TUESDAY JUNE 30, 2020 -  ZOOM MEETING - "WHAT'S UP, VLR?"
 
 
President Lynn King opened the meeting.
Members observed a few moments of silent meditation followed by the pledge to the flag, led by Sonny Huntley
 
Lynn thanked those who are rotating off the board - Julie Camp-Tome, Chuck Wiseman, Jim Dixon and Alicia Powell
 
Bev James announced the scholarship winner - a very deserving student, Olivia Waters.  Sonny and Bev conducted the interview process.
 
John Farrenkopf, Treasurer, reported that a total of $14,500 in gift cards were given to Deep Well for distribution.  The cards which are for food purchases are a result of out Rotary Relief fund raiser and the District 7770 Covid-19 Grant.  
 
While we have not been meeting, leadership have been busy closing out the old year and preparing for the new Rotary year starting July 1.  Some have attended Zoom or virtual training sessions.  Our club has completed the child protection form making sure all our members are approved to work with children.  The Area4 Presidents met four weeks ago to discuss plans.  Sunset is the only club that has been able to meet in person, with the other club's having difficulties because of our venues.  The concept of "hybrid" meetings has been developed, where those who wish, meet at a designated venue and the meeting is also available on Zoom.
 
USCB is not going to open the campus until the last week in August.  When our meetings do resume, breakfast will not be served as a buffet.  Options are still being discussed.
 
Save the date - July 14 we will have a Hybrid meeting.  New officers and board will be inducted.  More details to follow
 
Currently District attendance requirements are waived.  
 
Each Wednesday the District will have an "all club" Rotary meeting in place of the normally scheduled C-Wrap.  This is for any clubs that are not currently meeting in person or virtually on a regular basis.  You should get email notice of C-Wraps (Monday and Friday are still regular C-Wrap meetings) with directions how to link in.  
 
District Governor Pauline Levesque (2020-2021) will begin the new year by making her club visits via Zoom.  She still wants to visit each club personally and will do so as soon as it becomes safer.  
 
About 20 members were in attendance at our "What's Up, VLR" meeting and shared updates on what is happening with them.  
 
Bottom line, it was great to see so many and hope that we can get back to normal soon!
 
 
Van Landingham Rotary Club enjoys a beautiful venue for our weekly meetings.  Since January 2020, our breakfast meetings each Tuesday morning at 8:00 AM have been held at the USCB-HHI campus, One Sandshark Drive, just off Pope Avenue. on the Island's southend. The hospitality shown to our Club by the leadership at USCB-HHI has been heartwarming and their efforts to put forth outstanding food and beverage service have been most welcomed by our members.
 
However, COVID-19 has caused our meetings to be suspended since the middle of March.  In addition to the guidelines for public safety set forth by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), DHEC (Dept of Health and Environmental Control) and regional and local leaders, public gathering were suspended and as of June 1 parameters still exist with regards to safe public distancing and public gatherings. 
 
In addition, the University of South Carolina system is still working to establish when their campuses, including USCB-HHI,  will re-open to the public.
 
We hope to have some guidance and information to be able to make decisions in June with regards to reviving our weekly meetings to coincide with the NEW Rotary year 2020-2021 which begins July 1st. 
 
Stay tuned and until then - stay safe and Be Smart - Stay Six Feet Apart!
