Rotary Club of Kirksville - Thousand Hills
March 28, 2019
Program: Four Way Test Speech Contest
We watched videos of this year’s local Four Way Speech contest.  All the contestants did a great job.  Each year each club in town sponsors one student to move on to the district level.  This year the finalists that will move on are Joseph Doman, Meg Howard, and James Ehr.  Congratulations to all.  Each student will receive a $200 check from their respective sponsoring club, and the winner of the district competition receives $1,000.  Good luck to these three extremely bright and talented young leaders.


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.
Congratulations to Janet Gremaud for completing all parts of RLI Training!
We also welcomed our new member, Jaren Hafen, to the club this morning!
Blessing Bowl: Elsie Gaber - She once interviewed for a job and her husband was on the panel of interviewers.  He recommended she not be hired!
