Our meeting is cancelled next week to encourage your attendance.
The District Conference is coming soon.  Just a little over a month away on July 8th and 9th at the Hoff Family Arts & Culture Center in Council Bluffs, Iowa. The Conference promises Friendship, Learning, Fun and a Service Project! To view details and register, click here.
Come and share ideas, get energized, build friendships, have a good time and check out the amazing Hoff Family Arts and Culture Center.
For our “Service Above Self” service project, we will be serving a hot breakfast, courtesy of Hot Meals USA, to the homeless of Council Bluffs.  On the registration form you can sign up to volunteer to assist with the project both at the homeless shelter and at the Hoff Family Arts & Culture Center.
Children under the age of 18 can attend at no cost and special activities for them are being planned.  When you register them, please indicate in the question section their ages so appropriate activities are available.
REMEMBER: Connected to the conference are activities on Thursday, July 7th at Full Fledged Brewery in Council Bluffs.  An afternoon leadership training session that begins at 1 pm and ends at 4 pm and social activities that begin at 5:15 pm.  There is no cost for either of these activities, but please register for one or both so we know how many to plan for. A good time will be had by all.
Thank you to everyone who helped with the Bloody Mary Fest. Last week Michelle and Dan presented a $15,248 check to the Ronald McDonald House.  
Thanks to our July meeting sponsor Candy Specht with State Farm Insurance. 
 If you would like to sponsor a month and be featured on our website, newsletter, and at weekly meetings, please contact Jennifer.
