Members and guests were welcomed with the LAST opportunity to buy breakfast and raffle tickets to support the breakfast. Dana Nichols shared the latest photos from the Ghana water project showing water flowing at five boreholes including project engineer Emmanuel wearing his Hawkeye shirt.
KC Flynn shared the photo of Thursday morning’s “mug shot” photo on KCRG-TV9, reminded everyone that there were still a few volunteer slots to be filled, and said that volunteers should park somewhere nearby and leave the building parking lots for breakfast guests.
And our speaker, former Hawkeye quarterback Chuck Long, shared stories from his player years at the University of Iowa and in the NFL, from his coaching years, and about why he’s now glad to be living in Cedar Rapids.
Last evening at Bata's was a nice time of relaxed conversation and those tasty sweet potato fries! Mark your calendar for this first Thursday of the month time to connect with your fellow Rotarians beverage in hand.
The “wheel of Rotary” rolls forward this weekend as Rotarians, including Mike Wiethorn and Christine Smart, preparing to be presidents of their clubs are gathered in Rochester, Minnesota for the annual President-Elect Training Seminar. (Mike will be our club president next year, and Christine will be club president in 2015-16.)
It’s almost time for pancakes!
See you tomorrow for those pancakes and then we’ll see you Wednesday!
