News about Glenwood Rotary:
 
The Glenwood Rotary Club once again brought the Culpepper and Merriweather circus into town for two well-attended performances.  Proceeds from the circus, like all of our fundraisers, are used to support community programs and causes.  Thanks to all our sponsors who purchased tickets in advance and to all those who attended.  Thanks, too, to our partners -  American Legion Harvey Rimel Post, Veterans Administration, Mills County Public Health, Bloom Senior Center, Mills County Storehouse, Elementary School Counselors, and the Indian Creek Antique Machinery Club.  Our next fundraiser will be our annual spaghetti dinner, set for November 14th at the high school.
     
 
     District 5650 Governor Dr. Tom Cardwell, presented President-Elect Wendy Halbert with Rotary International President Ian Riseley’s banner during his visit on August 17th.  Tom was accompanied by Assistant District Governor Steve Chamley of the Council Bluffs Noon Club.  District 5650 covers Eastern Nebraska and Southwestern Iowa with a total of 43 Rotary Clubs and over 2,000 members.  Dr. Cardwell and his wife Jenny (also a Rotarian) are members of the Lincoln South Rotary Club.  Tom is the newly retired Dean of Student Engagement at Southeast Community College and also a licensed psychologist.
     Tom's goals for 2017-18 include asking each District Rotarian to plant a tree this coming year, increasing District membership among women and people under 40 by at least 10%, and helping District members to work together side by side across geographical, religious, political and cultural divides to build stronger communities that help families thrive.
 
District Governor Gary Bren presented President-Elect Wendy Halbert with two significant awards at the recent District 5650 Conference on Saturday evening, August 12th.  In the left picture our club was recognized for placing 10th (out of 43) in the Top Ten Clubs of District 5650 competition.  On the right, our club placed first in conference attendance for small clubs and will receive $1,000 to apply toward a club project of our choice.
Glenwood Rotary Club members welcome Joel Alejandro Ibanez Soto at Eppley Airfield on Sunday, August 6th after an almost 24-hour journey from his home in Tarija, Bolivia.  Rotarians left to right behind Joel are Erin Jones, Patrick Umberger, Wendy Halbert, John Halbert, Stan Sibley, Bill Magnuson, Dick Lincoln, and Rob Simmon.  Joel will be living with sponsors Wendy and John during his first semester at Glenwood Community High School.
