The Board of Van Landingham Rotary convened this week and unanimously decided to suspend our Tuesday morning meetings for the next two weeks. 
 
There will be NO MEETINGS on Tuesday, March 17 or March 24 and further notices will be given if deemed necessary. The USCB-HHI campus will also be closed for an additional spring break and we will monitor their continued decisions as well.. This Board decision was made with respect to an abundance of precautions being taken over growing concerns of COVID19 in the Lowcountry and the recommendations from CDC and local/regional/state health authorities.  
 
Area Rotary Club presidents are also in communication and it appears they are expected to take similar actions with their Club meetings. 
 
Regarding the upcoming RISE AGAINST HUNGER event, and at the urging of the Area Club Presidents, AG Dot Jeger is spearheading efforts to have the RISE AGAINST HUNGER meal packing occur at a later date to ensure successful participation and results to mirror our area Club's financial commitment to the project. Updates on a final decision for the March 22 event will be provided as soon as it becomes available.  
 
It goes without saying there is enough COVID19 information for the taking, but we continue to encourage even the simplest of personal precautions to include - handwashing, social distancing, and monitoring of personal health conditions as we navigate this unchartered territory together.

    The speaker today gave us information about the Technical College of the Lowcountry.  It has over 4,000 students enrolled annually in both credit and non credit programs.  Of those 30 % attend full time. The breakdown is 68% are female, 50% white, 30% African American and 10% Hispanic.  The college has served 85,000 students since 1968. Only 24% go on to 4 year programs, with most all of them prepared to enter the work force.  The newest announcement at TLC is the creation of The Culinary College.  
    Following two weeks of venue trials, and overwhelming support of the membership to make a move, the Board voted this week to change our weekly meetings to the new USCB-HHI campus (One Sandshark Drive).  The beautiful facility, its accessibility, state of the art technology and the University's hospitality and willingness to work closely with the Club, will be great assets to Van Landingham Rotary moving forward.  We look forward to our first official meeting this TUESDAY, JANUARY 28th when we welcome JOSH GRUBER, to address our group "All About the Town".  Please join us, bring a guest - and let's truly celebrate our Club's new home.


    We would like to send our weekly bulletin to friends and visiting Rotarians, and to that end we are inviting those interested in receiving
    club news to provide an email address. Forms are available at the check-in desk at every meeting. You can also sign up at the bottom of the home page or click the Subscribe button at the top of each bulletin.
