No Morning Meeting Sept. 21!
 
Instead, meet us at 4:30 PM at Tom Fooleries on the Plaza, 612 W 47th St, Kansas City, MO 64112 for a fun Happy Hour with your fellow Plazans, then wander through the Plaza Art Fair at your leisure. Parking will be limited at the Plaza for this event, so we recommend Lyft or Uber to get you to and from. Click on any of the bold gold text above to take you to the weblinks.
 
(You have to download the Lyft & Uber apps to your smart phone, but it's super simple!-- have your 8 yr old grand daughter or neighbor kid show you how! No shame--My 22 yr old has to help me with the TV remotes regularly.)
 
Attention all mentors!  Rotaract KC is meeting September 26th at Ruins Pub 6:30 to 8:00pm.  The Club LOVES our attendance and interaction.  Please send an email to: rich@thelindenevents.com if you are interested in attending!  Thank you!  Cheers to Service!
Greetings Plaza Rotarians!
 
Have a favor to ask.
 
In addition to Rotary and Scouting, I volunteer time each month to supporting Veterans in their transitions into the workforce.
 
Please consider joining me at:
6:30pm on Friday October 12, at the Marriott Kansas City Overland Park, and sharing your insights about careers, and how great Kansas City is with club officers of the Student Veterans of America from several regional colleges.
 
More details and sign up are available here:
Thanks for coming, if you can!
 
Best,
Scott Weaver
 
 
We are a little over two weeks away from the 2018 KC Games for Good and things are shaping up to make this another great year. There are still a few ways you can help out with the event. Karyn Eppler, Steve Johnston and Rich Cane are making plans for a Rotary exhibit and will, no doubt, need some help with ideas as well as people to help tend the booth on
Challenge Accepted.

To all District 6040 Rotarians,
 
We are having a food fight!  Marc Horner and I decided to have a little friendly competition and raise food, money and awareness for the food pantries of North Missouri.  Attached are:
 
1-The 2018 Rotary Food Fight Flyer- please note that your club will receive 1 point for a pound of food, 4 points for each dollar donated and 10 points for each hour of service in a food pantry.  Since we are a service club, we thought the most points should go to the service aspect of this challenge.
2-The 2018 Food Fight Teams---see which team your clubs is on and develop a plan now.
3-The Food Pantry list in North Missouri by County.  If you have a place in your community that you'd like to serve and it isn't on this list, please contact Chad Higdon and see if it can be added.
 
Part I of RLI Coming on Sept. 29!
 
Whether you've been a Rotarian for 60 days or 60 years, there's a great opportunity coming up on September 29 to learn more about Rotary and how to be a better leader of volunteers, including Rotarians!  Part I of the Rotary Leadership Institute (RLI) will be offered in Chillicothe on that date, covering topics ranging from My Leadership in Rotary to Engaging Members and Creating Service Projects. Classes begin at 8:30 and end by 3:00, and are limited to 15-20 participants. Contact Plazan Jerry Venters, the RLI District Coordinator, at jvrotary6040@yahoo.com for more information.
