Last Thursday was President Ford Nelson’s last call to preside over a Club 13 meeting in the Trianon Room at the Muehlebach. Ford goes out with a bang next week in the Count Basie Ballroom when our speaker will be Sly James, Mayor of Kansas City, Missouri. Ford opened the meeting, thanked the Vocational Service Committee greeters and introduced the amazing musical duo of Carl Bolte and Charlie Huffman who led us in singing the ever popular "America the Beautiful". Rick Beyer offered a moving invocation and Marty McInerney welcomed two guests who joined our
Kansas City Rotary Club Foundation with your contributions.
meeting today. Ford announced the good news that Don Patterson will be home on the 17th. Our best wishes again go Don and to Lindsay Ripley who will be returning to LA on July 5th to undergo another round of throat surgery and a month's hospital stay after her operation. We also learned that last Friday Norm Waters brother had died in an accident.

Woody Davis moved that The Club that a 5th Avenue of Service (New Generations Service) be added to our club bylaws. The motion was seconded and then approved by voice vote. Ford announced that the Night at the Zoo had 420 attendees for a new record. The Parkville club helped swell the count with more than 50 attendees. Rick Retrum said that he has 112 signed for the June 30th COG party and looks for at least 150 to change the guard in high style. Meanwhile we will be doing the Drunken Fish on June 21st and then on June 25th our own Club 13 team competes in the Dragon Boat race on Brush Creek. Vivien Jennings made the introduction of author Jeff Guinn who gave a great off the cuff recounting of history as it really was. Jeff undid lore stamped deeply in the American psyche. From his 16th book we learn that Doc Holliday was a dentist who couldn’t shoot a drunken fish in a barrel. Wyatt Earp was a man “who did not like to dicker”, had been on both sides of the law, and wanted to be elected sheriff to collect and keep a substantial percentage of taxes from the railroad, et al. Jeff told how the shootout at the OK Corral happened between two distrustful groups at a distance of 3 feet; not at the OK Corral but in a nearby vacant lot. And … 1881 Tombstone was a pretty sophisticated town at the time with three world-class theaters presenting opera and ballet, with restaurants serving the finest imported wines and oysters; and with stores that sold clothing fit for high rollers on the east coast. Tombstone had telephones and was about to install a sewer system. We really enjoyed listening to Jeff Guinn and he likes coming to Kansas City. Good deal all around! .

We are asking for your help in funding Camp Enterprise for 2011, which will be the weekend of Sept. 17th and 18th. Camp Enterprise is an overnight business and leadership camp for Kansas City area high school juniors. Students learn what is involved in running a small business. We have civic leaders, including some members of Club 13, speak to the students.
The Rotary Youth Camp will be holding its 2nd Annual Rummage Sale September 9-10-11, 2011. When you have items ready to donate contact Camp Superintendent Laurie Mozley to arrange delivery or pick up (of large items). Thanks to everyone who helped out last year. We will need volunteers to unpack, set up and assist with clean up again this year. Let Laurie know if you are available to help out.
This year we plan to have Jan Marcason, Wes Wingfield and Jason Roske from the club, as well as Gail Worth from Gail Worth's Harley. We are still working on securing additional speakers. There are many requests made for your financial help. Why donate to Camp Enterprise? Camp Enterprise is the only program of Club 13 where club members have direct contact with the students using the Rotary Youth Camp. This project benefits local students, is now in its 35th year, and deserves your support! We estimate that it costs about $100 per student for Camp Enterprise. Please consider funding one or more students for the weekend with a contribution of $100 or more. Or, if that is more than you feel comfortable with, please consider funding a student for one day of the weekend at $50. All contributions are tax deductible. This is the really important part. We can double whatever money we can collect if you make your check payable to “CAMP FOR KIDS”. Camp for Kids will match what we collect for Camp Enterprise. We want to thank Ray Delia and Don Stebbins for enabling us to get these matching funds. So please write a check today made payable to "CAMP FOR KIDS". Note on the check that this contribution is for Camp Enterprise, and send the check to the Rotary office. Thank you for your help.
