Aloha Windward Sunrise Rotarians and Friends,
 
As we are all doing our part to combat the spread of COVID-19, Rotary District Governor Eric Kaler has formally recommended Rotary clubs do not meet in person during the rest of March and into April. Tentatively, we will resume our meetings in May. The Rotary International Convention in Honolulu has also been canceled.
 
You can stay informed with Rotary International's latest COVID-19 coverage at this link.
 
In good news, take a look at this card we received for our support of the Kahauiki Village! Thank you, Windward Sunrise Rotarians for your financial gifts to this powerful initiative to help families experiencing houselessness on Oahu.
 
Missing Rotary? (Of course you are!) There are opportunities to meet online with E-clubs. In our Hawaii District, we have two e-clubs that you may want to check out, as well as the first-ever e-club in Rotary! 
 
The Rotary E-club of Hawaii will be meeting online. Please go to their website for http://www.rotaryeclubhawaii.org/e-meetings for information.
 
WE Rotary meets on the 1st and 3rd Monday at 3pm HST.  Today they have a special online meeting and Kat Huber will be talking about the Coronavirus.  Their web address is:   http://rotaryeclubdistrict5000hawaii.org/
 
Come participate in the Rotary Spring Training Assembly online! The District has shared a Spring Training Assembly webinar schedule with each class lasting Saturdays, 9:00 am to noon. You can pick what topics interest you most -  they are diverse and wide-ranging, applicable to business interactions and management! They can also help us all understand a little bit more about our Oahu community and the social issues we face. Check it out:
 
Apr 4 - Youth Service, Community Service, Vocational Service, education/literacy
Apr 11 - International Service, Grant Management, climate change/environment
Apr 18 - Public Image, Online Resources, Disease prevention/health
May 2 - Membership, Club Service, Club Trainer, Peace initiatives
May 9 - Rotary 101, Foundation 101, Homelessness on Oahu
May 16 - Secretary, Treasurer Basics, Leadership Opportunities, Mental health/Suicide Prevention Update
 
Zoom online meeting webinar codes and directions will be posted on the rotaryd5000.org website (left side) and will be sent out to members via e-mail (I will send them to our friends and future Rotarians). You can listen in on just the ones that interest you or do them all.  I guarantee you that you will get a ton of great information and ideas - and please take notes so we can share ideas at our next club meeting in May!

Thank you for all you do and please do not hesitate to reach out to me if you have further questions or concerns.

In service,

Brenna Dicks
Windward Sunrise Rotary Club President
