This Week's Program

Ron's guest this week is Alex Barker. He is with the Iowa Wolves and will talk about the Polio Plus game on February 1.

Thankful Brews For Stew

Last Sunday several members of Rotary Club of Indianola's Noon and PM Clubs met at The Groggy Dog to package the last two batches of Guinness Beef Stew for this season.  Todd will deliver the frozen containers to The Helping Hand as they have room to store them. With cold weather upon us the stew should be a welcome dietary change for those who receive it.

Flight To End Polio

Peter Teahen and John Ockenfels, District 6000 Past District Governor, are raising awareness for polio eradication by piloting a single engine aircraft all the way around the globe in 51 days!

Peter and John will take off from Cedar Rapids, Iowa on March 24, 2020 in a Piper Lance (single engine) airplane. Along the way, they will encourage support of ending polio forever throughout the world.

Both Peter and John are pilots, Rotarians, and members of the Fellowship of Flying Rotarians. Visit their website:

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.
