Hybrid Meeting

Last week we had a “hybrid” indoor/outdoor meeting. Social hour with appetizers and Turpentine Club occurred outside on the deck, as did 50/50 and Happy Dollars. The weather cooperated as did the bugs (mostly).


We then moved indoors – masked and spaced – to hear from Dr. Ingrid Schulze, Founder and Executive Director of Congo Education Partners, an organization that provides higher education and training in the heart of the Congo Basin rainforest. Dr Schulze told us the story of Congo Education Partners and Djolu Technical College, the only accredited technical college in an area the size of North Carolina with a population of 1.5 million. The degree programs track either environmental subjects or health care and are designed to provide training relevant to their environment. Recently, they announced partnerships to advance educational opportunities for women in the Congo.


Welcome Dick Hall

This coming week we will welcome Dick Hall, District 7780 Governor. It will be a great opportunity to meet Dick, get his views on everything Rotary, and show him what we are up to. As with last week, we will have appetizers and Turpentine on the deck and will move inside for Dick’s remarks, where we will space out seating and require masks.


We will attempt to hold a hybrid meeting this week as well with Dick’s AV setup.


We look forward to seeing everyone either in person or remotely. Please plan to participate if you can!
