Thanks to Members Who Joined Our Thursday ZOOM Happy Hour!

Who knew that there is actually a Rotary wheel on the moon and that Julia Child was a speaker at our club???  Those were just some of the fun facts we learned during a round of Rotary Trivia on Thursday evening.  Members also enjoyed two breakout sessions, where we shared the new hobbies everyone was developing during the pandemic, and seeing all the creative ZOOM backgrounds of their fellow members.  Congratulations to David Park who won a $25 Amazon gift card for his Brady Bunch ZOOM background in our special contest.    
Save the date for our next ZOOM Happy Hour on Thursday, August 20th at 5:30pm when we honor World Mosquito Day.

Oedipus the King
A Livestream Production by Play Your Part

Thebes is faced with a flesh-eating plague that is killing its people. The gods claim the only way to save the city is to uncover the man who murdered their former king and kill or exile him. Oedipus, famous for having saved Thebes by solving the riddle of the Sphinx, learns from a blind prophet that he himself is the very murderer he seeks, and that he is destined for a fate worse than death. Relentless and maniacal in his pursuit of the truth, Oedipus roots out those who know the origins of his birth. What is revealed leads to even more ghastly acts of free-will in the face of inescapable doom.
Don't miss this special production supported by a grant from the Seattle Rotary Service Foundation.
