Summary of April 5th Meeting
 
Thanks to your generosity we collected $17.00  in 'Happy Bucks' and 'Dollars for the Foundation' last week.  All these contributions benefit the Rotary International Foundation.
 
 
Our speaker last week was Brooke Haller, RN, BSN. Brooke is the Education Specialist and Outreach Coordinator for the Trauma and Burn Service Unit at The University of Kansas Hospital.  "Specialists at The University of Kansas Health System provide comprehensive inpatient and outpatient care to adults and children with complex burns and wounds. In addition, we treat skin injuries and conditions such as frostbite, severe dermatitis, and abrasions. Patients receive a continuum of advanced care that includes burn wellness programs and a burn survivor support group."  Thank you Brooke!  You can read more here: www.kansashealthsystem.com/medical-services/burn-wound-care

ROTARY MINUTE
 
 
April 10, 2018
 
Rotary is a verb.
 
ro·ta·ry / rōdərē /
verb
  1. caring about people  
 
Through Rotary, we help people at home and abroad.  The projects we do and the Foundation money we give is working all over the world at every minute of the day and night. 
 
Rotary Club of Johnson County is providing emergency help to people in the community as well as providing long-term help for family planning.
 
Our support of the St. Mary’s Food Kitchen meets an immediate need of people caught in poverty.  The support of needy kids and families through Growing Futures assures that many kids will be ready for success in schools while building parent knowledge and support toward their futures. 
 
JoCo Rotary is also helping to build good food sources with a healthy environment through our project to plant a “Giving Grove” here in our county. 
 
These projects happen due to Rotarians and their bent for “Service to Humanity.”  We could do even more if we could add more Rotarians to our club.  If you invite just one person to come to a club meeting you might be “planting another seed!”
