Our Rotary on the Road in October was a visit to Hillcrest Transitional Housing. We toured the youth building in Kansas City, Kansas and made great connections. This organization is a leader in solving homelessness in the KC Metro. Their process provides full support in a structured environment that teaches self-sufficiency for achieving goals of permanent housing, employment, education, money management and wellbeing.
 
One key need we identified: In order to save funds, the residents in the program are encouraged to pack their lunches as opposed to getting fast food while they're out working or at school. Hillcrest could use soft-sided lunch bags and ice packs and tumblers/water bottles for the residents. If you are interested in donating any of those items that you have that are in good condition, or can purchase any of those items new, we'd like to gather a few to give to Hillcrest by the end of the month. They currently have need for 8-10, but could use more for future residents if we'd like to do more! Thanks in advance!
 
Once again, the Shawnee Mission Rotary beer garden was a hit! Selling drinks at the Mission Family Picnic at Broadmoor Park, the club raised funds for Pints for Polio, just in time for World Polio Day on October 24. Following the club's first outing with a beverage tent at the Mission Market in August, this was an improved experience with more sales, wine added to the menu by popular demand, and more good times and community engagement! Thanks to everyone who volunteered!
 
We're getting ready to bring the party again - this time at the Mission Family Picnic. This is the event rescheduled from July. We'll be hosting the beer garden, raising money for Pints for Polio.
 
Please take a slot to volunteer if you can make it at the SignUp Genius online sign-up here: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/60b094aabad2ea6fb6-mission2
 
Mission Family Picnic
Broadmoor Park - 5701 Broadmoor St.
Saturday, October 9, 5-8 p.m., with some set-up and tear-down time as well. You don't have to stay for the whole time by any means. 
 
It's really a fun event. There will be live music, and kids activities, and if the wind cooperates, fireworks. 
 
Thanks so much!

Rotary on the Road! For the 1st Wednesday in October, we're back on the road. This time, we'll be hosted by Hillcrest Transitional Housing. They presented a program to our club several years ago. They are a leader in the region working to end homelessness with a self-sufficiency model that provides wrap-around services for a 90-day period for adults and families. They have housing in Overland Park and Kansas City, Kansas. We'll meet at their youth building Wednesday, October 6 at noon. They will share about their services and also a couple of ways our club could get involved if we'd like to.
 
3101 Minnesota Ave.
Kansas City, KS 66102
 
The main door faces the corner of Minnesota and 31st Street. There is parking behind the building.
We had a great night at the Mission Market August 5! We had nine volunteers, sold 132 beers, raised an additional $60 in donations, saw some old friends, met some new friends and we think we might have met our newest member! (Stay tuned!) It was a perfect summer night with great visibility for the club, a much needed chance for club members to catch up and we raised some great funds for the fight against polio! Count it as a win!
