This Week's Program

Ron has rescheduled his guest this week. Alex Barker is with the Iowa Wolves and will talk about the Polio Plus game on February 1.

Rotary +1

Every week during the Month of February - we are asking you to bring your +1 to Rotary by inviting a friend, colleague or business person to a meeting, and sharing with them why Rotary is important to you.

Iowa Wolves Raise Funds

Des Moines area Rotary clubs have partnered with the Iowa Wolves Basketball team to help raise funds for the eradication of Polio since 2008! Iowa Wolves tickets are $20 with $10 dollars of each ticket going directly to Polio Eradication.

The Iowa Wolves game is Saturday, February 1 at 7 PM at Wells Fargo Arena. Come and enjoy a fun night of basketball and ROTARY fellowship! Contact Ron Heidemann or Ed Arnold

2020-21 Presidential Theme

Rotary International President-elect Holger Knaack is encouraging Rotarians to seize the many opportunities Rotary offers to enrich their lives and the communities they serve.

Knaack, a member of the Rotary Club of Herzogtum Lauenburg-Mölln, Germany, revealed the 2020-21 presidential theme, "Rotary Opens Opportunities", to incoming district governors at the Rotary International Assembly in San Diego, California, USA, on 20 January.

Rotary isn’t just a club for people to join, but rather “an invitation to endless opportunities,” said Knaack, who becomes president on 1 July. He emphasized that Rotary creates pathways for members to improve their lives and the lives of those they help through service projects.

We will capture this moment to grow Rotary, making it stronger, more adaptable, and even more aligned with our core values.

Greater Des Moines Age-Friendly Initiative is committed to having Central Iowa become an officially
recognized Age-Friendly Region. I believe that our fellow Rotarians will be very interested in learning about
the Age-Friendly Community work and how building a more Livable community will be beneficial for all who
live, work and recreate in Indianola and throughout Greater Des Moines.
