180 bookshelves built in 180 minutes! It's quite an impressive process...just like Santa's workshop! Our thanks to Roger Bowles for organizing this project and Bob Goebel for providing the wood, supplies and workshop! A special thanks to our District Governor Kurt Harper and Jessica, 4th grade teacher from Lawrence Elementary for taking time out of their evening schedule to lend a hand! All those in attendance last Thursday evening include: Roger Bowles, Rod Brown, Bob Broeckelman, Bob Goebel, Grady Goff, Cindy Hand, DG Kurt Harper, Jessica (teacher), Shelli Kadel, Vern Klassen, Dan Kreis, John Mosley, Jonathan Roper and Diane Walker. The bookshelves will be delivered to the first graders at Benton and Lawrence Elementary schools on Tuesday, January 21, during our regular club meeting time (mark your calendar now). The remainder of the bookshelves will go to another area elementary school.

At induction, new members are presented with a temporary red badge to wear at our meetings. They are asked to choose five of the ten categories listed below and complete at least one item from each of those five categories (if there are multiple items to choose from). Upon completion, they receive their permanent blue badge. The goal of this program is to help new members expand their knowledge of Rotary and present opportunities for Rotary service and fellowship.

We've done lots of playground maps using a stencil of the United States. We just completed creating a stencil that will let us do a world map.
Next up will be to actually put a map on a playground. Anyone have a location in mind?
