Creativity in Challenging Times
We are all living in a very challenging time. It is good to see that the human spirit grows stronger in such times. A good example is our own Rick Harrell. Anyone who knows Rick knows of his musical talent. So what could be better than a song from Rick? How about Rick in a self-made quartet? Watch here, and enjoy!
Innovation in Rotary
In response to the pandemic, Rotary International held a telethon on Saturday, May 2, 2020 to raise over $1 million dollars in the fight against COVID-19. The telethon was on Facebook Live and simulcast in eight languages. We heard stories from Rotarians, Rotaractors, Interactors, and Rotary Youth Exchange students from all over the world about what they are doing to help in their communities. We also enjoyed some wonderful music. If you missed the telethon, watch it here.
