Sunday June 21, 2020 (Happy Fathers' Day)
Chris Nelson opened our Wednesday, June 17th meeting by welcoming Rotarians to share their memories of Dr. Matz.  She then led us in prayer using an updated version of Psalm 23.
In announcements, we chatted about the Sand Island park cleanup. Several folks got out there this week to pull weeds and plants flowers and shrubs.
Our Tastes & Tunes Committee met after our Rotary meeting and is working on hard on planning a Dessert Edition event.
A meeting took place for the new Interact Club at Liberty High School. Students there reached out to us after the Key Club lost its Kiwanis sponsorship. We’re excited to welcome them to Rotary!
Jill Long spoke about a staff member from the Arts Academy Middle School and her escape from a domestic violence situation. The family is in need of cash and grocery gift cards. You can contact Jill if you’re interested in helping.
We had a very exciting program from Touchstone Theatre. Rotarian Lisa Jordan introduced the Young Playwrights’ Lab Festival, which works with elementary-aged students as an after school and summer program. Students participate in theatre exercises, brainstorming sessions, and ultimately, create a one-act play. In its 15th year, the Festival was forced to go online and Touchstone ensemble members produced the plays via Zoom and aired the Festival on Youtube. The full festival can be seen here: The Festival is supported, in part, by a grant from the Bethlehem Rotary Foundation. 
Rotarians today were able to see one of the one-act plays, "The Radioactive Octopus" by a Donegan Elementary Student, during the meeting.
Join us next week for our changeover meeting, as we welcome Pete Mickolay as our 2020-2021 Bethlehem Rotary President. It has been an honor and pleasure for me to serve this past year as your president. Thank you to each of you for your dedication to keeping our Club engaged during this challenging time.
Yours in Rotary service,
President Thea Lind
