Bulletin for February 14, 2022
Our club had the opportunity to tour Hope Faith Homeless Assistance Campus last Friday, a non profit that works to alleviate homelessness and poverty in Kansas City. The campus was filled with individuals and families seeking assistance.

President's Message

At our last meeting, we discussed the second phase of the Learning Club service project. In this phase we are donating snacks including: wrapped snacks (e.g., granola bars), sandwich crackers, pure fruit strips, Nutri-gain bars, and Cheez-its. Donations can be dropped off at Merle Norman's on 95th street in Lenexa or brought to our meeting this Thursday, March 3rd.
Members also expressed interest in organizing a service project to support Hope Faith Homeless Campus. One thing mentioned during our tour, is the need for men's clothing (sizes 32 to 40) including shoes, socks, jeans, slacks and gloves. Donations are accepted at the Hope Faith Homeless campus at 705 Virginia ave., K.C., Mo. 64106 from 6:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Gabe provided the following links to resources on the Hope Faith website that offer ideas for fundraising: 
We will continue to discuss and plan service projects including those that actively engage us with the community. Our speaker this week is Mark Sharp from Deanna Rose Children's Farmstead. 
Hope to see you this Thursday!

Rotary Minute January 31, 2022
Rotary is celebrated as a Service organization, but is also a Training organization.  Rotarians are always encouraged to be leaders. We are taught to use and develop the skills of organization and to see projects through.  Many of us have gained and developed those skills as board members, project organizers, club secretaries and club presidents.  These traits have led Rotarians and Rotary projects to success all over the world.
Rotarians provide youth training opportunities with Rotaract and Interact clubs in schools and colleges. Other opportunities, such as the annual Rotary Youth Leadership Academy (RYLA) are available to local youth all over the state.  This training experience has sent hundreds of Kansas kids out into their communities to be future leaders.  
For years, our club  has sponsored high school youth to attend that week-long summer academy.  In fact, club members have sent children, grandchildren,  nephews and nieces, neighbors and church kids we know to our District 5710 RYLA.  If you know kids of sophomore or junior year in HS, you might want to consider asking for an application.  
The most recent ROTARIAN shows how we can train ourselves to be better people, leaders and Rotarians.  Many examples of training and schooling opportunities are featured.  Here we see  club projects, our five Peace Academies and projects that teach skills for living in  the US and foreign countries. 
Rotary is serving, but it also grows  leaders who continue to spread the message of peace,  ethical living and concern for our fellow men and women.
