Rotary Club of Kirksville-Thousand Hills
15 August 2019
PROGRAM: Exploring Israel; 
John Dungan
John talked to our club about a recent trip he put together to the Holy Land.  He took 18 people on a seven day trip through Israel over the summer.  They started out in the North at Tiberias and then journeyed South to Jerusalem as well as the Dead Sea.  They stopped at many of the notable biblical places along the way where Jesus traveled and performed His ministry. John shared some very nice photos of the trip and the things they saw.  He said that one of the things that surprised him was how close many of the sites were.  Capernaum and Tiberias are only 12 miles apart, and the distance between Jerusalem and Bethlehem is only 6 miles.  John said the balcony at the hotel  where they stayed in Tiberias had a stunning view of the Sea of Galilee, and that one of the many highlights of the trip for him, was a voyage on the Sea of Galilee in a fishing boat. 
Our meeting on September 5th will be at The Pines.
We are getting Rotary work T-Shirts made.  The shirts will be navy blue and have a large Rotary Wheel on the back.  They will be non-club specific, and the hope is we will all wear them as we go forth in the coming months with the work that needs to be conducted at the trailhead/natural playground, in conjunction with the collaborative, grant-funded project.  Cost is $10 for S-XL, $12 for a 2XL, and $13 for a 3XL. Let Jon P. know if you want a shirt and did not get the chance to sign up for one.
The Energy Trail benches and Rotary signage has been taken down and moved just a few blocks South to the location of the future trailhead/natural playground. The Energy Trail was a great project for our Club for years and served its purpose well, but with the Pines moving and the future of the land at the Energy Trail's location unclear, the board determined it was time to decommission that project and begin something new at the location mentioned above.
Dale Watson is having a birthday soon.  You will receive a separate email later this evening with the address of where to send a card if you wish to do so.
