A small group of masked and mostly vaccinated Rotarians convened at the International headquarters for Respectacle this Thursday morning in Hudson. We were met by Jake Ballard who got us settled, gave us some background and soon had us all  working on our smart phones with  surprising ease.  Present were Tim Trooien who worked diligently photographing glasses so they could be viewed online by potential recipients. Jack and Jeanne Matlock along with Lenny Snellman and myself (Wendy Heck) worked on describing donated glasses. This information was entered into the phone and then we used our phones to scan a barcode for each pair. The system appeared to be organized and efficient. Once we finished Jake gave us a tour. They have thousands of glasses already cataloged, and thousands more  in need of processing. We have another volunteer time scheduled for our group on Saturday March 6th. Due to Covid-19 we are limited to 8 volunteers, and everyone needs to stay masked and socially distanced.
