Starting in March 2020, our club started having our meetings on Zoom due to the Covid-19 Shelter-in-Place recommendations to avoid group meetings.  
The normal practice in normal times is for Lincoln Rotary to have some awesome lunch meetings, Thursday at noon at the Woman's Club (Fifth and E Street).   Our speakers can be about what is going on with our charitable projects and activities, or about what is going on in our community.  Follow us on our facebook page  LincolnCaRotary or our website to find out what's going on.  But please join us if our meeting is about something of your interest.   The following is about some of our community interest speakers. 
Monthly, our club invites the Students of the Month from Lincoln High School to a meeting, honoring them with a certificate and giving them the experience of telling us about there plans.  The picture below shows those from our February 6th meeting.  At the meeting, we also had a an inspiring presentation about the Touch of Understanding Foundation by Meghan Adamski and Roxanne Snyder.

On January 16th, we enjoyed the comic stylings of Lincoln Hills resident John Lees, a business consultant and author of more than 13 books. John is a native of the UK but lived most of his life in Australia with his wife and children.  John told lots of jokes that were largely well received. His advice: speak the language of the people you serve; make customers part of your team; and offer two options, what your client wants and what your client needs.
At our December 5th meeting, Councilman Dan Karleskint and County Transportation Executive Director Mike Luken discussed current transportation issues effecting Lincoln, stressing how important this will be to all of us and future generations. More Pictures. The top three priority projects were:
