Rotary Weekly Reporter: August 12, 2021

The History Committee of the Rotary Club of Wilmington has set a goal of embracing the Club’s history and that includes the history of the club and its context in the city and the region. The Fellowship Committee has joined this effort and will offer a chance to take in some history this Thursday, August 12, we’ll forgo our usual meeting for a walking tour of Market Street.

Please join the Delaware Historical Society for a walking tour of Market Street—consider it a stroll of a meeting. We’ll convene at the Hotel duPont side of Rodney Square at Noon. We’ll walk for 60-75 minutes down the heart of the commercial district exploring its social and architectural history and current efforts to preserve and activate historic buildings on the street. We’ll end at the Delaware Historical Society, where restrooms are available.

Rotary Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update #1

Dear Rotarians,

Everywhere you go you hear about COVID-19. Your Club and District have been listening and discussing ongoing situations in our district 7630, which spans across Delaware and the Maryland Eastern Shore. I am recommending as your Club President and on behalf of our District Governor Bill Ferguson to cancel all-district club meetings and events until Sunday, March 29, 2020. I would recommend being cautious and be mindful of all situations or circumstances.

Our District Governor and I will continue to monitor the situation and will issue another directive the week of March 27th.

Promote safe preventive actions:

  • Frequently wash hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap not available use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol
  • Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue or use inside of your elbow
  • Clean frequently touched objects and surfaces
  • Stay home when sick

Yours In Rotary Service,

Lisa Detwiler

For 2019 Flags will be flown at Constitution Yards Wilmington Riverfront from May 18 to June 1.
