Members of the Norman Cross Timbers Rotary Club participated in the Day of Service organized by the City of Norman, to commemorate Martin Luther King, Jr. Day on January 17, 2022.  Rotarians cleaned up June Benson Park by picking up trash, limbs, and raking leaves.  Members were joined by District Governor Elect (and Past President of Cross Timbers) Conni Eckstein. 
Given the increases in things that are concerning (infections, hospitalizations, etc), and based on a recommendation from George Mauldin (Cleveland County Emergency Services Director...who presented a program about Covid to our club a few weeks back), we are cancelling our meeting on January 18.  George was to be our program guest, but we will reschedule him for a future meeting.
Toward the end of the month, we will reassess the situation and decide about the February 1st meeting.
With the Day of Service activity on Monday being outdoors, there is less concern, so we will still be doing our part on that day.  Let me know if you can help us then!
In the meantime, stay safe!
The Norman Cross Timbers Rotary Club is sponsoring an ART OF PEACE contest for middle and high school students in the Norman area. The contest will be held on Friday evening, February 11, 2022 at The Well in Norman.
Peace and Conflict Resolution is one of the Areas of Focus for Rotary, the world’s largest service organization, with over 1.2 million members in over 200 countries. The Norman Cross Timbers Rotary Club recently was designated as a Peacebuilder Club by the Rotary Action Group for Peace.
Students are invited to submit artwork that depicts what the student visualizes as peace in the school, neighborhood, community, state, country, or world.

This year, the Norman PD organized an event at the Sooner Mall Parking Lot (NE corner) for National Night Out.
Our club had a space, and  a canopy set up, with a table, a club banner, some printed materials, candy to give out, and stories to tell about how our club does good in the world!
Our program last night was brought to us by our very own Marilyn Kaplan.
Marilyn gave us a brief history of Polio and how it has infected millions of people.
She brought us to today when there has been reported a total number of 2 new cases THIS YEAR! 
One in Pakistan and one in Afghanistan. 
The slide show was very good showing us how the number of cases have decreased since Rotary and The Bill Gates Foundation got involved.
