LSRC BULLETIN  01-14-2022  SERVE to CHANGE LIVES

Happy New Year!  I'm sick of hearing that phrase already. Here's a good reply:  So what's up with you in twenty twenty two?  Join us each and almost every Friday for The Livingston Sunrise Rotary Club breakfast, held at the LESA building in Howell.
 
Socialization begins about 7:15 am
The meeting rings in promptly at 7:30. Please help set up and help tear down. Bring someone to breakfast as a guest. Pay Madam Treasurer only $5. Do NOT pass Go, do NOT collect $150. Late? Cough up a buck to the Fine Sheriff.

 

 

BRING at least $5 for the 50/50 DRAWING.  (The POT is at $862 and growing... there are about 10 cards left.)  Exact change is appreciated! If you buy one set of tickets, the odds are less than 1 in 30 that your number will be called. (Assuming 25 buy one set of tickets.) Wouldn't you like to double the chances with a 1 to 15 odds? Just purchase two sets of tickets for $10.

You have a better chance of picking the Ace of Hearts THIS WEEK! Play strategically! Will it come down to the last card again? All proceeds help pay for President's Night 2022.

ZOOM - ZOOM !
If you cannot make it to a meeting in person, please join us via ZOOM and keep your VIDEO camera on so we can see your smiling face!
If you do show up, remember the CDC has recommended that EVERYONE wear a mask INDOORS, even if you have been vaxxed AND boosted.  This Omicron variant of CoViD-19 is so contagious, it has created many, many breakthrough infections, even with people who have had CoViD-19. Masks, however, are NOT mandatory, but highly encouraged for Rotary Club members and their guests.  Feel free to social distance as well.

ROTARIANS in ACTION  JANUARY 2022
GLEANERS' CUPBOARDS ARE BARE 

Gleaners needs us to help restock the personal care items they give to needy people and families. Tucked away in your bathroom closet, you must have some sample sizes of deodorant, shampoo, toothpaste, shaving cream, little bars of soap, hand cream, shaving cream... you know, the stuff you'd pick up at hotels when you used to travel PRE CoViD-19. I don't know about you, but since I bought a Sonic toothbrush, I've been accumulating a ton free toothbrushes from my dentist for the last 10 years. Bring those!

If YOUR cupboard is bare, you also can pick up some sample sizes at your local grocery store, Meijers, CVS or Walgreens. Bring them to Friday's meeting and Terry Defina will collect them and give them to Gleaners.

SUPPORT GUATEMALA LITERACY SCHOLARSHIP PROJECT for $100

Dear LSRC Members,

Last year 20 of us took it upon ourselves to add two students for scholarships in the Rise Program and contributing to breaking the cycle of poverty in Guatemala.
 
Those of us who have received reports know how well our 2 students have done as well as the ongoing amazing success of the program.
 
In order for these TWO students to remain on scholarship, we need to step up for renewal. Since this is a 501c3, we can run this through the LSR Foundation (as we did least year) but we need the commitment of at least 20 of us at $100 each.
 
Please reply to me with your commitment and I'll count them up, send you the payment info for the Foundation and coordinate the renewal. Please note we only have mid-January to get this done.
 
If we get more than the $2,000 we can look at a third scholarship, or partial third scholarship.
 
By the way, I'm in again for $100.

Jim
