Hurricane Harvey Assistance
Dear Plaza Rotarians,
I've received no less than twenty messages about our club supporting the efforts financially in Texas.

Since this event is so tragic and will not be resolved overnight, I'm going to make time in the meeting this Friday to encourage members with ideas to send them to me so that I can review with you and make a decision for support that is most effective and meaningful. 

As you think of or hear of potential ways to support the efforts, please send them my way. I'm going to appoint a special committee for this purpose. I don't want to react too quickly and support something that doesn't get directly to those who need it most. 
Thank you,
Jeff Chapman

Debra Anderson Honored at the K
While at the K for a Royals Game on August 28, Ann Leabo witnessed this familiar face on the jumbotron! The Royals honored our own Plazan Debra Anderson for her military service and her work at the VFW.
