Notes From the March 11th Club Meeting
Happy Dollars
  • Bill Agler was happy to have received his second Covid vaccine. He would like to invite his fellow vaccinated Rotarians to join him at his home for the next Rotary meeting
  • Dave Bennion was happy his elk hunting buddies have all had their vaccines. Now if he could just get over his "anti social behavior" ...
  • Tom Wilford is happy Kevin Learned is finally getting a haircut. He was also happy to have recently taken a 400 mile road trip.
  • Todd Fischer was happy to have made five Rotary meetings in five days.
  • Beth Markley was happy her son was vaccinated and was taking a couple of days to fish with his grandpa in Emmett. She was also happy to have been named a new member of the Friends of Minidoka board of directors.
Visiting Rotarians and Guests
  • Richard Davey introduced Noah Bush as a prospective new club member. Noah is an attorney with Hawley Troxell and was a Rotary Youth Exchange Student in Spain.
  • Michael Foley is a prospective club member. He moved to Boise recently after working all over the US in investment banking.
Last Week's Program
Our speaker this week was Lianda Abraham, who was joined for part of the meeting with her sister Salina. With their sister Haben, they make up the singing trio the EriAm Sisters. Salina talked about their parents' journey from Eritrea (where her father was a freedom fighter in that country's war of independence) to the Netherlands, and then from there to the United States. The sisters were raised with "Coming to America" stories and music and became known as a musical trio after becoming semi finalists on America's Got Talent in 2009.

Have you missed a meeting because you can't find the zoom link? It's the same from week to week. Put it in your recurring calendar listing so it's handy!
As always, if possible, please name your profile and consider turning on your video while in the meeting. It helps us ensure security (no Zoom bombers), and helps you engage with your fellow Rotarians.
IMPORTANT NOTE: For prospective members who sign up while we're meeting remotely, the club will waive the one-time membership fee and the community benefit charge (which, while we're meeting remotely, supports meals for Interfaith Sanctuary), email Membership Chair Richard Davey for more details.
More About Your Membership
While we are meeting remotely, we will continue to include the standard meal charge of $77.34 in our bi-monthly invoices, only now it will be called "community benefit," to reflect where the money is really going. When we cannot meet over meals, your payment helps us keep our lease on the meeting room and storage space, and also benefits our community (most of our meals are donated to Interfaith Sanctuary). This all enables a seamless return to our in-person meetings once it is safe.
For those who continue to pay for this community benefit thank you.
If you are not able to catch a live zoom meeting, email for a link to a recording of the meeting later.
