The Rotary Club of Plainview hosted the Rotary Club of Bethlehem, Palestine, on a Zoom meeting, June 16.  Mazin Qumsiyeh, a professor at Bethlehem University, was the main speaker.  The club learned about issues ongoing in Palestine as well as the service work of the Bethlehem club.  Rotary connects the world through service above self.  Plainview and Bethlehem members ended the meeting with a desire to work together on future projects and have additional joint meetings.

There are People of Action right here in Plainview who are making our city, our region, and our world a better place.  The Rotary Club of Plainview is the only service club in Plainview that has consistently met during the COVID pandemic using Zoom technology.  Rotarians are People of Action.  We have connected with organizations around the world during the past two months and have supported COVID-related economic relief efforts in Plainview with donations of $5,000.
 
We invite you to join community leaders who seek service above self.  Together, we protect COVID medical professionals with 3D printed PPE; we cheer residents of area nursing homes with homemade Valentine's Day cards; we encourage students to active secondary school attendance through Perfect Attendance awards; and we support those whose lives have been disrupted by COVID-prevention through funding non-profit organizations.  These pictures are just a part of the life-changing work we do weekly.  You see, Rotary connects the world through service above self.  Be our guest on Zoom.  Find out how you can be a person of action in our community. 
 
The Rotary Club of Plainview is co-hosting a blood drive with Wayland Baptist University in the Brown Conference Center on Thursday, June 25, from 10:00am-2:30pm.  All appropriate social distancing and health protocols will be in place to maximize your safety while serving the community through your donation.
 
Please sign up today on the Vitalant website: https://www.bloodhero.com/index.cfm?group=op&expand=936352&zc=79072 
 
As a bonus for those who participate, your blood will be tested for COVID-19 antibodies.  The need for blood is important right now with so many people not getting out the past two months.
 
Rotarian and Wayland Baptist University professor Scott Franklin has been using WBU 3D printer to help save lives during the COVID-19 pandemic. He has been printing Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for local healthcare professionals serving in our community.  The Rotary Club of Plainview recognizes his efforts to provide these much needed face masks and other pieces with the 3D printing.  He was able to present and get funding for another 3D printer for Rotaract. 
We are proud to say Scott is our Rotarian of the Quarter. 
Scott has been a member of the Rotary Club since 2013 and has served on several committees and is the President Nominee for this coming July. 
        Thank you for all you do Scott.
