Today we discussed fund raiser ideas for this Spring. 
Funds would go towards projects / causes outside of the children education realm that our mini grants cover.
Rotary Foundation Dinner coming up January 20, 2021 - join via ZOOM - register below:
Our district continues to participate in the Rotary Int'l 90 yr legacy of sponsoring intercultural youth exchange.  Presently for 2021, our district has 4 high school applicants.  One for a short term (summer) exchange and three for the 2021-22 long term (1 academic year) exchange. The district has chosen to continue to move forward on this important activity yet are mindful that the exchanges are dependent on conditions in the U.S. and partnering countries..
5,000 masks coming our way next Monday from District 7890
We will need an extra hand to pick up and deliver to Agape, Brians Angels, possibly schools, hospitals, Bristol Boys and Girls Club
 ATTENTION: Looking for Speakers.  Suggestions were made to get a speaker from Bristol Health to talk about the pandemic / mental health; someone from the business community, Pat Stebbins - homeless population, BBHD - Marco Palmeri (Les will contact), Public works - talking about recycling and sorting
