With the uncertainties caused by the unprecedented coronavirus health crisis, we Rotarians need to remain in close contact with “social distancing”. To comply with recommendations for health safety, our Board has decided to have Palos Verdes Sunset Rotary “Virtual Meetings” every 2 weeks until further notice, connecting with the “Zoom” app, starting on Tuesday, Mar 31. (See instructions below for downloading to your computer or smartphone, and signing in for a meeting.) Our monthly dues will be temporarily lower to reflect the cost of meals. See our Club Calendar in newsletters or Club website (https://pvsunsetrotary.org/events/calendar) for up-to-date schedule.
Rotary District 5280 is postponing any large District gatherings for the near future, including Pageant of the Arts and District Breakfast. District events scheduled on later dates are being monitored, with potential electronic options for virtual attendance. (The RI convention in Honolulu has been cancelled.)
Stay in touch with our Club & District websites & newsletters. Some other Clubs will also have online meetings that you can attend (see District website for their times & dates & login IDs, at https://rotary5280.org/page/online-club-meetings/, at bottom of page).
Sign up free for Zoom at https://zoom.us/. Download an app to your computer or smartphone. Then, to join a meeting at the scheduled time, go to https://zoom.us/join, type in the meeting ID, and you should be connected to the host of the meeting. You should have both audio and video connection (although if your computer does not have a video camera, you can still connect by audio). You will be able to see and hear the other attendees. Try it, and with a little practice, you can feel as comfortable as with a phone conversation. Welcome to the brave new world!
