We have moved back inside to the beautiful, recently remodeled Learning Center at the Eugene Mission for our meetings.

This week, Mike Harwood will be joining us. Mike is the University Architect and Associate Vice President of Campus Planning and Facilities Management (CPFM) at the University of Oregon (UO). He provides leadership to the planning, architectural design, construction, real estate development, maintenance, utility production, and campus operations at the university. Mike came to UO in the summer of 2016 after 22 years at North Carolina State University, where he served as the Associate Vice Chancellor for Centennial Campus Development.

We anticipate that all members who attend are fully vaccinated and soon to be or already “boosted.” The CDC recommends masking in indoor spaces with a large group, so please, wear your favorite, most comfortable mask, and only remove it for eating and drinking.

Fall Fundraising

The last event was a successful kickoff to our Fall Fundraising Campaign. Adding what was purchased or donated prior to the event with what we collected that night, and then subtracting our bill for Falling Sky, we currently have netted about $7,000 toward our Fall Campaign goal of $15,000. This is more than I was expecting, thanks to all of you who made it possible. While the Trivia Night was the kickoff event for the fall campaign, we’re depending on direct donations as well to help fund our work to combat both food insecurity and homelessness. Here is the campaign flyer -and a link to our web pages that explain more about the need and our work, as well as including the link to donate.

If you prefer to write a check, It can be sent to the Southtowne Rotary Foundation Treasurer, Ted Stevens.
