Help the Plaza Club return to Every Rotarian Every Year (EREY) status, meaning we’re a club in which every member is giving at least $100 per year to the Rotary Foundation. 
 
As most of you know, $25 of your quarterly dues go to the Foundation, but THERE'S AN EASIER WAY
Simply go to https://map.rotary.org/en/securememberservices/pages/SelectFundR.aspx?FUND=APF and sign up for Rotary Direct.  You can opt to give any amount over any time period, but by committing to as little as $8.33 a month, you’ll be helping the Plaza Club attain EREY (Every Rotarian, Every Year) status. 
 
SIGN UP BEFORE THE END OF THE YEAR AND THE CLUB WILL AWARD YOUR ACCOUNT WITH 500 PAUL HARRIS POINTS, MEANING YOU’LL BE HALF WAY TO YOUR FIRST (OR NEXT) PAUL HARRIS FELLOWSHIP!
 
Reason #1- Give a minimum of $8.33 monthly instead of $25 quarterly, automatically via debit card-- Set It and Forget It!
 
Reason #2- Credit card charges are paid by Rotary International instead of the Plaza Club, and at a much lower rate. Your money works more!
 
Reason #3- Easier tracking for Tax Purposes- for you and the Club.
 
Reason #4- 500 POINTS TO PAUL HARRIS FELLOWSHIP if you sign up before December 31, 2017
 
Continuing our long tradition, Club members will deliver Saturday night dinners to the residents of the Bridge Home located at 6033 Swope Parkway. The sign-up sheet is with the Sgt at Arms. The meals include an entrée such as spaghetti and meat sauce, scalloped potatoes w/ham, turkeys, chili w/fixing’s, taco casserole to name a few suggestions along with bread, salad, side and dessert. The kids and staff constitute 24 portions.  Meals should be delivered by 3:00 PM on Saturdays, December 2, 9, 16, and 23. You can also email Paul Temme to sign up for a meal item.
 
The District approved our grant request for the sum of $2,400. The plan is to use matching Club funds to purchase and install four sets of clothes washers and dryers in the Hope House shelter in Independence, Missouri. Club members will repaint the entire laundry facility and install needed and appropriate shelving in January 2018. More specifics will come in December.
TIP #6: 
Be persistent. There will be times that it takes literally a dozen requests to get someone to a meeting. Keep asking. They may come to a meeting, or tell you they can’t join now because they are too busy, or they aren’t interested in joining at the moment. These are all fine answers as long as you keep track of them and keep in touch. How many times did you have to be asked?
 
 
NO, I really don't want you to share it, I just want you to know if you know it. Practice logging in to ClubRunner TODAY.
Just go here,
and get your log in set up. You can set up....

Shoes Enthusiasts in North Missouri –

Greetings to you.  Thank you for your service through Rotary.
You may recall that we had planned a Shoes Delivery Trip to Guatemala for the first week of October.  However, I believe the lead time for planning was just not sufficient, and for that, I apologize.  Though we did have those who had signed up, we did not have enough sign-ups for the trip to come to fruition. Which simply means we need more lead time for planning.
