Poema talked about how her family escaped from war-torn Kosovo when she was only four. She wants to study counseling in college and return to help her people in Kosovo. She gave a very inspirational presentation tonight.
We also want to thank Deepak Giri and Mary Pat Brooke for providing the meal this evening. We had a pork tenderloin sandwich, french fries, baked beans and brownies.

New Shoes Needed
District 6000 Governor Terry Geiger’s project this year is collecting new shoes for people in Africa. The shoes need to be in shoe boxes for easier shipping. We will need the shoes by the District Conference of April 11-13. Terry wants every club in the District to donate one pair for every member. Therefore, our club’s goal is to have 40 pairs of shoes.
The McVey Honor Society induction ceremony for West Liberty High School students will be March 11 at 7 PM at the West Liberty High School Auditorium. Plans are to try to have Rotary and Lions club members host students and their parents that night. The keynote speaker will be U.S. Representative Dave Loebsack.
