Re: Date Change for the Plaza Rotary Cancer Survivors Park Fall Volunteer Event
This service date has been changed to Saturday, October 27th because the earlier date conflicted with the Kansas City Marathon.
The Sergeants have the sign-up sheet. Service time is scheduled for 9-11 AM
Reach out to Paul Temme at paulctemme@gmail.com if you missed the sign up sheet but would like to help.

Over the next 3 Fridays-- Please bring a bottle of wine to our Friday morning meeting to donate to our silent auction wine basket for the District 6040 Foundation Dinner. Deliver to the Sgt at Arms table for Roger Samuel to collect--Thank you!
The District Foundation dinner is fast approaching, and our club is once again going to be a Global Sponsor.  We're looking to fill two tables of 10 each.  Email Roger Samuel if you're interested. A few details on this year's event:
Subject: KC Games for Good Cancelled
Good morning. If you were at this morning’s meeting, you already know we have decided to cancel the 2018 Games for Good Event tomorrow, 10/6, due to the rain.
We do not make this decision lightly. We had a record number of teams and exhibitors, but feel that this is in the best interest of all participants. This is an outdoor event. Several of the competitions – the mechanical bull, the inflatable obstacle course, the wacky trike relay – will be seriously jeopardized by inclement weather. In addition, today’s rain will limit the ability to park on the lawn. Finally, the threat of additional rain tomorrow will likely limit attendance, and thus undermine our success.
We are grateful for all the support we have received from the club, both in terms of your willingness to volunteer and your contributions.
If you’ve made a contribution (or commitment), someone will contact you individually in the next few days to determine what you’d like for us to do. We can:
  1. refund the donation in full; or,
  2. hold your contribution as a donation to the 2019 event; or,
  3. combine your fee with other funds that have been contributed for the event beneficiaries and provide you appropriate notification of the donation.
Please mark your calendar for next year’s event: October 5, 2019 on the south lawn of the National WWI Museum & Memorial.
And again, thank you for your continued support.

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.
