Important Message from President O'Neill

Your health and safety is important to us. As we continue to learn more about the threat of the Coronavirus, our board has voted to suspend all meetings and events until April 24th. 
I've asked Dr. Rob McGregor to provide his insights and he shared the following; "For most of you, if you get this illness, you should recover fine with supportive care like fever meds and fluids.  Don’t panic and use good judgment. Call your doctor should you have symptoms and stay away from hospitals unless directed to go by your provider. Stay safe and away from crowds."
My contact information is below and please feel free to contact me at any time.

Coin Boxes for Food Bank

Dear Fellow Rotarians,
A short email to update you on the “Coin Boxes” and to pleasantly remind you to keep saving your change – even while we are not meeting – this will help ease the “overflow” in your home Piggy Banks! We can still collect through May 31st, 2020!
Hope you will join me and put forth the good deeds of our Akron Rotary Club.
Lynda Farkas

A note from the Akron/Canton Food Bank:
“Thank you for collecting coins for the Harvest for Hunger Campaign! Collections are happening now through May 31st.   I am copying Joe May to this email; he works with Elizabeth Bartz (our Harvest for Hunger Co-Chair) at State & Federal Communications, Inc. and their team will be happy to come by and pick-up your coin boxes once you are finished collecting. There is nothing posted on our website as this is an initiative conducted by State & Federal Communications, Inc. Please let me know if you need any other information.
Thank you again for helping to feed people and fight hunger,”
