Rotary Club Updates March 28, 2019
  • First of all, thanks to Mike Dodson for running the meeting last week.  On Wednesday I received a call that I needed to be in Topeka for a meeting the next day that ended up running from 10:00 to 2:00 pm.  As one would expect, not much got done in a meeting that runs that long!  That said, I did get a “free lunch”.
  • Our program this week is Alison Felix, who will give us a Federal Reserve update.
  • The KSU Rotaract Club and  USD 383 Interact Club held a joint social last Sunday at the Union Bowling Alley.  There was an excellent turnout and it appeared to me everyone was having a great time.  A big THANKS to all our club member who came out and supported these two clubs.
  • Two important dates I hope you have on your calendar:
    • April 25: Rotary on Tap at Colbert Hills – this is a joint social with the Konza club.
    • April 26-27: District 5710 Conference and Assembly in Topeka
  • I sent each of you an email from Catherine Brown of the KSU Rotaract Club concerning their fundraiser called Box City.  This is an excellent event and a worth cause. 
  • Please don’t forget that we are still short of our goal for 100% participation in contributing to the Rotary Foundation this year!!!!  Please consider contributing if you have not done so this year.
