Planning for
    Your Loved Ones
2018-2019 President-Elect Kimberly Fricke ran her first meeting of the year.  Kimberly was accompanied to our meeting by her niece Megan. Great way to get our youth involved in service.
Since lunch delivery was slightly late, we had announcements. Upcoming events of interest are as follows.   (For District Events see  Consider attending some of the district events to expand your knowledge about Rotary and meet Rotarians from other clubs.
  • District Membership Workshop - July 22nd
  • Rotary at the River Cats benefiting Polio Plus - July 30th
  • Lincoln Community Blood Drive - August 18th; get it on your calendar and invite your friends.  Bill Cook said he could use some help.
  • District Foundation Seminar - August 19th
  • District Family Picnic at Discovery Park - August 27th
  • 5th Thursday Club Meeting at Turkey Creek - for families and guests - being planned
Joann described her awesome week as a counselor at the Rotary Youth Leadership Awards camp at Grizzly Creek Ranch in Portola.  RYLA is for next year’s High School seniors and tomorrow’s leaders with attendance at Camp RYLA by scholarship only. We selected and funded three LHS students and sent two more funded by other Rotary Clubs.  Thank you Joann.
Kimberly opened a special Club meeting and made a motion (that was seconded) to have another Cow Chip Bingo fundraiser - this time to benefit McBean Park improvements.  It was voted by members in attendance that we proceed.  Paul Parks will chair the event.  It was tentatively planned that the event be in late October. More to follow.
Our speaker was Kim McCue, a Lincoln Chamber Ambassador who is with Lincoln Funeral Home. She was accompanied by Chuck Armour from Digity Health, the operator of funeral homes thoughout the USA.  She described planning for the death of your loved ones (or for yourself) - not something we like to think about but something that should be put in place ahead of time rather than left to happenstance.   
Remember that next week is a Club Assembly meeting. Please plan on attending to provide your input and comments on the plans that President Dan Johnson and the Board have put together for the 2017-2018 Rotary year.
