Club Assembly, Member Q&A This Week
President Rob and PE Del have announced that this week will be a Club Assembly and opportunity for member's Q & A session.  Rob envisions addressing 3 key issues, and any other that may be on member's minds.  
A.  Fourth quarter billing for FY 2019-2020 (ending 6/30/20).
B.  RCFC Venue: Status of First Presbyterian Church (FPC)/Drake Centre venue options, including results of recent online survey.  
C.  RCFC's status with regard to COVID-19 pandemic and future meetings.
Guatemala Distributes Relief
PEN John Trone announced that our Rotarian friends in Guatemala, Rotarios Chiquimula de la Sierra, are distributing medical protection supplies, 200 bags of food and 200 hygiene kits to their local community.
Weapons of the Old West
Last week, RCFC member Bob Meroney added to his long list of Rotary speaker credits by presenting “Weapons of the Old West”.  Not only has he studied these handguns and knives, he has built replicas of many.  His talk was illustrated by several of his replicas as well as few videos of guns being fired.  A disclaimer - this review is sadly limited by the absence of these illustrations.
April BoD Meeting Report: $10,000 Donation
President Rob Marschke reports that the board made several announcements and decision at the April meeting.
  • An anonymous RCFC member made a $10,000 donation to the First Presbyterian Church to help pay for the projector and lens upgrades needed.  This will smooth the way for RCFC to move to FPC by reducing significantly the funding needed to upgrade the projection system.  Thank you, Anonymous!!
  • The Board of Directors approved 1) new By-Laws drafted by John Trone, Robin Steele, Del Benson, Rob Marschke and Phyllis Abt, and 2) a new Constitution, recommended by Rotary International.
  • Del Benson announced that Bill Timpson will be the new Rotarian leader of the Rotaract Membership.
  • Marty Bachman announced that although RYLA and Young RYLA summer camps are canceled this year, graduating seniors enrolled this year will be eligible to enroll again next year.
Tablets Keeping ICU Patients in Touch With Family
RCFC Members Tanis Roeder and Annette Geiselman have teamed to bring family connections into local ICUs.  After hearing from an ICU nurse friend how difficult it is for patients not allowed to have visitors, Tanis wanted to find a way to make sure all patients in ICU could stay in touch with family and friends while in isolation.  So, she started raising money and worked with fellow Rotarian Annette Geiselman to deliver Amazon tablets to Poudre Valley Hospital, Medical Center of the Rockies and the Greeley Hospital.
