Join your fellow Rotarians and friends for a socially distant autumn gathering! Ochos outdoor, heated patio is the perfect location for a small gathering of Rotarians and friends to enjoy a crisp fall day, a glass of wine, light appetizers, and good company!

Attendance is limited to 30 so register today for this event, and mark your calendars: Sunday, November 1, 4-7 PM. Masks required while inside or not eating/drinking. Feel free to BYO lap blanket!

Todd Fischer urges all club members to join the Polio Plus Society.  All you need to do is open a new email, paste in the text below and send to District PolioPlus Chair Mary Reiman:

I pledge to donate a minimum of $100 each year until the world is certified polio free by the World Health Organization. Please enroll me in the District 5400 PolioPlus Society.

Rotarians and their friends who join the Society will be honored with a special pin and an “End Polio Now” bracelet which will be presented at your Club meeting, or other means if that is not possible.

The Gates Foundation is currently matching donations 2 to 1 making this an even better opportunity, as well as receiving Paul Harris Credit for your donation.  If you donate before World Polio Day (October 24th, 2020), Zone 26/27 will DOUBLE your recognition points (view the full story for instructions).

Rake Up Boise!

Sharing the Bounty
Dozens of Rotarians have enjoyed service weekends at the Boise Farmer's Market, distributing meals, flowers, and groceries to area customers in a responsible, social distancing format, working together in a safe manner while helping the community! Thank you!
On my mind this morning was the first email I'd read. It was from a fellow Rotarian asking when we would meet again in person. That’s the question of the day, isn’t it? Along with: When can I hug my mom again? When can I see a movie in a theater? When can I reschedule that trip I canceled last month? Do I really need pants?
I’d love to have answers. In June, in line with our Governor's staged plan for reopening, we were set to launch a hybrid meeting, wherein those who were interested could attend in person, and others could attend online. Unfortunately, reality forced us to change plans.
Right now, we are in one of the hottest counties in the hottest state in the most afflicted country in the world for this virus in terms of rising numbers of cases per capita.
When will we meet again? Not until that trend is behind us. In other words, not right now. That's it. That's all I have.
