Rotarian Poetry - Covid-19 Thoughts

Small World

In our world, it is miniscule

It has packed a worldly punch

It also can be very cruel

Will last years, just a hunch

 

COVID does not discriminate

Colour, religion, language does not matter

Its only purpose is to self-create

Let’s learn from this world in tatters

 

Elderly need more attention

Medical professionals are heroes, all day

Many others deserve a mention

Hope our governments do more than just, say “

 

Cheers for those on the front line

To politicians that lead with good governance

It helped us all, while in this bind

Lessons learned should not just be utterance

 

Soap, water, 20 seconds, make a lather

Stay home, it is a safety matter

Always 2 metres if we must gather

Wear a mask, because it matters

 

Since COVID has created more of a mess

Anything at all, is the request

To remember those, with even less

Be kind and friendly, it makes us our best

Since we can no longer roam

 

Rick Marsh 2020

 

 

New Normal

The days merge to one another

New routines come together

Is it already May or other?

Cannot tell by the weather

 

At home, more cooking and baking

Fixing things that have been breaking

No more lunches with friends

Many pictures with a zoom lens

 

Since we can no longer roam

Haircut for him at home

For her, a change in colour dye

Fancy or funny you decide

 

Visits from the driveway

Zoom meetings in our midst

Bridge those friendships for another day

Spend some time and reminisce

 

Soap, water, 20 seconds, make a lather

Stay home, it is a safety matter

Always 2 metres if we must gather

Wear a mask, because it matters

 

Store entering is now not a must

Things delivered are a big plus

Online ordering is a slam dunk

And groceries dropped in the trunk

 

Travel plans on hold

Maybe for a year we are told

Afternoon trips to see the countryside

Let’s see life on the sunny side

Rotary Zoom Meeting include Exchange Students

Regular weekly meetings as well as Board meetings have been occurring on ZOOM during COVID-19. It allows the good work of Rotary to continue in the community as well as club fellowship among members. We have passed our meeting links to former inbound youth exchange students who have been joining our meetings and updating our members on their lives since their exchange.

Rotary Members living SERVICE ABOVE SELF

The Rotary Club of Sarnia is so proud of our members. Carolyn Leaver Luciani (Manleys) and Alex Botma (Botma Homes) each made a donation of an entire skid of food to The INN of the Good Shepherd. A skid of carrots and a skid of oatmeal will go a long way feeding families in need. They are living the Rotary motto of "SERVICE ABOVE SELF".

District Governor connects during Foundation month

November is Rotary Foundation Month which is probably the most important month to reflect on why we are in Rotary. 
 
The Rotary Foundation is the heart of Rotary; it’s where we continually see how we are making a difference in the world. Take the time to reflect on what’s happening within your local community through funding from District Grants or in overseas projects in third world countries funded by Clubs and the District through Global Grants. The outcome is we are assisting those less fortunate than us with a better life. The massive amount of effort which Rotary has put into the Polio Eradication Program is without a doubt inspiring at a world-wide level, but this doesn’t just happen. It happens because Rotarians in every club are making an effort to raise awareness and funds to ensure our Foundation is adequately funded so we may ensure the world is a better place and that we get on and rid the world of this debilitating disease.
