Last Meeting (Mar 20, 2018)
- Rotarians and Lions gathered with the WLHS community to support and congratulate the students who were inducted into the National Honor Society. President Anna Hanson read remarks on behalf of Rotary; President Roberto Moreno read remarks on behalf of the Lions club. The keynote address was given by Jeff Kaufmann, former state representative, current chair of the Republican party of Iowa, and professor of history at Muscatine Community College. Many thanks to Gretchen Nollman for arranging the cake, punch, napkins, plates and plastic cutlery.
- Approximately 150 people attended the workshop One Life, One Chance: Opioids In Our Backyards on Wednesday at the community center. It was a very informative and eye-opening evening. Our Rotary club supplied bottled water for the event, which was sponsored by the West Liberty Community School District, the West Liberty Police Department, and Trinity Muscatine Public Health.
- The WLCSD Athletic Boosters need help with grilling meat for three track meets: April 3, April 27 and May 3. Help would be needed between 4:30 and 8:00 p.m. on those dates. The need is especially great on May 3, when 26 schools will attend the meet. Please let Anna Hanson know if you are available and willing to help on any of those days (641-799-1303, firstname.lastname@example.org).

- Is anyone from our club planning to attend the international convention June 24-27 in Toronto (a 10 ½ hour drive from WL)? If so, please let Anna know so that you can be our club’s voting delegate at the convention.
