The 100-plus year old Murfreesboro Rotary Club has presented a check for $2,500 to help support the Murfreesboro City School's Chow Bus.
Rotary President John Hinkle told NewsRadio WGNS . . .
While practicing the COVID-19 mandated STAY AT HOME by Governor Lee, the Rotary's board of directors approved the financial support during a Zoom conference call.
Dr. Hinkle concluded, "As you can imagine, this is a significant stress on our community because, for many students, it is through the school system that they receive their most nutritious meals."
The second big decision is that the club will resume meetings this Tuesday at noon by using Zoom technology.
The club president explained, "For those who do not know, Zoom is an internet conference application. To particpate in the meeting, your computer needs a microphone and video camera. Zoom has a great app for all Androids and Iphones. Download the app on your phone and open the email on your phone, and you should be good to go."
Club members will receive a link to the meeting by email.
Hinkle concluded, "This is a brave new world. Please know that you are in my prayers. If you need anything, please let me know."
Normally, the Murfreesboro Rotary Club meets in the Stones River Country Club at noon every Tuesday. However, they will begin testing "virtual meetings" this coming week.
