Sharing the Bounty
Did you enjoy our September community service activity at the Boise Farmer's Market? About a dozen of your Rotary friends did!
So much so, in fact, that we're going to do it again! On Saturday, October 3, join us in supporting the Boise Farmer's Market and the City of Good in distributing meals and farmer's market goodness to area customers in a responsible, socially distant format.
Step 1: Sign up here to serve with fellow Rotarians on the morning of Saturday, October 3 in one of the 3-hour shifts they're offering between 6 am and 1:30 pm (friends and family 16 and older are welcome). There are a wide range of duties to choose from. Let's fill up the morning with Rotarians!
Step 2: Order a Rotarian at Work t-shirt here and specify you'll need to receive your order in time for this event (no guarantee it will arrive on time, but we can try, and if you already have a Rotary shirt, that will work as well).

Step 3: Email to let us know you'll be there and we'll make sure you have your Rotary mask if you don't already have one.
Then, show up as instructed to receive training on how to do this work in a safe manner while helping the community!

Planting Peace
For another opportunity to enjoy the great outdoors with our Rotary friends and family, after all the Zoom meetings and political upheaval, we will put aside our differences and loss and PLANT PEACE!

Enjoy the great outdoors, AND help the City of Boise restore critical wildlife habitat by transplanting native shrubs from our canceled spring planting to their permanent home between the Boise River and Willow Lane Athletic Complex.  Choose a date & time that works for you and your family: 
·         Sat, Nov 7, 10 am - 1 pm, 
·         Sun, Nov 8, 10 am-noon, or
·         Sun, Nov 8, 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm.

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.
Recent events surrounding the COVID-19 Pandemic are often described as "unprecedented."  And of course in many ways, they are.  However, this isn't the first time the Rotary Club of Boise has experienced a pandemic.
