Last Week at Rotary
Last week David Thompson gave the invocation. Carl Greiner and Pat Knowles served as Greeters.  Butch Ethington was Cashier and Starla Waite was Sgt. at Arms.  Nick Rosenberry took care of a/v for us.  We had several announcements.  Michelle Schrage introduced Beth Ostdiek Smith who told us of how they have built a non-profit business to rescue food waste and feed hungry people in Omaha. 
Rotary Foundation Recognition 
Several generous members were recognized for their support of the Intl. Rotary Foundation by Committee Chair JR Kammandel. 
Thank you to all of you! 
Bev Karrer was recognized as a Paul Harris Fellow for her contributions of $1000.
Don Otis was recognized as a Paul Harris Fellow +6 for contributions over $7000.

Congratulations to 100%ers-Martie Cordaro-2,  Matt McKeever-15, Dick Sturgeon-29, Steve Redler-33 who were recognized by Dan Lassek last week. 
Blue Badge 
Congratulations to Kevin Wycoff who received his permanent badge from his sponsor, Butch Ethington, last week. 
November is Rotary Foundation Month 
Our goal is for 100% of our members to make a donation to the International Rotary Foundation this year. The easiest way is to go to the Rotary website at and create an account to give online.  A $100 donation makes you a 19-20 Sustaining Member. Cumulative donations of $1000 make you a Paul Harris Fellow.
The Rotary Foundation money we give comes back to us in the form of District and Global grants allowing to us to support local projects like the meal packaging, care packages for the homeless, and a new laundry room for Skinner Magnet School. 
You can also bring a check made out to the Rotary Foundation to the meeting on Friday and Jennifer will send it in for you.
