Hello Fellow Rotarians and Friends!

Welcome to this first 2019 edition of Rotary Roundabout!T1819_EN

Last week we interviewed Rotarian Doug Lewis to kick off the 2019 half of the Rotary year.  This week we featured Hope Stone who is one of the recipients of the 2017 scholarships that we award to a graduating senior from each of Des Moines public high schools.  

Hope is a junior at Drake University studying Health Sciences and Nursing.

Please take a listen to this impressive young woman who’s making the most of her Rotary award.  We also remind our club members of the upcoming Fellowship meetings on January 10th and our End Polio Now fundraiser on February 2nd.

Thanks, too, for all of the wonderful words of encouragement and support for Rotary Roundabout.  I very much appreciate them!

Hello Fellow Rotarians and Friends!

Welcome to this special new year’s edition of Rotary Roundabout!Screen Shot 12-31-18 at 10.54 AM

For sometime now, I’ve been wanting to feature Rotarians from Club 27 that I think are exemplary Rotarians in their professional and personal lives.  We have so many wonderful members that I want to highlight, but I’ve only 26 more episodes so I’ll have to pick and choose, but please know that I truly appreciate your membership and participation in our Club.

To kick off our Club 27 interviews, I’ve asked my friend and fellow Rotarian, Doug Lewis to share his experience and passion for Rotary.    So take a listen.  We also remind our club members of our upcoming Fellowship meetings on January 10th and our End Polio Now fundraiser on February 2nd.

Best wishes for a blessed, safe and happy new year and, as always, I’ll look forward to seeing you around Rotary!

Hello Fellow Rotarians and Friends!

Here’s this week’s podcast for Week 21 of the Rotary Year.rotaryturkey

There’s no meeting this week for Club 27, so I’ve highlighted the success of our Thanksgiving Gift Cards effort and have also taken the liberty of sharing an article about the recent Rotary Day at the African headquarters of the United Nations.

Thanks for listening and best wishes for a happy, safe and wonderful Thanksgiving holiday!
