Greetings East Polk Rotarians,
Thanks to Darrell for inviting Brad Miller to be our speaker last week.  It was great to have him with us again, but his report from his recent trip to the Ukraine was heartbreaking.  It seemed surreal to see his photos showing a beautiful day with devastation all around.  This was a dangerous trip, and we are happy he made it home safely.  Of course, that doesn't stop a passionate preacher because he is planning another trip.  We wish him and his team well and pray for their safety and for the people of Ukraine.
The Bowling Bash Committee has been working very hard to get all the promotional material and signup sites for silent auction items, sponsorships, and bowling teams on the website.  The Bowling Bash is coming up quickly, so we need to get busy selling raffle tickets, getting sponsors, signing up our teams and gathering silent auction items.  This is our major fundraiser of the year, so let's all get to work and make it a success.  
Also, remember that 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.  Participation helps us meet our Polio Plus financial goal.
