This Week's Program

This week we plan to discuss the Rotary Centennial Project. One suggestion has been to create "100 Stories".

Do you, or a past member, have a significant story about Rotary?  Why did you join?  What did you or the club do that made an impact on your life?

We would like individuals to write their story down and submit to Todd or Terry.  The stories will be collected, along with submitted pictures, and organized, with the hope of publishing a digital story book about Rotary Club of Indianola's 100 years.

Tune in this Friday to hear some suggestions and possibly offer your own ideas.


"Daily Connections"

Sinikka is hosting a daily call that has been really meaningful for the participants.  It’s free and open so you can join one day and not the next, or drop in when your schedule permits.

If you or someone you know needs a bright spot during the workday, she invites you to join in their free daily call.

Daily Connections” weekdays at 1:15 CST through at least Friday, May 1. 

We’re hitting on relevant, timely topics, with a chance to connect with others virtually and engage in meaningful discussion on a regular schedule.

Here’s the blog link where you’ll find recaps each day, plus the link to the meeting itself

Use this link every day to join the call:

Ev's guest on March 20th 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.
