Greetings from Florida,
Chris will be conducting the meeting tomorrow as I am out of town.
Mike Hamilton is Rotarian of the Day.  He has invited Brett Rickabaugh and Ryan Andersen to review and bring us up to date on this year's plans for the Iowa Technology Exposition to be held Friday, May 12, 2023, at Southeast Polk High School.  Ryan has sent out invitations for judges to sign up, so please check your email and complete the form.  This is a special opportunity to view and judge the great projects presented by students from all over the state.
Tickets are available online for the Iowa Wolves Polio Plus night, February 4, at 7 p.m. at Wells Fargo Arena.  You can go to to purchase your own.  If you are planning to donate them, please let Marie know.  She will be purchasing those in a block to give to members of the Interact Club.
