Blood Drive and Rotary History

We'll be meeting at the YMCA again on Thursday for our first Club Forum of 2015. Susan will lead a great discussion, so be sure to attend.


Two weeks ago, it was a good blood-drive planning meeting led by Paul Horak. Our goal is 93 pints. Or is it gallons? 

The Rotary sponsored blood drive will be Thursday, February 12 at the United Presbyterian Church from 1:30pm to 6:30pm. The Mississippi Valley Regional Blood Center will conduct the blood drive.

Thanks to Rotarians for signing up to volunteer on February 12th, and for signing up to donate blood!


Although he wasn't at Paul Harris' first lunch gathering in 1905 that became Rotary, Bob Kennedy knows a lot of Rotary history. 

Thanks, Bob, for sharing and passing that history on for club members last week!
