This week we will return to Cherry Valley Country Club!  The meeting will be held outside on the 2nd floor patio which can be accessed by going through the main entrance and turning left and going through the bar area.  Masks must be worn at all times when inside the building.   A limited breakfast will be available.  We will also send out a Zoom link to the membership so that all can participate.  This week we will not have a speaker but instead have a Club Assembly focusing on the financial picture of both the Club and the Foundation.
Club News
We’re coming up on “giving budget season” where the Club board decides which charities to fund.  Our Giving Budget last year was approximately $55,000 and this is the amount the board wants to spend this year.  The Foundation board would prefer we spend less so as not to draw down our assets in our investment account too quickly.  This is one of the topics that will be addressed at our Club Assembly this week.  But this is not really what I want to discuss in this column.  This is the “how” – what I want to discuss is the “why”.
Please help us support Montgomery families in need as they begin to prepare for returning to in-person learning.  Students will be unable to use lockers. Water fountains will be turned off. Students must wear masks. And of course, wash hands and use hand sanitizer.  The Montgomery Food Pantry is helping with general school supplies, but the 4 items listed are in short supply.  Rotarians can sign up to order items here, or donate dollars via Venmo @mrhrotary.  Any questions please contact Sharon Prosinski.
Last week came the news from Rotary International that Africa has been declared polio free.  The last endemic country, Nigeria, was certified as Polio Free.  The only nations left to go are Afghanistan and Pakistan.  Eradicating polio has been a longtime mission of Rotary and it is exciting to note that we are getting close.  For more info click here for a brief video.
The Scholarship Committee presented the 2020 Scholarship Awards to eight Montgomery High School Seniors at a social distanced ceremony outside at Belle Mead Garage.  And (drum roll please) the scholarship recipients are...
