Mark your calendars! Our 12:30 pm meeting on June 24 will be a virtual celebration of President Dan's year as our Club President.  Dan has led our group with great skill through some challenging times and we accomplished much in spite of the obstacles!  Join us to raise a virtual toast to our fearless leader!
The "Shelter-in-Place" order now makes it impossible for us to meet in person, but we have been enjoying online, "virtual" meetings that include scheduled speakers!  Attendance has been good and we plan to continue this format until we are able to meet in person once again.
 
In order to accomplish this, we use the online teleconferencing service "Zoom". Each week, members receive an e-mail from Club Secretary, Horst Rademacher, with instructions on how to join the upcoming meeting, including the requisite meeting ID and password. Members can join video conferencing from their computer or via phone.
 
Upcoming speakers/events include: June 24: Virtual Demotion Party for President Dan; July 1: Virtual Induction Meeting for new Club President, Ken Jew; July 8: Prof. Henry Brady, Dean of UC Berkeley's Goldman School of Public Policy on the 2020 Election; July 15: Prof. John Harte of UC Berkeley's Department of Energy and Resources will speak about "Breaking and Restoring Our Life Support Systems. 
 
 
Acting quickly in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and in support of those on the front lines of treating the virus, Orinda Rotary members raised $5,000 to deliver much-needed washable and reusable medical gowns for staff serving at local hospitals. With an additional $1,000 from the Orinda Rotary Endowment, we delivered over 500 gowns.  As a supplemental benefit, gowns were sewn by a local tailor, helping to keep his shop going during the economic downturn. If you would like to contribute, please contact Club President Dan Gannett.
