Exhibitors, Players, and Visitors all agree-- this year's KC Games for Good was a blast!
After a year of planning, the KC Games For Good Committee's efforts pay off big. Twelve teams competed fiercely in Bubble Soccer, Nerf Archery, Giant Jenga, Harvester's Feed a Hungry Soul, Wiffle Ball Home Run Derby, Water Relay, and Heart to Heart International Palette stacking.
"I just wanted to say thank you again for allowing HappyBottoms to have a booth at the KC Games for Good event this weekend; it was such a well-run and nice event! We really appreciated the opportunity to spread the word about HappyBottoms and how we are helping babies in the community." --Jackie W., Engagement Manager for HappyBottoms.org Diaper Bank
"I hope this Monday afternoon finds you and everyone with the Plaza Rotary Club recovered and well rested from Saturday’s PHENOMENAL event!  I want to thank you and the Plaza Rotary Club for allowing Gordon Parks Elementary School to be a part of such a fun event.  The entire day was so well organized and everyone was so friendly – we had a blast!"  --Tom L., Chief Development Officer, Gordon Parks School
"It was great meeting you Saturday, and thank you so much for the invitation. Please let me know about this as early as possible next year.  I’ll see if we can enter a Girl Scout staff team, or team of troop leaders." --Joey W., Director- Eastern Region, Girl Scouts of NE Kansas & NW Missouri

2016 RYLA-rians Visit the Plaza Rotary
RYLA-arians Sloane, Juliette, and Emma presented on their experiences this June at the 2016 MO RYLA.

First Wire Transfer for Microcredit Goes to the Dominican Republic 
After many months of fundraising, organizing and structuring, Rotary District 6040’s microcredit project in the Dominican Republic is about to launch.
The first wire transfer of $25,000 (U.S. dollars) left the United States in early June 2016. Randy Steinman, Kansas City Plaza Rotarian and District 6040 Microcredit Chair, returns to the Dominican Republic in late June to observe the implementation of the project. 
These funds were wired to District 6040’s Rotary partner for this project, The Rotary Club of Santo Domingo Herrera. The Herrera club will in turn make a presentation to the project’s cooperating partner, Instituto Dominicano de Desarrollo Integral Inc., or IDDI.
IDDI estimates these first funds will help 70-80 families in the Herrera & Alcarrizos neighborhood lift themselves out of poverty. The overall commitment to this project is $125,000 to be distributed over 5 years. This program was made possible as a result of a contributions of District 6040, District 4060 (D.R.), Rotary Clubs in Missouri and a Global Grant from the Rotary Foundation.

We Know Shoes! 
Can't resist one more shout out to all the club members for the impressive showing in this year's annual Shoes for Orphan Souls drive. 
Our club donated 1,219 pairs of shoes and had an impressive showing at the collection, held in connection with the District Assembly  at the Remington Nature Center in St. Joseph.
Here you can see fellow Plaza Rotarians on the truck with shoes -- from left, Dave Bahner, Beth Bahner, Frances Reddis, Larry Lunsford and Cassy Venters.
