Last Week at Rotary
Last week Don Otis gave the invocation. Bob Fell and Rebecca Miller served as Greeters.  Russ Iwan was Cashier and Elizabeth Hallgren was Sgt. at Arms.  Nick Rosenberry took care of a/v for us.  We had several announcements including the presentation of the 2018-2019 Presidential Citation to the club by Past District Governor Julie O'Hara.  Kim Kuhle introduced Mike Bunach who talked to us about how to protect the environment with proper e-recycling.

Family of Rotary 
A special thank you to Kari Ketcham for hosting our Family of Rotary event at the Ronald McDonald House last night.   
Mark your calendars for our next social event- the Holiday Luncheon on December 20th at Anthony's Restaurant. Invite a guest! 
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. 
E-Cycling opportunity 
Last week we heard about the importance of properly recycling e-waste.   Rotarian Dick Lerner will be hosting a recycling drop-off point in his parking lot at Bel Air Fashions at Miracle Hills Square (717 N 114th St.) this Saturday, November 9th from 12-4.   
Service Projects
We are looking for volunteers for the Skinner Magnet School Career Fair.
The event will take place on November 21st (Thursday) from 1:00 to 3:30 at the Skinner Magnet School (4304 N. 33rd Street).  If you have any questions, or would like to volunteer, please contact Nick Rosenberry. 
If you haven’t attended this event in the past, below is some general information:
Format:  You will be set up at a table where small groups (6-7) of 4th/5th graders will rotate every 5 to 10 minutes.  There should be about 125 kids in total.
Attire: Wear the attire that you normally wear to work.  This way students can get a feel for what you do and how you need to dress for your job.
Purpose: We ask you to show them the "tools of your trade" so they could relate to how this helps them earn a living, helps them to be of service to other people, research that helps humanity at large, etc.  Our goal is to inspire them to do well in school, to understand why making an extra effort in their education is good for their future, and perhaps to believe that “I can do it, too”.  Whatever you can do to help achieve that goal for these kids is very much appreciated!
We will also be participating in Salvation Army Bell Ringing on Saturday, November 30th from 10am to 4pm at HyVee at 3410 N. 156th St.  Please mark your calendar. We will have sign ups at the meeting Friday. 
Club Vision Statement
