February 20th, 2020

Welcome to 3rd week of February, 2020.

Thanks for last week’s program by Karen Gritton, Development Director for the American Heart Association, Delaware. An appropriate topic for our Valentine’s Day meeting program. Thanks to Bill Torbert for arranging for Karen to speak.

This week’s program features Marc Garduno of the Veterans of Foreign Wars and has been secured by Daniel Davis who will introduce our guest speaker.

Program date lottery this week. Thank you to all our Colonial Rotary members who’ve volunteered to take responsibility for the upcoming program dates through the end of June 2020. – I’ve been advertising that any dates still open after February 15th would be assigned to members. – I’ve decided instead of just coupling a name with a date, we’d have a live lottery drawing during Friday’s program. – Those responsible for a program, please coordinate your presenter’s needs a week in advance with Amy Dotson-Newton.

PSA – We all get unwanted phone solicitations. Recently, a friend of mine posted a resource on Face Book for blocking those calls. Copy this link, paste it into your web browser for complete information: https://www.consumer.ftc.gov/features/how-stop-unwanted-calls .
