Wow, what a fun program last week. For our quarterly birthday auction, we celebrated the following birthdays:  Kim Byers, Kevin Jasa, Adam Kline, Gary Palmer and Bruce Mason.  East person brought a gift to be auctioned to our eager bidders.  The proceeds were donated to each person's designated charity.  Kim Byers - Dorothy's House; Adam Kline - Bondurant Education Foundation; Kevin Jasa, the Child Advocacy Center; and Gary Palmer and Bruce Mason to Polio Plus.  Each of them was then asked to give a brief synopsis of their personal and professional life.  We are now looking forward to the end of next quarter for another fun birthday auction meeting.
 
Notes from the Board Meeting - Planning for ten library boxes to be placed in Altoona, Bondurant, Pleasant Hill and Runnells.  Further discussion on that at our meeting tomorrow.  Also, the Community Service Committee will be suggesting ways to help needy families at Christmas.  President Mike will be announcing plans for January as fitness month.  And, still looking for someone to serve as president-elect-elect.  
 
This week we will meet in our committees.
 
Marti Kline is Sergeant at Arms.
 
Upcoming - 2019 Bowling Bash, Friday afternoon, February 22.  This is a very important fund raiser for the Iowa Technology Expo and other community projects.  We would like to fill all the lanes at the Great Escape this year, so start getting your teams together now.  All forms are available to print from the East Polk Rotary website.  Mike Hamilton will be asking us to sign up to bring a basket for the silent auction.
