Last Meeting (Dec 4, 2018)
- Jennifer Blair (past Rotary Ambassador) and Jim Peterson gave a presentation about the Tanzania water project. The Iowa City A.M. club is leading this project; they have $28,000 in commitments from D6000 clubs (including ours) and a commitment of $40,000 from Hy-Vee. After the Rotary district in Tanzania has given approval, the project will move forward. Estimated total final cost: $150,000.
- Literacy Night at the Early Learning Center (ELC) will take place on December 10. Our club will provide a light meal for the event. We plan to serve brats, chips and fruit from 5:30 – 5:50. Marian will bring the food; we need a few volunteers to help serve.
