Dryden Rotary's November 4th virtual meeting had no speaker, instead it held what in Rotary-speak is called a "Club Assembly". This really means a business meeting where all members dealt formally and informally with a variety of items. On the 4th three items were dealt with Revisions to the Club's Constitution and Bylaws, how we would handle our traditional Christmas dinner meeting and changes to our annual Christmas Cheer hamper collection during the pandemic. 

Revision of Constitution & Bylaws

Prior to the Virtual Zoom Meeting all members had received the updated constitution and bylaws. The revisions had been put forward by a committee and reviewed by the Executive. 
After a few questions and clarifications, the revised constitution and bylaws were moved, seconded and adopted.


The 2020 Club Christmas Dinner Issue During a Pandemic

President Anna Traini led a discussion on how to handle the Christmas party and other possible social events. Topics such as playing such virtual games as Bingo, Pictionary, and Trivia were raised.
It was suggestion that we have virtual Christmas party and check with Rotarian Mike at the Best Western to see if he could offer a Christmas meal that members could order and pick up for the meeting on December 16th. Rtn. Patty was to check into this idea.

Christmas Cheer and Food Hampers Issue

Rtn. Caryl Huron sent out the following email :
“With the Covid 19 Pandemic, the Adopt-A-Family program that we participate in every year has been cancelled. However the Dryden Police Services are collecting food hampers to deliver to the Dryden Food Bank to support families in need in the Dryden area. If you would like to donate money through Rotary to support families with food insecurities this year you can send an e-transfer to; treasurer@drydenrotary.org. With the funds we collect, Rtn. Carm and I will make up the hampers and ensure they get delivered. If you are able to donate money for the food hampers, please send your e-transfer by Friday, November 27th."
