Rotary Lunch This Week


Speaker is to be determined; it looks like it won't be Shay Mikalson after all.



The meeting will be via web conference. To attend, either visit https://join.me/michaelcottam from your computer, or you may call in on (213) 226-1066 and enter conference ID 668-918-795.


We will record the presentation for others who aren’t able to attend at noon.

Gift Cards to Promote Duck Race Ticket Sales



The Duck Race committee is going to be promoting online sales starting in the next couple of weeks. To incent people in the community to buy online (and early), we'll be giving away $100 gift cards to Bend restaurants at least weekly, in a drawing from those who've bought tickets that week. We'll be promoting this heavily on Facebook.



Rather than ask restaurants--who are probably some of the hardest-hit businesses by the COVID-19 situation--to donate gift cards, a number of committee members have already stepped up and paid for some of the gift cards out of their own pockets. We've got enough donated to run a drawing weekly--if we have more donors, we should be able to move to twice a week.



This is an opportunity for us to backfill all those person-to-person sales we normally make for the Duck Race tickets. If you have a favorite restaurant you'd like to support, we would welcome your donation!



Here's the signup sheet online--put your name next to one of these, or feel free to add your favorite restaurant.



Click here to signup.



PLEASE NOTE: The Duck Race committee is still looking for a few more major donors for prizes for the main event. Contact Kyle Frick if you'd like to contribute.
