​​​​​​​•    Meeting of June 20, 2018    ​​​​​​​​•    


Jacob opened the meeting at 7:32am
Invocation was given by Alexa.
Thanked mac for making things applicable. Corinthians 13 is love is patient love is kind. I've never liked it and it never felt applicable to her. Someone suggested replacing love with wife. How about mother? Now it felt applicable. What if we replaced it with rotarian.
A rotarian is patient, a rotarian is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 a rotarian does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Remember our role of a rotarian. Service above self.
Rotary Minute - Cathy - Rotary fellowship exchange gives participants opportunity to visit other rotarians and experience rotary internationally. Non members are eligible to participate starting last year. You can travel as a group, family, or individually. Learn about other regions, people, culture, history, and rotary experience. The youth exchange for adults.
Mark Magneys ticket was called, he had a great cribbage hand, but the drawing of the card was not successful; potential winnings added to next week’s drawings.
•    Alexa - Introduced Omar. Omar was a GED graduate that we granted a scholarship to. GED was hard work, but wanted to thank us for the contribution and opportunity to pursue his education. He wants to go into nursing or business.
•    Alexa, again - welcoming Mark with the Ridgedale YMCA. Wrote us a grant for camp Christmas tree. Is a rotarian and director at ymca. Grant would send four students to camp, but rotary decided to make it five! All five kids are going to camp and would otherwise not be able to afford it. This is the definition of building responsible youth. 
•    Mark Marlin - Summerfest this Saturday. We need your kids, and potentially dogs? Need a server, and Sam stepped up big. Also need raffle a ticket seller from 4-7 and two ticket sellers from 7-10.
