Dear Rotarians,

As much as I’d love to use a new “F” for this email, I’ll instead reuse another “F” word, “Fiduciary,” to describe the process and decision made today by your board of directors. This afternoon the Rotary 21 Board of Directors had an in-depth discussion regarding returning to in-person meetings. During this discussion, the Board reviewed the survey sent to club members yesterday. Thank you to the 64 Rotarians who took the survey. The results showed that slightly more Rotarians intended to continue to attend Rotary via Zoom only and the overall comfort of members to return to an in-person meeting dropped (previous survey in November) from the 9 to 6. 
Considering this feedback, and the advice of local health officials given the current spike in Covid cases, the Rotary Club 21 Board has voted to continue Zoom-only format meetings for the next 3 weeks (January 13, 20, 27). The Board of Directors will reconsider this decision at our meeting on January 25th. Our hopes are that the variant will be trending down in our community by then, as it has on the East Coast, and it will be safer to return to hybrid meetings. 
I know we are all extremely eager to return to in-person meetings (especially me), but we also want to continue to be good stewards of health and safety for our members and community. Thank you for your understanding and patients as we navigate these challenging times.  And as always if you have any concerns please reach out to either myself or one of the members of our Board of Directors
