Harvest Festival Debrief
According to the calendar it was another live meeting at the Butte Creek Country Club. Except when I arrived, with my wife who wanted to hear Dr. Miller, the door was locked.
All meetings will be at the Butte Creek Country Club, at 6:00 pm, unless otherwise noted.
Sept 7th Zoom Meeting- Harvest Festival Discussion
Sept 14th: @Durham Park – Harvest Festival Planning. Board Meeting at 5:00pm
Harvest Festival Set up.
Sept 19th. Harvest Festival
Sept 28th: Harvest Festival Debrief.
So, President Eric Hoiland did not call the meeting to order. He did not ask anyone to lead the pledge and he did not ask Jim Patterson to give an invocation. And no one introduced any guests, including mine.
I learned that they had closed the Butte Creek Country Club to aerate the greens.
When I got home, I found the following email from President Eric, that had arrived at 1:45 pm.
“I was just informed by BCCC that the course and club are closed today for maintenance, so we can't hold our meeting at that location tonight. We have Dr. Andrew Miller scheduled to present tonight, and with the smoke and heat I don't think we should move the meeting outdoors to Durham Park.
So, we'll cancel tonight's Rotary meeting. Maybe we can reschedule Dr Andrew Miller for our regular meeting in late September or October.
Our next scheduled Rotary meeting is Tuesday, September 14th at Durham Park. We will have a Board Meeting from 5-6 prior to that meeting.”
I look at my email in the morning. One arriving in the afternoon is too late.
Next Club & Board Meetings
As noted above, the next regular meeting will be on Tuesday, September 14th at the Durham Park, beginning at 6:00 pm. I have no information about the provision of food, but I hope there will be some. The subject of the meeting will be Harvest Festival Planning. Note that the draft work schedule is still attached. Bring your comments to the meeting.
Prior to the meeting, at 5:00 pm, there will be a Board meeting.
Zoom Meeting Next Week
This morning I received another email from President Eric scheduling a Zoom Meeting next Tuesday, September 7th, at 6:00 pm (see, I do see emails if they arrive in the early morning). This is to have the discussion of the Harvest Festival, that was intended to be last night. See below:
Eric Hoiland is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.

Jim Kirks Memorial Service
The memorial service for Jim Kirks scheduled for August 28th in the Faith Lutheran Church in Chico, has been canceled due to Covid in the church. It will be rescheduled.
The Rotary Foundation Donations
When every Rotarian gives every year, no challenge is too great for us to make a difference. The minimum gift to The Rotary Foundation is $25.00. An annual $100.00 gift is a sustaining member. Once your donations accumulate to $1,000 you become a Paul Harris Fellow.
It is possible to learn more about The Rotary Foundation on the Rotary web site.
Your gift can be made online or by sending Steve Plume a check made out to The Rotary Foundation to Durham Rotary, P.O. Box 283, Durham, California 95958.
From District Governor Kathy Suvia
Can you believe it's September already? I’ve
been hitting the road and visiting clubs. What a pleasure it is to meet so
many of our district members who are embracing our international theme of
“Serve to Change Lives.” Visiting all 72 clubs is one of the primary
responsibilities of a DG, and I look forward to meeting your club and hearing
about all you are doing in your community.
We did it! Rotarians throughout the world gave
$50,027,000 to end polio! And, the Gates Foundation added $100 million to this
total. Our District contributed $270,000! $80,000 can be attributed to those
who joined the PolioPlus Society. Without your generosity we would have missed the
end goal for contributions by our District, the Gates Foundation and others.
We’re holding at TWO cases of wild polio virus in the world. (There were 97 during this same time period last year.) But, the threat is still there! Should we stop or slow down our efforts to end polio now? NO! 385,000. That’s the number of new babies that are born each day according to the UN. That adds up to 140 million each year. And, each one needs to be vaccinated against polio and other communicable diseases.
Here’s what you can do to help: Join the PolioPlus Society! As little as $10 a month (recurring) will place you in the program. Please email Mike Crosby at MikePolioPlus@District5160.org to join today.
