Rotary Club 13 Buzz Saw This Week’s Meeting– Muehlebach Hotel, Noon, Trianon Room, Aug. 25, 2011 Rotary Picnic a Brilliant Success

More than 150 people attended our annual picnic at the Rotary Youth Camp. Chuck Eddy and the Entertainment Committee organized the event, and Chris Boland provided the brisket. The Prairie Township Fire Department gave the kids tours of an ambulance and let them spray the hose from a fire engine. We had tree-climbing harnesses, a trampoline swing, a moonwalk and swimming. To see more pictures from the picnic, visit the Downtown Kansas City Rotary Club 13 Facebook page. Don’t forget to ―like‖ us at the top of the page next to the title.

Rotary District Governor Visits Club 13 Dan Hall, governor, Rotary District 6040, visited our club last week. He was received with a standing ovation. He emphasized the need for clean water and microcredit in underdeveloped countries. He said that the St. Joseph Rotary Club has undertaken a project to bring clean water to parts of Thailand, and is interested in help from other Rotary Clubs. He described microcredit as a small loan of approximately $80-$100 that people in poor villages can use to invest in small business ventures and generate income. He described the fifth avenue of service, New Generations and encouraged us to participate in the formation of Interact Clubs and Rotoract Clubs, which are Rotary Clubs for high school students and young professionals aged 18-30, respectively. He called attention to the new Rotary District 6040 podcast, www.itsrotary.com, and described its format as a radio show with half the content about district news and the other half about Rotary International. At the end of his remarks, he was honored with another standing ovation. Rotary Club 13 Office - 1289 Wyandotte - Kansas City, MO 64105 - 816.842.2322 www.rotary13.org VOL. XCV / No. 34

President Marc Horner called the meeting to order and asked for members born in August to stand, while Charlie Huffman led the club in singing ―Happy Birthday.‖ We sang Carl Bolte’s ―Welcome to Rotary‖ with Charlie leading and Carl grinning like a cat on the piano. Kent Verden gave our invocation, and John Christensen welcomed 10 guests and one visiting Rotarian. Recovery Bay is looking good. Our Executive Director Janet Ellis is ready to return home after a stay at North Kansas City Rehab Center. Past President Ford Nelson recovered enough to attend the Rotary picnic last week, and Lindsay Ripley is home from her surgery in Los Angeles. John Platt had knee surgery at St. Luke’s South on Tuesday and has returned home. We send prayers for speedy recoveries to Janet, Lindsay, Ford and John.

President Marc announced the sad news that Ray Rowland, who was a member of Club 13 from 1976 to 2008, passed away on Aug. 11. Chuck Eddy and Chris Boland were recognized for organizing the fabulous family picnic last Sunday. The weather was perfect and more than 150 people turned out to enjoy the fun. David Schmidt and John Jesperson sponsored the Membership Development Committee block party at the Wall Street Tower. We had a visiting Rotarian from the Boston Club attending. The word spreads. Well done! Lots of announcements of upcoming events: Debra Shultz announced that Sept. 15 is Rotary Night at the Nelson; 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. is social hour, followed by a grand tour; RSVPs must be received at the Rotary 13 office by Sept. 12; Tickets are $5, and participants receive a $5 voucher for food and drink. DEAL!!! Firesides are planned for Oct. 12—14. Home hosts are being recruited. Sept. 9 is the Tyro Music Party at Sally Bibb’s home for Tyro members, the Tyro Committee and the Club Board of Directors. Sept. 9—11 is the Rotary Youth Camp Rummage Sale. Elliot Goldstein says Camp Enterprise needs discussion leaders and staff.

Rotary District 6040 Governor Dan Hall

President Marc introduced 2011-2012 District Gov. Dan Hall from Lee’s Summit Sunrise Club who brought us up to speed on Rotary projects worldwide.

Lawrence Graduates from Tyro Program Michael Lawrence, executive director, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Kansas City, has reached 100 tyro points through participation in various Rotary functions. He may now remove the red ribbon from his badge.
