As pointed out by Club President Linda,  Positivity Day lands on a Tuesday and we as a club should start thinking about how we can promote this day.
 
Also "Random Act of Kindness brought to you by Rotary" cards were handed out to the members at this meeting.  All members are encouraged to perform acts of kindness and if helpful use the cards to explain the nature of the deed.
