Rotary Club of Kirksville - Thousand Hills
March 21, 2019
Program: Reverse Raffle Committee
Karla Dwyer, Marilyn Romine, Terri Jones, and Wayne Blackman talked about the reverse raffle.  We still need wine and silent auction items.  Contact Marilyn or Terri if you have ideas to share or items/money to donate. We need all members at the event to help make the night run smoothly.  Every member there must purchase a ticket.  If you have tickets to sell and cannot sell them contact Wayne.  If you need tickets contact Wayne.  The Reverse Raffle is on APR 13th at the Moose Lodge.  This is the 7th year that we will have run the event, and Karla reminded us how this all got started when she was president of the club, and our good friend and fellow Rotarian, Pat Murdock, brought the idea forward.  The first year we raised $9,000, and each year since has raised more than the last.  Last year we raised over $20,000 from this one event.  It is a fun night and the proceeds from the evening allow us to give generously to charitable causes all year long. Pat's sister and daughter will be in attendance this year.  It is fitting that we remember Pat, and the legacy she left behind on this occasion.  The Reverse Raffle is, among so many other things, a constant reminder of Pat's "service above self" spirit, and a time to remember what a wonderful friend, Rotarian, and person she was.


The Chamber, and many local businesses are sponsoring the April Showers give-aways again this year.  For detailed information see the flyer below. 
Take your red shirts in to the Stitching Post to get the Rotary logo embroidered on them. Cost is $5 and it takes about a week to get it done, so get them in soon if you want it done before the reverse raffle.
