Dear Fellow Rotarians,
Last week’s program was delightful with Professor Dawn Deeter and two of her students telling us about the National Strategic Selling Institute. The program is growing faster than anticipated and is filling a need for many students at K-State who discover that they really love to work in sales.
This week will be especially interesting for Manhattan as John Armbrust gives us the latest update on the Department of Defense’s plans for troop reductions and base realignments. You won’t want to miss this to find how Ft. Riley might be affected.
From my new perspective as the club President, I am seeing ever more clearly how many of our club members are hard at work on many projects and plans.  Rotarians historically have not sought recognition for their charitable work, and our Rotary International leaders are encouraging us to be more visible. If you know of any Rotarians who are doing something special without due recognition, please let me know and we will try to shine a little light on those good people.
Here are the programs for the next three weeks so you can arrange your schedule to attend:
July 16 – Jodi Oleen with the Kansas Pork Association (maybe some samples???)
July 23 – Michelle Martin, telling us how the Catholic Charities organization has a very important role in our community.
July 30 – Wait for it…………..Coach………Bill…..Snyder!  He will answer all your questions about the 2015-16 football team. Right?
I look forward to seeing you this Thursday.

Thank you for all you do for Rotary,

Betty Stevens
