Leadership Lincoln, and the
    Conscious/Non-Conscious Mind
We hosted the Lincoln Chamber of Commerce Leadership Lincoln class, showing them what THE service club of Lincoln is all about.  After our lunch, they all introduced themselves and participated in the fun and project/ service announcements of our meeting. 
Several key announcements were made:
  • Pete Walker reported that we raised $3,700 to support Polio Plus as a result of donations and participation in the Dueling Dogs event on World Polio Day October 24th.   Rotary District 5180 matched this followed by a 2 for 1 match by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
  • Dan Johnson announced that Nite at the Races was very successful, raising about $16,000.  Best ever.
  • Harriet Garland announced that the Senior Center would be opening soon and that there would be further opportunities to support this endeavor initiated by our Club.
  • David Cesio announced the upcoming Salt Mine food distribution events.  
Past president and 30-year Rotarian Carol Smith received her Blue Badge.  Welcome back Carol.
Our speaker was Gary Yeatts, Gary has his own business that coaches businesses by inspiring excellence in leadership and by showing how ones thoughts, words, beliefs and intentions create or repel business. (See his website.) It was a very interesting presentation that centered on how our mind works. About 90% of what we do is controlled by our non-conscious mind. 
Following the meeting, Dan Johnson and David Cesio delivered the 23 turkeys funded by our members' donations to the annual Firefighters Thanksgiving Turkey Drive.
