Hello Fellow Rotarians and Friends!

What a wonderful District 6000 conference this past weekend in West Des Moines.  Club 27’s own Suku Radia was the featured speaker during the Friday luncheon.

This week’s special guests are Peter and Cyndi Dorah, past district governors of District 6960 in Florida.  They were personal ambassadors appointed by Rotary International President, Barry Rassin, to attend our District conference.  I think you’ll enjoy learning more about them and their passion for Rotary.

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

Hello Fellow Rotarians and Friends!

Last week’s Educator Awards program was a wonderful way of celebrating one of Rotary’s Six Areas of focus on basic education and literacy.  We recognized five professional educators from the Des Moines Public Schools.   They are:

rcdm educators

Alison Hoeman – Phillips Elementary School (English K-5)

Mike Marcketti – Central Academy- Mathematics

Maria Howard – Brody Middle School- Language Acquisition (Spanish)

Patrick Lewis – Roosevelt HS – Behavior Disorder Teacher & mentor

Erin Budreau – Findley Elementary – 5th Grade

One of the honorees, Maria Howard, was kind enough to share her comments for Rotary Roundabout.  I think you’ll be impressed with her message.

Remember, no meeting this week so that we can attend the District 6000 Conference Luncheon on Friday, May 3 at the Shearton Hotel in West Des Moines. Our our Suku Radia will be the featured speaker.

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

We kick off one of the best times of the year this Thursday when we present our scholarships to a selected senior from each of Des Moines high schools.  This is one of my most favorite meetings of the.  I hope it’s one of yours, too.

Hello Fellow Rotarians and Friends!

Thanks to all of you for your support of our Club and Rotary.  While Shari and I were in Florida, we took a side trip to St. Augustine.  While we were touring that historic city, I came across two plaques place the the Rotary Club of St. Augustine commemorating the city’s 450th anniversary in 2015.  I have to admit, that was pretty cool to be in a city that old here in the States!

This week I take a moment to share the history of the Rotary Bell that begins and ends each meeting.  I was recently asked by a new member why a bell is used.  Since I didn’t know, I looked it up and thought I’d share it with my listeners.

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