Presidential Message

President 2022-23

August 2022

We’ve all taken our own path to become a member of Rotary. Some of you joined because your father was a Rotarian. Some of us signed up because an employer tapped us on the shoulder and asked us to attend a meeting. Others became members only after a U.S. Supreme Court ruling made it possible. Yet each of us entered through one mechanism — an invitation.

An invitation that unlocks our imaginations and allows us to know that everything and anything is possible. Each one of us has that same opportunity — the honor to extend an invitation.

It is awe-inspiring to imagine how we can look out across our communities and identify our future leaders. It’s often tempting to attract people who are exactly like us. It’s a special form of ingenuity to consider how people who are seemingly very different can, in fact, share our values and have some of those same talents, just waiting to be unleashed.

It’s time for Rotary to take our next step in advancing Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) across our organization.

To celebrate its 100th anniversary, the Rotary Club of Indianola is the lead sponsor of a new disc golf course to be located at McCord Park in Indianola. The front 9 is being designed and built with Indianola Parks & Rec and area disc golf enthusiasts for beginning players to learn basic skills, while the back 9 will introduce timber challenges at an intermediate level to help players develop their skills.
 
Rotary Club of Indianola, which has been parking cars, Donors, Indianola Parks Friends, the Indianola Community Foundation, Warren County, and early sponsors have helped fund all but approximately $4,000 of the anticipated cost. There will be an entrance sign with a course layout map where $1,000 sponsors are recognized. There will also be signs at each tee box recognizing group and individual contributors.
 
Anyone who is interested in creating a new sport venue in Indianola that will assist individuals who are new to disc golf may help fund the course by:
o Sponsoring one hole for $750
o Be recognized within a group of 3 per hole for $250 each
 
A Sponsorship/Donation form is at https://givebutter.com/RC18
Thank you for your support.

Rotary Club of Indianola Established a Peace Garden at McCord Park

World Peace is one the pillars of Rotary International.

By carrying out service projects and supporting peace fellowships and scholarships, our members take action to address the underlying causes of conflict, including poverty, discrimination, ethnic tension, lack of access to education, and unequal distribution of resources.

As a humanitarian organization, peace is a cornerstone of our mission. We believe when people work to create peace in their communities, that change can have a global effect.

To honor that legacy, Rotary Club of Indianola has established a Peace Garden at McCord Park.  The Peace Garden is a place where individuals may visit to reflect on how they can become part of the solution in our own community.
