Rotary Club of Kirksville-Thousand Hills
14 November 2019
PROGRAM: The US Department of Agriculture; 
Shane Eberling
Shane talked to us about the USDA Rural Development Program. Shane is the Area One Director in Missouri.  The state has only four Rural Development area, so he covers a lot of counties in the region and hi job involves a lot of travel. Rural Development is divided into three segments—business, housing, and rural utilities. The loan program of rural development is a large part of what the agency does. Shane shared lots of fact sheets and pamphlets with us about the various programs and assistance available through USDA. It is one of the only governmental agencies that can build a community from the ground up. The Adair County office is located at 2410 S. Franklin Street.
Pictured above are Club President Jon Peck and Shane Eberling.
December 14th is our day for Salvation Army Bell Ringing.  Sign up sheet will be available next week.  Please check your availability and sign up if you have the time.  We hope to get enough people signed up this year to do one hour shifts and not two hours. 
ATSU Rotaract is looking for support with an effort to “Warm up Kirksville” by making and donating blankets to the local Community Mission, for the purpose of being given to the homeless and less fortunate. More information on how our club, or you individually, can be a part of this fellowship will be coming soon.
