The Shawnee Mission Rotary Club will host the beer garden at the Mission Summer Family Picnic Saturday, July 10 from 6:00-10:00 p.m. This is an annual event with a strong following, but this will be the first year that the event will include a beer garden. The event was cancelled in 2020 so people should be excited to be back!

The club will be using the picnic as a "Pints for Polio" event, raising funds for PolioPlus, Rotary's global campaign to end Polio around the world. Polio is still present in just three countries in the world - after once having been an ever-present threat in every part of the world. We are *THIS CLOSE* to ending it once and for all.

Please let Emily know if you are interested in volunteering at the sales counter! Thank you!

*The club will also host the beer counter at the Mission Market on Thursday, August 5.

Following the Adopt-A-Street litter pick-up this Thursday, join your fellow Rotarians at the opening night of the 2021 Mission Market season! This is the market's 7th season. They're back this year "turning up the volume" after a muted season in 2020. The food trucks, beer garden and live music are back, with the best line-up of vendors ever. Join for some beer, music, food and shopping for as long as you like. The market hours are 4:30-8 p.m. This will also be a chance to preview the beer garden set-up in advance of the club hosting the beer garden on August 5! See you there! (And, the faster the litter is cleaned up, the sooner the fun starts, so please, everyone chip in on Lamar Avenue ahead of the market!)
This year, Growing Future Early Education Center is hosting a "Harvesting Hope" fundraiser at Shawnee Mission Theatre in the Park. There will be live music, a craft market, dinner, beer, wine, games, a raffle, and more. There are opportunities for volunteer groups to help out at the event. We are targeting the 5:00-7:30 p.m. shift. This will be hosting the games, bar, running ice, selling tickets, etc.
I know some schedules will change between now and then, but they are asking for names of volunteers now. If you think you will be interested in volunteering, please let Emily Randel know and she will add your name to our volunteer form.
The Club was back out to Growing Futures Early Education Center on Saturday to plant flowers in the boxes that line their playground and parking areas. It is a whole variety of petunias this year. Special thanks to club member Jeff Jennings for purchasing the flowers from Westlake Hardware. Jeff also arrived early and had the flowers all distributed and in place, with the soil prepared before the rest of the volunteers even arrived! Thanks to Wayne and Peggy London for coming back out with mulch the next weekend. Club members will manage the watering through the season on a rotating basis. If you'd like to take a watering shift, just let Emily know! 
When the club went out to Growing Futures Early Education Center on Saturday, May 1 to plant flowers, Kathy McLellan, Volunteer and Development Associate (and friend to the club and fellow flower planter!) brought the vision screening device out to show us. This is the screener that we purchased last year with District Grant funds as well as individual donations and club funds. The screener will allow flexible screening for every child in Growing Futures care - ages 0 to 5. The screener replaces the need for scheduling with an outside provider, and makes home visit screenings possible. It was fun to see. Thanks to all who contributed to this effort.
