Happy Dollars
This week Club members were happy for: Karen Dennis for being able to spend the holidays in California with her grandsons, and the other grandchildren came up from St. Louis to spend some time with them!  Mary Beth Bretzlauf was happy for the time she had over the holidays with family and with her son and his girlfriend (serious? maybe); Doris Xie was happy Yale extended their winter break so she has more time with her daughter Kimie.
You don't have to wait until meeting day to share your happiness! Click on the yellow box below, donate your happy dollars and then email Mary Beth at hphwrotary@gmail.com and tell her what you're happy about!
The Day's Program
With our scheduled speaker, Lake County Treasurer Holly Kim home with COVID, and The Summer Inn closed due to this new variant spreading, we met on Zoom. We discussed service opportunities and we will connect with Laura Frey from the HP Senior Center to discuss delivering meals to shut-ins. 
We will meet via Zoom again next week. We hope The Summer Inn opens again in time for the 19th evening event. Stay tuned to the bulletin and check you emails for updates.
