6-8 of us ... 16 showed up! (That doesn’t even count Dan Foss and his 2 co-workers, who couldn’t stay).  It was truly heart-warming to see one another, hear our survival stories, and re-affirm our relationships.  We missed those who couldn’t make it...hopefully you all have power and internet by now.
And coming up this week:  another chance to socialize without an agenda.  While our team of intrepid volunteers travels to Los Barriles this week, the rest of us will meet Thursday evening 3/18, 5:30pm at Round Table Pizza.  No RSVP needed;  just show up (come a little early to place your dinner order if you wish to eat). 
Otherwise, your Environmental Sustainability committee is finalizing a short questionnaire for you to fill out In follow-up to the video series we’ve been watching over the last 6 months.  Please fill it out when you receive it, to give guidance to your ES committee in proposing further steps forward for our club.  We’d  appreciate a reply by 4/14/23 (approx one month away).
Stay safe!
In service,
Chris (and Carolyn)
