Stacy Schultz
Nonprofit Classification
Constituent Events Manager at Alzheimer's Association®
Stacy found us after her move from Cedar Falls IA. 
Stacy's classification is Non-Profit Leadership. She is working for the Alzheimer's Association and has worked the Visiting Nurse Association, Hospice of Southwest Iowa, and the National MS Society.
She has fantastic Rotary credentials having served as club president, she is a Rotary Leadership Institute (RLI) graduate, she has worked on her former district's Rotary Youth Leadership Academy (RYLA) committee, on their food drive committee, served as Purple Pinkie Project Chair, and received the Rotarian of the Year award in 2017.
Stacy has two kids; her daughter Shelby is 23 and son Sam is 21. Shelby is graduating from Iowa this may and Sam will finish at the Iowa School for the Deaf in May as well.
She writes that she loves to spend time with her family, enjoying refinishing furniture and spending time outside doing whatever! And she looks forward to getting to know us all better and having an impact in our community and world. 
As we near the 3 - 4 week mark of sheltering in place, we will check in via Zoom at noon Wednesday.
With respect to members, we are aware of the following circumstances:
Keep Sharon Coulter (and Ed) in mind as she recovers at home following orthopedic surgery.
Remember our front-line colleagues: Chief Lopez, JOCO FD; Chief Hadley, Mission PD; and their team members.
Dahnika's husband Hazen sees patients his practice and at KU.
Lisa Battani staffs the audiology clinic.
Jeff Jennings supervises various teams at Quest, as all scramble to meet needs.
Roger Beason in the office, overseeing the ministries at Countryside Christian Church, which includes the Child Care Development Center. The CDC is open in a limited capacity with about half to a third of the usual families, which provides space to meet the current requirements.
Greg Amos and his staff are trained to deal with contagious/infectious situations.
Ewan Shortess remains on the job with BNSF.

Wayne London has sent information by email to invite and help you participate in our Club meeting via Zoom web-conference. 
Please feel free to contact Joe Bast (sawdust928@gmail.com) or Barb Jones (revbejkcmo@gmail.com) if you have issues.
We are planning to have our first online Rotary meeting on Wednesday, April 8, at noon.  
Many members are already using ZOOM to work remotely, children or grandchildren are fluent!
If you missed the link given for a tutorial above, you can explore resources by clicking the blue ZOOM logo opening this article.
Here's how it will work:
1)  use your phone, ipad, tablet or computer.  Whatever you choose, you must have camera and microphone enabled.
2)  have it charged or plugged in,
3)  make sure your environment is quiet, and close doors to help with sound. 
4)  headphones/earphones with audio enabled will help you and others hear more clearly.
5)  download the program ahead of time if you like. You can find it in the App Store for iOS and the Google Play store for android. For windows, use your browser and go to the ZOOM website. You don't need to create an account, but you can!
6)  Wayne will send an email inviting you to join his meeting. Keep track of it so that you have the link.
7)  Click on Wayne's email link and join the meeting.
8)  When you join, you may see Wayne or rectangles showing everyone in the room. As we move through the process, we can help each other find the view you want. Here are pictures of both.

Club Meeting / Birthday Party

Rotarian Taylor Hess was slated to be "Rotarian of the Day" on July 22, 2020. Turns out, that is the day before he turns 95 years old. Needless to say, his program is covered! We'll have lunch and some cake, he'll share memories and stories, and if we're lucky, a lesson on how to tie a bow tie! See you then!
