Below is City of Lakes Rotary Club President Jewelie Grape's letter updating all of us on the club's response to the Coronavirus:
Hello, City of Lakers. This email contains an update from the Minneapolis City of Lakes Rotary Club board meeting this morning. Please know that your board cares about you and wants to support you however we can during these uncertain times.
1.   In-person club meetings will be cancelled through April 1 (and maybe longer).
2.  If your committee needs the club’s free conference call number, let me know.
3.  We are working to set up virtual meetings (most likely using Zoom) with webinar-like presentations the mornings of Wednesday, March 25 and Wednesday, April 1. Stay tuned for more on this.
4.  We are also looking into virtual happy hours, coffees, etc. Thanks to Brock for this fun idea! 
1.  Social distancing does not mean social isolation. Pick up the phone and call your Rotary friends. Or email them. Or use social media to stay in touch (City of Lakes has a Facebook page - join it!).  I will be sending a weekly email with announcements, updates, jokes, pictures, and ‘Happy Bucks” type news during the weeks we do not meet in person. Please send me information you want to share by each FRIDAY MORNING. Note – I have the right to edit what you send 😊
2.  We all have specialized skills/knowledge that can be shared to support each other during these tumultuous times.  Let me or the vocational service team (Jeff Meacham, Steve Morris) know how you can help and we will figure out a way to make these “internal resources” available to club members who may need them.  As an example, attached to this email is a practical list of HR issues to consider during the coronavirus outbreak that I prepared for my clients. Feel free to re-distribute to anyone who may find this helpful.
It’s difficult to know how to help when we are all supposed to be hunkering down at home.  Our club supports the Sheridan Story, CES, the Jerry Gamble Boys & Girls Club and other worthwhile programs that provide food to our community. As soon as we get the “all clear” to start socializing again, I’m sure these organizations will need volunteers. We will keep you updated on opportunities as they arise.
I’m just a telephone call or email away if you have additional thoughts or need anything…
Stay healthy,
2019-20 Minneapolis City of Lakes Rotary Club President
