Greetings Rotarians!
Did you check out this months District Newsletter?  Check it out here and while you are on the District Website...why don't you register for District Conference too!  Attend both sessions or just one.  
In light of the concerns surrounding the Coronavirus; the Stroudsburgs Rotary Board thought that it would be appropriate to provide our members preventative and precautionary information surrounding the virus.  The following is information from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention.  You can reference this material and other related items at

The Stroudsburgs Rotary Board acknowledges that each of us have different points of view in regards to this Virus.  We ask that you be respectful of each person's way of handling this topic.  For example: people may not want to shake hands with you or share other types of greetings.  The Board of Directors is not discouraging this type of greeting; however, we ask that you be respectful of individuals who choose otherwise.  Additionally, we will be having more hand sanitizers available at the tables.

We hope that the above information is helpful to you.  And as always, we continue to strive to provide our members a safe and wonderful experience through Rotary.
