Rotary Club 13 Buzz Saw This Week’s Meeting– Muehlebach Hotel, Noon, Trianon Room, Sept. 22, 2011 Last Thursday, Sept. 22, 2011 Pete Burgess

President Marc Horner opened the Sept. 15 meeting in the Muehlebach's Royal Hall and asked if anyone knew what month is was. A few volunteered an answer, but the tone was set. ―Keystroke‖ Carl Bolte accompanied Bob Lager who sang America the Beautiful. President Marc led the pledge and invited Kent Coxe up to offer the invocation. Ray Van Eman added a gracious welcome to Paul Schleicher who came as Steve Schleicher's guest. Bob Eltonhead was excused from the speaker introduction after he broke into KU Med Center for open heart surgery last Thursday, and will be home Friday to rest up. Ken Beardsley enters St. Luke’s on the Plaza for knee surgery and will recover at home. Our thoughts and prayers include Bob and Ken and all on the mend at home. We heard Mike Sanders speak on behalf of the International Service Committee to promote clean drinking water for Mexican schools. President Marc returned with announcements including next week’s work parties scheduled for Sept. 24 at Cristo Rey High School, and for Rotary Youth Camp. We heard that the following week marks the Dedication of the Korean War Memorial at Washington Square at 3 p.m. on Wed. Sept. 28. On Oct. 13 we meet in Municipal Auditorium to celebration its 75th Anniversary. Fireside meetings are set for Oct. 13 -15… and (not even least) the Kearney Club’s Oct. 21 – 22 Haunted Trail Ride. Who knows what evil lurks on Kearney trails? All of this led up to the announcement of the last two Strategic Imperatives: Number 5, The Rotary Youth Camp; and Number 6 the ―Bridge from Rotary 1.0 to Rotary 2.0‖.

Dr. Nick Franano at Rotary Club 13

Steve Burger stepped to the podium to introduce Dr. Nick Franano, CEO of Novita Therapuetics. Dr. Franano gave a remarkably eye-opening presentation entitled, ―Life Science as the Fourth Leg of Regional Economy.‖ For those who missed it, and for those want to hear this presentation again, it will be podcast on Rotary Club 13’s web site. Short version: life science is the future of business in this region, the bright spot in a downsizing economy. This was one very captivating presentation.

Rotary Club 13 Buzz Saw This Week’s Meeting– Muehlebach Hotel, Noon, Trianon Room, Sept. 22, 2011 Camp Enterprise Fosters Perseverance in Young Businesspeople This year’s Camp Enterprise, held at the Rotary Youth Camp, was executed with grace by co-chairs Elliott Goldstein and Paul William with help from Rotary 13 volunteers and Camp Director Laurie Mozley.

Gail Worth addresses Rotary Camp Enterprise participants

For two days, high school students from all over the KC metro participated in activities to give them an understanding of economics and business in American society, as well as to teach them values which will help them to be savvy business people later in life. ―This is the camp that profit built,‖ said Rotary 13 President Marc Horner in reference to the camp and all of its amenities as he spoke before the crowd of participants seated within. ―All charity comes from profits.‖ Activities included a poster contest, discussion questions over business ethics, a talent show, and a computer game to test the students’ business acumen and ability to work as a team. The game let the students act as executives at a company which makes a semi-futuristic technology called a ―Hologenerator.‖ They were tasked to make the company as profitable as possible with strategies based on real-world business issues. The game itself is run on highly-complex algorithms which insure that the consequences accurately reflect the students’ decisions as if they were a part of a real management team.

In addition, participants got to hear from established leaders in the local business community such as Gail Worth of Worth Harley-Davidson, Sean Stormes, columnist for the Kansas City Business Journal, Jan Marcason, Rotarian and Councilwoman for the 4th District of Kansas City, Missouri, and Airick West from the board of the Kansas City, Missouri School District.

And remember…you don’t have to be a great bowler to play with us.

Reminder: Let the Office Know if you Plan to Bring a guest The good news is that Club 13 Rotarians continue to reach out to those in the community who would make great new Rotarians. The bad news is that sometimes they forget to let the office know ahead of time. Please remember to let the office know beforehand when you plan to bring a guest to a meeting. This will help to ensure that every meeting runs as smoothly as possible. Thank you.
