What happened this week?
- President-elect Mark Vasconcellos noted that the Rotary All Nations satellite had conducted its first meeting recently.
- President Karlene Turrentine has contacted two organizations which will help us with training in difficult conversations as part of our club’s Peace Initiative this year.
- Brad Walker announced that the club’s new website is up and running, with new features that make it even more useful, such as connecting links to the District and Club database (DACdb), an online sales platform for our annual Pecan fundraiser, which has already begun, a calendar, speaker information, and lots more.

Membership Committee chair Leah Flach, assistant chair Helen Holt, and member Matthew Turrentine briefly reported on a new Member Care initiative involving the entire club where small groups of 4 or 5 members, old-timers, and new-comers, become “buddies,” with phone check-ins, occasional social get-togethers, mentoring or answering questions. Look for more information about this new effort to help us stay connected, both now and post-COVID.
Roger Scott announced that the Marga-RELAY-Ville 5k and 8K Race has already raised $4,000 to benefit the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life Franklin County and the Wake Forest Medical Debt Relief Project.
