Fellow Rotarians,
 
Last week's meeting was memorable and uplifting.  For me, it served as a reminder that our future is bright and in good hands.  In addition to recognizing MHS Students of The Month, Madeline Wilson and Pierson McAtee, we celebrated K State Rotoract Club's 25th anniversary.  Co-Presidents Rachel Loder and Madeline McMillen, along with several other Rotaractors, presented an overview of their club activities and the service projects already completed and those projects being planned.  The dedication and commitment of these young Rotarians was inspiring.  Darrell Brensing has been our club's representative and sponsor to Rotaract since the very beginning, 25 years ago.  I don't think our club could ask for a better Rotarian to represent us than Darrell. 
 
Our club's annual golf tournament will be held in conjunction with District 5710 Conference on May 8th at Colbert Hills.  Please mark your calendars and plan to play as well as recruit others to form a team.  More details will follow from our club's Golf Committee in coming weeks. 
 
This week we received thank you notes from the Girls Scouts, who sold cookies at our meeting 2 weeks ago, as well as the K- State Rotaract Club for our continued support.  Both of those notes will be posted on our website if you desire to read them.
 
This week, our program will be presented by Myriah Smith.  Myriah was our Global Grant Recipient last year and will share her experiences while in Panama.  I hope you will join me for lunch this Thursday!
