We'll start this week's newsletter off with a free announcements. 
  • Tastes & Tunes planning has begun under chair Jill Long. We're looking at a hybrid/virtual event focusing on desserts. I know it's going to be a lot of fun! Look for future information on this event!
  • President-elect Pete will be shortly sending out the sign up for park clean-up. This will be a distanced event but will still allow for multiple Rotarians to assist. 
  • Elections for the 2020-2021 officers will take place June 10. Please plan to attend and vote via zoom or email. We need a quorum for this motion to pass.
  • Look to attend Training Tuesdays from our district. You'll learn information about club administration as well as what some other clubs are doing. I'll be on this week's call to talk about our district grant. 
  • Bethlehem Rotary was approved for a group district grant to help as a result of Covid-19. We will receive $1500 to support the YMCA's youth food program.  I'm just getting details about this now and will share more Wednesday. 
  • Planning continues for our international grant in Jamaica. 
We had a very interesting program last week as we welcomed several small business owners to share about how the pandemic and resulting shutdowns have effected their businesses. This was led by President-elect Pete Mickolay and featured Sherri from Twisted Olive and Jen from Simplicity Salon. Each shared a unique and very different perspective. Pete is seeing an uptick in business due to sales of plexiglass guards, cleaning and gardening equipment. Sherri and her husband, Steve have had to adjust to takeout and delivery service for their restaurant. Jen's salon is still closed and she and her employees are on unemployment. it was a very active program with much discussion about what may happen in the future. Several Rotarians have suggested a similar program as we move through phases of reopening so look for that in the future. 
This week we welcome Steve Repash from the Bethlehem Water Authority. 
Yours in Rotary service,
President Thea Lind
