Sunday, April 18, 2021
I'm sure the warmer weather has something to do with it, but opportunities, projects, and events are building momentum since Spring arrived a month ago. Please allow me to share some of them this week. We always appreciate your participation in providing your talents to help us accomplish our mission of not only helping the community-but making the world a better place.
  • Thursday April 22 at 9am the Taste & Tunes 2021 Committee launches itself with a planning meeting for the October 3rd event. I know President-Elect Deb Walter and Chair Dee Dee Foran have an exciting new edition of T&T planned for our most important fundraiser of the year. What is it? Please refer to the email invitation Dee Dee sent out yesterday and find out the specifics. And reach out to me or Secretary Lori Knerr if you want to join the committee and receive T&T meeting information.
  • April 30-May 2 is the Tri-District Conference 2021. Registration for the virtual event is easy through our ClubRunner homepage at AND don't forget to sign up for our "Day Of Service" project on Saturday May 1st from 1pm-5pm. at Centennial Park on Sand Island where we will weed, mulch, trim, plant and paint the area. I hope we have a big turnout to show Bethlehem Rotary cares, and who knows-maybe find a potential new member inspired to join our club. Our work parties always garner nice comments and inquiries from people enjoying "The Island"!
  • Monday May 3 at 7pm our RAGAS (Rotary Action Group Against Slavery) begins regularly scheduled meetings on the 1st Monday of the month. Bethlehem Rotary intends to be the lead club in District 7430 on fighting human-trafficking, bringing awareness of the problem to the public, and most importantly helping the victims heal from their nightmare. We need to increase member participation AND to invite non-Rotary members who have an interest in the cause to participate in these meetings and learn more about our efforts. Please contact Lori Knerr or Patrick Morgan to ask questions, or to join the committee, or to advise them that you know of a non-Rotarian who would like an invitation to a meeting.
  • Saturday May 22:  ShelterBox is partnering with Gloria Ferrer to bring you a personal wine tasting event from the comfort of your own home.
    • What to Expect from your Virtual Wine Tasting
      • Tasting Led by Certified Gloria Ferrer Wine Educator
      • High level overview of the wine making process
      • Specific nuances and traits of each style you are tasting
      • Opportunity to ask our Wine Educator questions.
      • Suggested pairings for the wines sent prior to tasting
      • Live virtual tasting from the Gloria Ferrer Vineyard - link to be sent to registered email address
    • What to Expect from this May 22nd Virtual Wine Tasting
      • Everything above AND an opportunity to hear about ShelterBox’s current work.
      • Come for the great wine, but stay to hear how ShelterBox is providing shelter to families who have lost their homes due to disaster (and doing so amid a pandemic).
    • Deadline to order your wine package is April 23rd for NJ and April 30th for all other applicable states.  Learn more and purchase your tasting kit today at: event is open to everyone; please share with others you know would enjoy this unique experience!
DON'T MISS our regular Club meeting this Wednesday at noon on Zoom to find out some amazing information!:
  1. Past President & Nominating Committee Chair Ham Malek will present the slate of officers for 2021-22.
  2. What do a Bethlehem Rotary project, trees, and Past District Governor Herb Klotz all have in common? Lisa Jordan will give us the details.​​​​​​​
  3. Master Business Coach Michelle Landis of Pinnacle 7 is our featured speaker, giving us critical strategies for success in business, ideas on high-impact marketing, and building a power network.
Yours in Rotary service,
President Pete Mickolay
