In keeping with Rotary Connects the World, the Plaza club will be hosting GSE (Group Study Exchange) visitors from the Dominican Republic Oct 26-30, 2019. Visitors will stay with local Rotarians to learn about our culture, go on vocational visits, see some of our service work, but mostly to build lasting friendships. On such short notice, Host families had to be determined quickly, however we are in need of drivers, of course. It's a lot of fun to get to know people from around the world, so give it a try! If you'd be interested in shuttling a GSE guest to a vocational appointment, field trip, and back, email Jane Brown to indicate your availability.
In light of all the devastation with Hurricane Dorian, Jane Brown motioned to the Board to make a donation to ShelterBox, which was unanimously approved. Club President Erik Dickinson announced today that the Plaza Rotary Foundation has donated $1500 to ShelterBox for disaster relief. Thank you!
The Rotary Club of Kansas City is hosting a Free Family Picnic at the Rotary Youth Camp on Sunday, October 13 from 4-7. We also will be holding a Trivia Night from 7-9 to raise money for the Camp. I have attached a flyer for you to distribute to your club members.

President Erik and Other Distinguished Members of the Plaza Rotary Club – please see the attached information regarding the ‘small’ Greater Kansas City Rotary (GKCR) project called #RotaryReadsKC.  We’re asking all clubs in the Metro to commit to whatever number of readers they would like to.  We’re targeting that readers read to a 2nd-4th grade class anytime during the week of September 23rd to coincide with the Zone Institute that will be held here in Kansas City.  For more information, check out the website at www.KCRotaryReads.org . The deadline for shirt orders is 8/22/19.  We’re hoping each club collects their own members $20 and submit a single payment to the Overland Park Club (they offered to track the finances).  I’m probably forgetting to tell you something important because I’ve been looking at it too long, so let me know if I’ve missed something.
 
Let me know if you have any questions.  I’ll bring this information on Friday and start passing around the signup. If you're not going to make the meeting, email culbertson.casey@gmail.com to RSVP.
You are invited to attend the Zone 25B and 29 Institute All Club Luncheon at the Overland Park Sheraton! This event will be Friday, September 27 - Noon to 1:45 pm. Zone 25B and 29 is located just across the state line, and extends from Texas to Canada. RI Director Larry Dimmitt, from Topeka, KS is hosting and he would like to extend an invitation to the Kansas City Metro clubs in Missouri to attend the All Club Luncheon. The luncheon speaker will be Past RI Director Larry Lunsford, from District 6040. Larry is currently the Aide to the RI president Mark Maloney.
Cost of the luncheon is $45. All Rotarians are welcome! You can register HERE.
 
The District 6040 Foundation Dinner is always one of the highlights of the Rotary year.
