We are currently building the slate of officers for the 20-21 Rotary year.  Our presentation to the club needs to occur by the middle of December.  We are looking, in particular, for Secretary and Treasurer positions to serve a minimum of two years.  Please contact Aileen or Erik if you are interested in learning more or have suggestions as to strong candidates we should be reaching out to.
 
Thank you!
Aileen
The Kansas City Plaza Rotary Club has adopted two families with children at Gordon Parks Elementary School, a Charter Elementary school at 3715 Wyoming, Kansas City, Missouri. Click on the whole story for suggested gift items.
           
This Friday will be the last meeting where money will be collected so that shopping can be done and the presents wrapped hopefully before December 5th I have already purchased two winter coats for the first family and winter coats for the girls in the second family.  If you would like to help with the purchasing, please contact Frances Reddis at freddis2014@hotmail.com or 816-853-3256.  We also plan on having a gift wrapping session at a place and time yet to be determined.

The Rotary Foundation notified the district’s Microcredit Chair, Randy Steinman (Kansas City Plaza Club), on October 24th the next $25,000 installment for the microcredit grant has been wired to the district. These funds are part of a $125,000, five year Global Grant project to provide business startup loans to women living in poverty in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic.
 
 
 
 
 
 
To date this project has helped approximately 80 women start businesses with small loans of $250-750 US. The profits from these businesses help repay the loans and create an income stream to help these women lift themselves and their families out of poverty. Of these women 32 have already repaid their loans in full.
