Rotary in March
Important update on the Crete Rotary March schedule: Rotary resources have been diligent in sending out updates on how the current COVID-19 situation can affect groups like ours and many clubs have suspended meetings in March in an effort to limit the potential exposure and spread.
Crete Rotary will cancel the remaining March meetings (17th and 25th) to error on the side of caution for our club and community. Members who have additional concerns, please contact Jenn. Please watch your email this week for additional updates about the schedule and the grocery grab.

The situation has the potential to affect the Grocery Grab event, but in talking with several members this weekend, we see no reason yet to change the plans. If members think the current situation could affect ticket sales or the event itself, please contact Jenn with your concerns.
The Crete News Community Page for Rotary was held one week and should print in the March 18 issue. A suggestion was made to add a line to the text of the following "the schedule of this event is subject to change." Additional members will be contacted for a status update on Monday.

Last week's meeting was a tour of the new Crete Public Library with Library Director Joy Stevenson. The library portion of the building is about 15,000 square feet, compared to the old library's 8,000. The community room space in the new building adds an additional 5,000 sf. Stevenson explained how certain design elements of the project were inspired by other newer libraries, as well as her visits to libraries across the country.
The library includes a cafe area, teen room and teen study room, two smaller meeting rooms, and a 10-person conference-style meeting room; all are quipped with digital screens and connectivity. The children's area includes a family restroom and nursing room, family seating, program room, outdoor patio and floor-level book bins. There is also a technology room, adult reading room with fireplace and an art gallery wall, currently featuring work from local artists curated by the Blue River Arts Council. The building also has a drive-up book drop and pickup window. The new park space on the block is set for landscaping and equipment this spring.
