Club Service - Winter Party - January 20 - Will be a progressive dinner like last year.  Looking for Rotary members to volunteer their homes.

Youth and Family - Will be meeting with the Interact Club.  Also looking for students to attend RYLA this summer.
Mike Hartwig's speaker this week is Middle School Counselor and Football/Track Coach Pete Drury who will be sharing about his health journey.  Pete lost 95 pounds during the last half of 2017 and has kept it off since reaching his goal weight in February 2018.  Because of that, he has become a Certified Health Coach and is helping literally hundreds of people all over the country lose weight, feel amazing, get off medications and learn the healthy habits to help them keep the weight off after they lose it.  He is the real deal and Mike encourages all of us to attend and hear his story!  You won't want to miss it.
Sergeant at Arms - Clay Willey.
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.
