Fellow Rotarians,
Last week we had the pleasure of recognizing our newest Paul Harris Fellow and welcoming our newest Rotarian.  Brad Roberts was introduced as our latest Paul Harris Fellow by his brother Tom Roberts.  It's interesting what one can learn about someone during an introduction!  Congratulations, Brad.  We are pleased to have Christopher Miller as our newest Rotarian.  Christopher is President of Rocking M Media LLC.  Our club is fortunate to have Christopher as a member and we look forward to serving along side him.
You should have received your annual dues renewal notice.  Remember you can now pay online, by credit/debit card at our meetings or by check.  If you wish to pay online, just click the following link: https://mkt.com/Manhattan-Rotary   If possible, please have your dues paid no later than June 1st so the board can have an accurate count for District 5710 and Rotary International by mid June.
Our annual Awards Program will be held a week from this Thursday, May 14th.  This promises to be a rewarding time in which we recognize many of our members for their ongoing efforts in growing our club and supporting the multitude of projects.  We will also recognize our Rotarian of the Year. 
This week our program features Steven Coen, President and CEO of the Kansas Health Foundation.  I hope to see you this Thursday for lunch!
