Brief Report on Virtual Happy Hour on Jan. 21st.
     I’m sorry if you missed our Rotary Happy Hour & Scavenger Hunt on January 21st.  It was more fun than any of us expected and a well-timed change of pace from the week of news binging.  We had a lot of laughs as people came up with their finds, items such as an empty toilet paper roll, a raw potato, a Rotary pin, and more. Competition was fierce, but Diane McVey (with Craig behind the scenes) won the first place prize.  The second place prize was taken by Alan & Sue Boyd and the third place was taken by Dave & Pat Palmer.  Scott Malcom and his daughter Ann Paulins might have done a little better if they had played at Ann’s house, as Scott had to run upstairs for some of his items.  Have you watched Scott run recently?  Mike Noel texted me after the event, expecting to get another point added to his score when he finally found an empty toilet paper roll on the floor chewed up by the dog.  Sorry, Mike, it was too late.LOL.  Tara Gilts served as the official score keeper. We all decided to have another event soon. Ideas for a fun event are being entertained (get it?) You won’t want to miss it.
Continuing to Thank Front-line Workers
      In early January, we continued to recognize the work of Front-line Healthcare workers by placing signs of appreciation near their work place.  This time the signs were placed at Echoing Hills of Southeast Ohio with assistance of Athens Rotarian Mark Hutchinson.  Mark is their Regional Director.  See more photo's in our photo album.
