News about Glenwood Rotary:
 
Since 2005, the Glenwood Rotary Club has delivered 2,550 dictionaries to Mills County third graders as a gift for each to use - either at school or at home - for years to come.  On September 18th 222 students at West, East Mills, and Fremont-Mills Elementary schools received a new dictionary from the Club.  In the photo above Rotarians Stan Sibley and Devin Embray present dictionaries to Ms. Brandie Yates and her students at West Elementary.

Educators see third grade as the dividing line between learning to read and reading to learn.  The Dictionary Project is the largest literacy project in Rotary. Its goal is to assist students in becoming good writers, active readers, creative thinkers, and resourceful learners by providing them with their own personal dictionary.  Since 1995, over 7,000 Rotary clubs have donated more than 15 million dictionaries to students in the United States and around the world.
On Thursday, September 13th, President Katelin Lusch (left) presented Rick Allely with his new member folder and Rotary badge and officially welcomed him to our club.  Rick is the Executive Director of the Mills County Economic Development Foundation.
                                                         
 
Saturday evening, July 28th, Governor Tom Cardwell presented Glenwood President Katelin Lusch with a plaque recognizing our club for placing 4th (out of 42!) in the District's Profile Program competition at the Annual District 5650 Conference.  The District uses the Profile program to measure the progress of the clubs in various Rotary activities and programs and to determine and recognize the District's "Top Ten Clubs."
 
On July 12th club members bid farewell to President-Elect Wendy Halbert at her last meeting before moving to the Cincinnati area with husband and fellow member John who had to depart for their new home a week earlier.  Club members wanted to thank them both for all they've done for the club and community by honoring them as new Paul Harris Fellows and donations of $1,000 in each of their names to Rotary International's The Rotary Foundation.  Past President Patrick Umberger presented Wendy with her Paul Harris Fellow certificate and pin.
