Have you ever heard a Rotarian speak about their personal experience participating in a polio eradication exercise, a cleft lip/cleft palate mission, or work on a humanitarian grant?  These trips have a profound effect upon the individual.  For those of you who have gone on one of these trips you know, and for those of you who have yet to enjoy this experience, you should.
 
In October 2017, North American Rotarians will travel to Accra, Ghana for a life changing experience.  
Have a broken or outdated Club Badge?  Just want to replace your clip back with a magnet back one?  We will place a bulk order (gets us a $2 discount) after the Friday August 18 meetingPlease see us at the Sergeants at Arms table or contact Scott Weaver to place your order.
Have an Experience or Hobby you'd like to share with the Club? "Know Your Rotarian" is a terrific 3-Minute meeting feature. We have meetings that need an alternate 3-minute interesting presentation, and have started a roster. You'll be contacted at least a week in advance of the meeting at which you'll present. Please see Scott Weaver at the Sergeants at Arms table to add your name.
$5,000 District Grant application with a focus on Maternal and Child Health was submitted on July 14th. 
The Plaza Rotary Club, in coordination with the beneficiary Hope House, will purchase and install four sets of clothes washers and dryers in the existing residential shelter in Independence, Missouri. Plaza Rotarians will repaint the entire laundry facility and install needed and appropriate shelving.  The washers and dryers purchased in this project will replace older, worn-out equipment that requires frequent and costly repairs.  The objective is to provide necessary and dependable laundry equipment and facilities for residents (women and children) who cannot afford to use off-campus laundry facilities, often do not have adequate transportation to access off-campus laundries, and, more importantly, whose safety may be imperiled if they are seen in the community by their spouses or partners or their friends and associates.  If the grant is approved, the Club is committed to completing the project by March 1, 2018.

Gordon Parks Elementary School is seeking donations for their 2017 School Supplies Drive. 100% of the GP students qualify for free/reduced lunch program through the federal government, so supplies can fall to the wayside.  Supplies or financial donations are welcome. Contributions received by August 1 will help help the children start their new school year off right. Please go to this website for more details: http://www.gordonparks.org/content/donate
