Tuesday March 16 at 7:00AM the RDS Board will have its March Meeting via ZOOM. Among topics to be discussed is the return to "live" meetings.  Board members need to know members thoughts on when and how to do this. We could possibly start in the beginning of April  At first we might have a 25 person limit for "live" attendance at Jimmy's Cafe until such time as Steve Reynolds finishes the addition to the Cafe.  Do members want a "hybrid" type meeting, some members live and some via ZOOM?  Do members want to return to weekly morning meetings?   Do  members want "live" Satellite meetings?   Please respond to this Bulletin with thoughst  you have or contact your Board members with your thoughts and ideas.  
Thursday, March 18 at 7:00AM Via ZOOM there will be a Morning Meeting for all Del Sol Rotarians.  Speaker will be Eddie Nunez, Athletic Director for UNM. This is a great opportunity for members to ask Director Nunez about the new Men's basketball coach and other aspects of the UNM sports program.  We anticipate a lively discussion of matters of interest to Lobo Fans.
Let's all have a Great Week putting Service Above Self!!
