Virtual Meeting Tomorrow, Jan 4, at Noon
  Our speaker will be Rotarian Tore Knos from the Playa Venice, California Rotary Club, speaking on "Rotary Disaster Aid -- 5 Deployments".   Dr. Knos has a reputation as a very good speaker.  Click on his picture for a link to a very interesting resume!   Perhaps you remember that he spoke to us a few weeks ago about "Rotary Fundraising on the Appalachian Trail" but there were serious technical difficulties during his virtual presentation.  
     The virtual meeting will be hosted again by President, Sheila Mark Note the meeting will begin at 12 Noon.  We will adjourn at 1 PM, but are able to carry the meeting longer for anyone who wishes to stay on to chat.

     Again, Athens Rotary Club expresses thanks to front-line workers everywhere by thanking our own healthcare workers.  On a rainy Christmas Eve, "Thank You!" signs were placed beside sidewalks near Ohio Health O'Bleness Hospital to thank our healthcare workers for their service during the COVID-19 pandemic.  President Sheila Mark was assisted by Diane McVey and her husband Craig Johnson in placing the signs.  
     The signs were already available from similar previous events (all held in conjunction with the Athens Sunrise Rotary Club):  on June 29 held again at Ohio Health O'Bleness;  on July 14 held at the Athens County Health Department; and on July 21 at Station 51 of the Athens County Emergency Medical Service (ACEMS) on West Union Street).
