           Weekly Bulletin
Beginning with the February 3rd Membership meeting, we will re-commence having hybrid meetings.  This means that you can participate in the meeting through Zoom or you can attend at Little America and have lunch.  The seating will be four to a table and you must wear a mask except when eating.  Social distancing will be observed.  This decision was made by the  Rotary Board at their January 27th meeting.  The hybrid meeting format is in effect until further notice.

    St. Patrick's Day Celebration
    Mar 17, 2021
    Carey Hartmann, Laramie County Librarian
    St. Patrick's Day Celebration
    Many of us only know Ireland through the Americanized celebration of St. Patrick’s Day.  The Irish love a good party!
    Carey Hartmann is the County Librarian for Laramie County Library System.  She is a fourth generation Wyomingite with roots in Big Horn and Johnson counties back to the early 1870’s.  Her mother was born in Dungarvan, County Waterford, Ireland.  Carey will cover some eclectic information about Ireland and the Irish to reframe our understanding of the people and culture.  Green Beer and Irish Whiskey will be served

    If you want to say, "Hi!" and catch up with each other before the meeting, please "join" the virtual meeting any time after 12:00.  You will be able to unmute yourself and connect for about fifteen minutes.  When you first join the meeting, you will be in a "waiting room" and we will let you in as soon as we can. At 12:15, we'll get the meeting started.

    Consider a Rotarian
    Dave Bartlett was our "Consider a Rotarian" this past week.  Dave's company does appraisal services and he gave some examples of how you appraise items using different types of cowboy hats as an example.  
    Dave has been a Rotarian since 2009 and has many fond memories of his service in Rotary. He has participated in RYLA, clean water projects in Africa, working with Habitat for Humanity and Rotary gave him the incentive to give blood.  Most recently his time served on the Cheyenne Rotary Foundation Board has been interesting.
