IC Noon Rotary Stories
Our Meeting was called to order by President Mike McKay
President Mike announced that we need a few volunteers to help take minutes at our weekly meetings.
Join the team of note takers, Rtns. Shawn Reineke, Devin van Holtjein and Sara Sedacek for our weekly meetings. This offers a great way to become engaged in our club! Please contact Rtn. Shawn Reineke or Club
President Mike McKay for more information.
President Mike acknowledged that today is International Women’s Day and extends his Congratulations!
Rtn. Dorothy Paul announced the Night of 1,000 Dinners Iowa City held at Johnson Robert A Lee Community Rec Center was a wonderful event that took place Wednesday, March 7th.
Over 65million people have fled their homes and risked their lives in search of refuge. Most are children, but less than half have access to education. The United Nations Association of the United States of America, in tandem with the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) and its fundraising arm USA for UNHCR, is working to prevent a lost generation by giving refugee children the education they need to build a better future. Our Club helped to sponsor refugee women’s education. A panel of refugees living in Iowa City spoke about their first-hand experiences at the Kakuma Camp in Kenya, and refugee education. 
Rtn. Christina Kimerle announced the Fore the Family Golf Tournament. In just 16 years, Fore the Families of RMHC-EIWI has raised more than $750,000 for Ronald McDonald House Charities of Eastern Iowa & Western Illinois and is co-sponsored by our Iowa City Thursday Noon Rotary Club.
1 golfer sign up pays for 2 families to stay at the Ronald McDonald House for 1 night. Contact Rtn. Katharine Marshall at to get signed up or volunteer to help!  If you are interested in sponsoring a golfer, contact Rtn. Verne Folkmann.
  • Date: June 4, 2018
  • Event held at Finkbine Golf Course located at: 1380 Melrose Ave in Iowa City
  • Registration capped at 144 golfers
  • $150.00/golfer, $600.00/team

Rtn. Ryan Bell and Rtn. Katharine Marshall are leading the charge for our club for the upcoming Earth Day – Tree Planting Initiative and are asking for each member to donate to the cause. Our club needs to raise $2500 to cover our share of tree planting in the area. One or both of them will be collecting donations for the next
several weeks after meetings. Please contact Katharine at
or Ryan at for more about the upcoming Earth Day – Tree Planting Initiative.  Each $10+ donation is entered into a drawing for a $50 Bread Garden gift card. Ryan is excited to report that $240 was raised after our meeting today and brought on both President McKay's business and Past President Usha's non-profit as corporate sponsors! Rtn. Janice Baldes was the winner of the $50 gift card to Bread Garden.
Rtn. Jon Brown announced the New Member Committee is bringing their new energy into new projects. They are working with other Rotary Clubs to have a presense in 2 upcoming parades, The Coralville 4th of July Parade and the University of Iowa’s Homecoming Parade. All members are encouraged to participate.
