What have we been up to?


Monday, June 6 was our club's first meeting of the Rotary year, and our first meeting with the new board, including David Weir as Club President.
David has circulated the slideshow from this meeting, which details much of what we can expect from this Rotary year.


Unfortunately, due to timing conflicts and technical difficulties on zoom, our scheduled speakers were unable to present to us as planned.
We look forward to inviting them to another meeting in the near future and will keep you posted!

This is a very difficult time for so many people around the world, but there are still many ways we can help from the safety of our homes. This is one of them:

They have recently put out a request for individual donations to aid in the COVID-19 medical efforts in Belize and they have committed to 100% of the donations received from April - August 2020 going to support Belizeans dealing with the aftermath of the Coronavirus pandemic.
