Grapevine – April 14, 2020

We had a good meeting last week using Ring Central. Approximately 35 members were able to join us, some with on video and computer audio and others called in via phone. We plan to hold another meeting this Thursday with the possibility of a program. Look for an email from President Steve with directions for joining the meeting.

In place of last week’s program, you are encouraged to watch the video of Peter Kyle’s keynote speech from the District 7360 Foundation Dinner on October 26, 2019. Follow one of these links.

  • From Judge Bridget Cohee: The Juvenile Drug Court is running low on $5 and $10 gift cards for incentives to the participants when they have a good week. A good week means clean screens, completing school assignments, individual and family therapy, court and probation check-in. Fast food gift cards of $5 and $10 are so beneficial to the kids. We are still doing our weekly hearings during the school outage. We are doing them by conference call. You can drop off the gift cards in an envelope to Leslie Crabill at BCT in Martinsburg. Thank you so much!

Community Announcement:

  • Steve Truax announced that CCAP has plenty of food to give away. It is well stocked for those who need it. They have enacted social distancing procedures.
