SmartScripts and the Turkey Dinner

We were fortunate to hear a presentation by Todd Thompson about his rapidly growing SmartScripts business. This is a new concept pharmacy and insurance company located in Washington, Iowa with national markets. It is a potential market disruptor.
Todd Thompson of SmartScripts
Todd Thompson also co-founded Reliant Long Term Care pharmacy several years prior to starting SmartScripts in the same westside Washington location. Todd's stepson, Roby Miller, is also a successful entrepreneur. Roby,  created a pharmacy related technology business call TelePharm which was acquired in August by a Cardinal Healthcare in Ohio for a significant price. The back end pharmacist for TelePharm's video interaction is in Washington at SmartScripts.

Attorney Katie Mitchell was the guest of Dr. Ann Harris, DDS

Past DG Don Patterson brought his brother Tom Patterson

Terry Engelken brought Bob Lamb, who is a former Rotarian


It has been a few weeks since our September 12 annual Turkey Dinner, but some pics are still in order. It was a successful fundraiser for the club.

Nancy Rash has done a great job organizing this annual event, and keeps everyone focused on service.

That's Larry Fishback behind that pan lid.

Service with a smile.
