MORRIS – The Morris Rotary Club is beginning to resume their activities as the new Rotary year began on July 1st. We had our first in person dinner meeting Monday, July 13th at Rathbun Park in Morris after not meeting in person since mid-March, said new president Mike Virgil.

A committee lead by president-elect Beth Child, examined all aspects of how the Club could start to get back to somewhat normal activities again. The Committee came up with a multi-phased plan that was presented to the Board for consideration. The plan considered social distancing, safety, and health concerns of its membership in its recommendations. It was decided to have Board meetings on the first week of the month, Club dinner meetings on the second Monday, Zoom meetings on the third Monday, and a community service event on the fourth Monday through the month of September.

Board and dinner meetings will be held at the pavilion in Rathbun Park. Dinners are individually boxed and delivered to the site. Members are asked to socially distance at all in-person meetings and wear face covering except while eating. The Club has already done a highway clean-up event this spring, and will be doing a landscape project at the Morris Central School main entrance on the fourth Monday of July.
