Highlights of September 2 Meeting
 

We had an exciting official visit with District Governor Elizabeth Mahoney. She even brought her own life-sized logo doors!
We learned from her the meaning of the color of each door: the red represents Rotaract, the yellow is for Interact and the blue is for Rotary. The logo "Rotary Opens Opportunities" refers to the opportunities we open by giving back to our community, as well as the opportunities Rotary opens for us.
 
Elizabeth praised our club's generosity, with $231,118 ($515 per member) in total giving to the Rotary Foundation. She also talked about things happening around the world that we helped with while we were sleeping, including her short-notice trip chaperoning 5 Arizona high school students who delivered wheel chairs to polio victims in Kenya. This year, the district has given out $1.7 million in global grants and $90,000 in district grants, all of which we contributed to.
 
Elizabeth urged us to focus on our vision for 2020-21 by thinking about how we can continue to open opportunities for each other and the community we serve, and to also think about what we want to be known for and what we need to do to take us in that direction.
 
 
President Harvey Clark and District Governor Elizabeth Mahoney presented a posthumous Paul Harris Fellow to Dorothy Homann, in honor of her husband, long-time Rotarian, Bob Homann. Bob believed Rotary had a great mission in service and served Rotary in multiple clubs and capacities: Assistant District Governor, President, Treasurer, Secretary and Newsletter Editor.
 
His impact and dedication to the community and his positive spirit epitomized the Rotary vision of “SERVICE ABOVE SELF”. The people whose lives he touched and his accomplishments within the communities of Gold Canyon and Apache Junction, Morehead, Minnesota and Forest City, Iowa set an example for Rotarians everywhere.
