Tuesday March 1


We have 9 adults and 9 youth signed up and committed

to the mexico Humanitarian Aid Trip this summer.
Preparations are beginning and plans being laid for
transportation, fund raising and logostics for the trip.
It will be a great experience for our local youth
as well as the adult chaperones going along.

The Community Pantry is holding its annual fund raiser:

Corned Beef and Cabbage Dinner and Silent Auction
Saturday March 12, 7:00 pm at the Community Center.
Music will be provided by Leaping LouLou.
Tickets are @20.00 per person
and can be purchased from Rae Riser or
contact the Food Pantry.

March is Rotary Literacy Month.

Sergeant-At-Arms Larry Boyer reminded everyone
to read the March edition of the Rotarian Magazine.
There will be questions to answer next week in meeting!

March 1 is also International Understanding Day.

50 years ago today the Peace Corps was organized.

Dan Hansen introduced today's speaker:

Josi Kilpack is a resident of Perry

and an accomplished author of LDS themed books.
She has published 13 novels and continues to write,
published by Deseret Book Company.

Josi shared her history with literature and reading,

including her lack of interest in the same until her
7th grade reading assignment and book report
completely changed her perspective and interested her
in the art of writing.

She shared 5 gifts that can help each of us find success

in whatever field we venture into:
1. Ability
2. Passion
3. Drive and Ambition
4. Example
5. Opportunity

Thanks, Josi for your humorous and intersting presentation.

Next week Paul Damon's program will be a representative of

Associated General Contractors.
