This past week:


We heard from Horizons on their Cookie Day. Our club will be participating in the program in March.  




Club Notes:


Welcom Teressa Hackenmiller to the club with her red badge!!!


The celebration of 2018 and guest day has been rescheduled for March 13th.  Please invite a guest that day as we celebrate our successes and show people why we do what we do at Cedar Rapids West Rotary.   


The club has a few needs.   Currently we have no one slated to take the June or August programs. If you have a few ideas for great programs please come forward and lets make it happen. 


Also, now that we are recomitted to the AAMI for 2019 we need to address the catering, specifically the Prairie Soup and Deb's Deli days.    If you are interested in becoming the Food Committee chair or at least help find new lunch options please let us know




Fundraiser Update:


Please keep in mind to talk to potential sponsors this time of year. It's time to get the band back together and start planning for The Big Drop 2019.   Please consider jumping on board and making this even more successful than it was last year. 



Board Notes:


The Board would like to thank Val Hill for her service to the club. Val had to step down from the Board siting difficutly making the meetings.  At the same time we would like to welcome Kim Kudej and Matt Teply to the board.  We look forward to having you share your wisdom !!!


 The Board has decided to renew our lease with the AAMI for the 2019 calendar year.   We have a few potential new locations for 2020 . We are looking for a small committee to investigate these and other options over the course of the next 6 months. 


The next Board meeting will be Thursday march 7th. Location TBD




Monthly Networking:


Thursday March 7th. Location TBD


Next weeks program:


We would love to get a full house for this week.
