March 21 - Youth Exchange Outbound Orientation and the Literacy Committee meeting 
April 4 - District Training Assembly
We are evaluating future events including the Grant Management Training on April 18, the April 24-25 District Conference and the May Rotary Youth Leadership Award (RYLA)
It was decided to  continue to hold the Foundation training events as they are regional and involve very small groups.  You will receive continuing updates.
Let’s all keep in mind the Four Way Test and ask ourselves if our actions, including participation in Rotary events, will be “beneficial to all concerned”.  Is it worth the risk of spreading this virulent virus and causing our friends and fellow Rotarians to become ill?
At this time it is unknown how long this crisis will persist.  Some estimates suggest it could continue for 3 to 4 months.  Around the world, Rotary Clubs and Districts are making difficult decisions about their planned activities including meetings.  In D6420, some senior centers and hospitals have asked clubs not to meet in their space until further notice. We have inbound and outbound exchange students in countries with closed borders or trying to return to countries with closed borders.
We are encouraging our clubs to develop a plan.  Consider meeting online using free services like Zoom or a similar platform.  Please let me know your plan and if you need help implementing it.
Our communities are looking to us for leadership.  Let’s act responsibly and proactively.
30 Years as a Rotarian Celebrated
Keith Zoeller's 30 years of Rock Falls Rotary Membership Celebrated
 District Governor Bobbi Burke presents to Keith Zoeller a certificate which honors his 30 years of membership in the Rock Falls Rotary Club. 
During his years he has consistently:
- chaired Farmers' Night and made many changes in the  event, 
- chaired the annual Corn Boil, 
- chaired the Scholarship Committee, and 
- served on the Board of Directors.
He served twice as President and on a district committee for several years.  
His dedication to service is evident through the many projects of Rock Falls Rotary that he supports and participates in as listed above,  as well  as luminaria pick-up at Hometown Holidays,  erecting Rotary signage upon entry into Rock Falls, Polio walk in November for which he transported the iron Lung in a 4.5 hour trip to and from the far North side of Chicago, and opening hi home to the members when a service project was completed at his home.
Little Free Pantry Provides Emerg. Help
For those times when a local family or senior citizen needs help “in a pinch,” Putnam County’s Little Free Pantry will be there, 24-7.  The first PC Little Free Pantry is located in the outer entryway of the Putnam County Community Center in Standard;. Another will be located soon, outside the Fire Department / PC EMS building in McNabb.
The project was launched and funded by Putnam County Rotary, with assistance of a Rotary District Community matching grant, to offer emergency assistance to all PC residents – including those who also qualify for monthly PC Food Pantry pickups.
Rotarians on hand for the launch of the first PC Little Free Pantry at the PC Community Center in Standard are, L-R: Adriane Shore, Tina Dolder, Scott Shore, Debbie Buffington, Lisa Bellan, Beth Acuncius, and Brenda Bickerman.
