Congratulations Plaza Rotary Club Members!

At the recent District 6040 Rotary Foundation Dinner, Plaza Rotary received several awards and recognition for our support of Rotary both locally and internationally during the 2017-18 Rotary Year. 

We were recognized as a Star Club Level 4 which means that on average we contributed between $400 and $499 per capita to the Annual Fund/SHARE program.  This is the program from which funds are made available for District Grants - every year, 50% of the District monies given 3 years ago are made available for District Grants in OUR District.   In fact, Plaza Rotary was second highest in the District in per capita giving to this Fund at $441.04 per member!   Thank you for supporting our fund raisers and for your generosity!

We also were recognized for achieving the District goal of $1500 per club to the End Polio Now program.  These monies went to Polio Plus that will help us achieve The Rotary Foundation’s number one goal - The Eradication of Polio.   We achieved this goal through our Pars for Polio sponsorship and our monthly contributions to Polio Plus (the additional $25 in your quarterly dues).   Congratulations on achieving the club goal and the per capita giving goal towards this worthy effort!

Plaza Rotary was awarded the Presidential Citation - an award that requires the club achieve several goals in multiple categories including a net increase in membership and projects in designated areas of focus.

The major District award that our club received was the coveted Klinginsmith Cup.  This award was started in 2009-10 in honor of our Rotary International President, Ray Klinginsmith, from the Kirksville Rotary Club, who served as RI President in 2010-11.  We received this award based on receiving the Presidential Citation and our contribution to the Annual Fund/SHARE.  This is the 7th year we have been awarded the Cup.   Well done!

On behalf of Club President Rotary Year 2017-18, Jeff Chapman, THANK YOU for all you do in the name of Rotary!

Thanks to your collective generosity, there were three whisk(e)y baskets on the silent auction table at the District 6040 Rotary Foundation Dinner.  Here's a description of what was auctioned off:

1.  Whiskey basket donated by the Plaza Rotary Club's whisky club.  Value $125.
 An assortment of some of the world's highest rated Kentucky bourbons, including a bottle of the VERY hard-to-find Blanton's Single Barrel.
 
2.  Whiskey basket donated by the Plaza Rotary Club's whisky club.  Value $125.
An assortment of bourbons from some of America's most popular craft distilleries--one each from here in Kansas City, Iowa and Utah.  Just because they're not from Kentucky doesn't mean they're not delicious!
 
3.  Whisky basket donated by the Plaza Rotary Club's whisky club.  Value $225.
We can't call this a scotch whisky basket because one of the offerings is the highly sought-after Nikka from the Barrel from Japan.  If you like smoky, peaty scotch whisky, you'll love the Ardbeg An Oa!
