Rotary Club of Kirksville
11 JULY 2019
Program: District 6040 Global Grants;
Karyn Eppler
Karyn Eppler is the district Global Grants chairperson.  She talked to us today about the process of obtaining a global grant. She stated that the foundation funds fuel the ability for the district to award grant funds.  Money donated to the foundation is given back, in part, to the district in the form of grant funds after three years of accruing interest in the foundation. There are very specific rules that guide the global grants process.  Karyn told us that the project for a global grant must cost a minimum of $30,000, and that the project must fall within the scope of one of the six Rotary International areas of focus.  She showed us a video of some of the grants that have been awarded in the past and some that are currently being funded. Our club was recognized in the video as a "People of Action" award winner for the work we do with our Days for Girls project.  Karyn is pictured below with Club President Jon Peck.
Our club received thank you notes from the students we sponsored for girls and boys state, as well as the students that attended the National FBLA competition in San Antonio.

We presented a check to Frank Vorhees from the MOOSE LODGE, for their efforts in supporting our Reverse Raffle each year.  Pictured below are Rotarians Karla Dwyer and Jon Peck, and Moose Lodge representative Frank Vorhees.
Blessing Bowl: Larry Burton -  $5.  When Larry was just out of high school he worked at a factory and drove a 1964 Fairlane that did not always run very well.  One evening he came off work and his car would not go into drive. He drove 15 miles home, to Cooter, MO, in reverse!
Thanks to Karyn Eppler, Jeff Romine, Sam Wilson, Robert Collinge, and Frank Vorhees for joining us today!
