Rotary Club of Kirksville
Program: Club Business Meeting
Christine led our club in some strategic planning for the coming year.  Her goal is to get a system in place that gives people an idea of what all the different committees are, what the committee member responsibilities are,  and help fill those committees for the coming year.  We have a handful of people that are heavily involved and some of our committees are "committees of one".  Sharing the load more widely would make each person's load a little lighter, but it is important to give people a better understanding of what is needed and what they are signing up for.  Stay tuned for more information about committee needs and please think about what you are passionate about in Rotary and find a way to get involved in that mission or sub-committee.
Our club also presented a $2,500 check to Days for Girls this morning! 


Shoes for orphan souls in Kirksville donated 98 pairs of shoes.  The District set new record this year with 18,819 pairs of shoes donated.  North Star club gave 1.7 miles of shoe laces! Thanks to all that helped in this effort.
District Four Way Speech Contest - Two Kirksville students finished in the top three.  Meg Howard won Second and Joseph Doman won 3rd.  Thanks to Larry and everyone who had a part in making this such a successful event again this year.
