President's Message

We were honored to have Ron Finke, a fellow Rotarian, present at our breakfast meeting last week. He brought a lot of positive energy to our club as he spoke to us about his experience and passion for Rotary. I loved his quote: Our job as Rotarians is to do the very best we can to create the most value to the most people. It was a day of giving back as our club made donations to the Learning Club, Heart2Heart and E-Ship Rising. Additionally, Ron sold several copies of his book to our club members and gave back 100% of the proceeds to our club. 
 
Have a great week.
 
Becky

An important aspect of Rotary projects is matching grants.  Where projects are done by Rotarians, local or  district or international,  matching monies are often donated by club members.  Our KCK Learning Club Project with inner-city youth is a good example.  
 
As this year’s project was planned,   $1500 in seed money was approved by the Rotary Club of Johnson County Charitable Foundation.   This money, along with member donations, helps three phases of the project.  
 
Phase I of the project pays for citizen service prizes and family Christmas gifts the youngsters would plan on giving their family members.   The amount funded was $700, but the total given to the Learning Club by our club was $1025.   
 
In Phase II of the project, we have funded $400 for snacks at their after-school meetings.  So far,  46 boxes of snacks with an estimated value of $690 have been delivered by Rotarians  as volunteer gifts.  That still leaves the $400 to be delivered to them for snacks.  
 
We need at this point to provide $400 and to begin planning for Phase III of the project. Here we provide another $400 + member donations to buy school supplies for the youngsters in the Learning Club.  This event allows Rotarians to go with some of the LC teen tutors to select and purchase needed books and supplies.  
 
For volunteering additional matching gifts or assistance with shopping,  check with  Bill Robinett,  Gabriel Rop or Larry Williams.  
 
Matching Grants are alive and well at the Rotary Club of Johnson County.
