Bob Timmons reported that plans and prepara-tion for the 2021 Taste of White Bear Lake are proceeding well. Public health trends indicate that the COVID-19 protocols will allow a normal social event.Pat McFarlane explained that ticket sales are going well but on-line sales may need to be shut down as we are approaching the maximum, however that assumes Rotarians holding tickets will sell the or buy them. If you feel you can not sell your tickets please get them back the Pat or Ken Baltzer so we can try to sell them on-line. If everyone sells or buys their four tickets we will be in great shape!
