We care about the health and safety of our member and community. As we continue to monitor and learn more about the spread of the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), we want to share some information with you. You’ve probably seen the following guidelines before, but they’re important and worth repeating:

Stay at home and do not travel.
If you need medical attention and it is a non-emergency, please call your doctor, do not attempt to travel to the emergency room.
If you need medication, please check with your local pharmacy. NOTE: Many of the larger drug chains will deliver without additional charge.
⦁ Wear a cloth mask that fully covers your mouth and nose.
⦁ Wear gloves when going outside and keep them on while outside.
⦁ Wash your hands or use hand sanitizer after each use of disposable gloves.
⦁ When returning home take off shoes and clothing leaving them by the door.
⦁ Wash your face and hands before touching anything in your home after going outside.
⦁ If using a cloth mask, wash it every day in hot soapy water and air dry.

Book Drive- We are still collecting books for the Sharing Summer Stories. Set aside all of gently used books. Aurora Rotary is partnering with Aurora Public Schools and Cherry Creek Schools to provides books for elementary school students to read over the summer. If  you have books for a little older audience set those aside as well for student family members.
Encouraging member engagement when possible for those people or members needing support.  Please stay in touch with your fellow members.
- A question came up about dues and there won't be any near term changes as it pertains to dues.  If you have questions please reach out to Regina to have them answered. 
- Salvation Army update
Captain Sam LeMar provided an update on all the activities that SA Aurora has been involved.  They have provided 741 boxes of food and served 1700 people in Aurora.  They continue to have needs for the food pantry primarily associated with proteins, can goods and any non-perishable products.  If you are willing and able please drop these items by the Corps building on Quari.  They are also accepting monetary donations  and prefer because it allows the team to purchase those items for the food pantry that are of greatest need.

  • 42,802 prepared meals
  • 1,797 food boxes

They also have been aggressively involved in working with the City of Denver to utilize facilities for their homeless guests to insure the social distancing mandate is being met in this environment.

- State of City - Postponed until the fall.  Appears to be a good thing because they are still selling tables according to Member Patti Bateman.
