The meeting was called to order by President Don Flannery.   Jessica Worley offered the inspirational invocation and then led the group in the Pledge of Allegiance and the 4-Way Test.  Lance Noe introduced guests and visiting Rotarians.
 
President Don introduced three of our newer club members who completed their new member  orientation  today:  Ashley Hemphill,  KV Venkatraman, and  Matt Unger.
 
Today‚Äôs speaker, Tray Wade, was introduced by Marissa Conrad.  Tray is the President and CEO of EveryStep, a local charitable organization with a relatively new name, but with a very long history.   Visiting Nurse Services (VNS) of Iowa was founded in 1908.  HCI Care Services (Hospice of Central Iowa) was established in 1978.  Amanda The Panda grief and loss support and counseling started over 30 years ago.  These are probably the three best known of the more than 30 programs operating under the EveryStep umbrella.  The merger of HCI and VNS took place in 2012.  The new name for the combined organization, EveryStep, was established just a year ago.  The most significant reason for the merger, and the subsequent addition of other programs and services, is to reduce administrative costs such as payroll and benefits, insurance, fund raising, etc., so that more of the funds raised can be used for direct services to clients.
