Round 2 w/ District Governor Randy Steinman

We are meeting for our next session with District Governor Randy Steinman on Friday, August 18th at noon at Gusto Coffee
The purpose of this meeting is to bring together our lists of "thought leaders". As a reminder, we started meeting with Randy in order to put together a plan of how to best work with the leaders in our community in order to learn about how they think Parkville Rotary can best serve our community.  This next meeting will be discussing our prospective lists and our next course of action. I am resharing Randy's handout here for convenience if you want to review.
We hope you can attend but understand schedules don't always allow. This does not mean your participation isn't welcome. If you have a list of people you would consider to be "thought leaders", please reach out to myself or Sandy Knoernschild and we will bring your list to our meeting on the 18th.  
As always, if you have any questions, please reach out, 
Have a great day.

Foundation HOOP-LA 2023

The Annual Foundation Dinner for 2023 is now Foundation HOOP-la!
There are two goals for this event:
1. To celebrate our championship spirit and the accomplishments of our clubs’ work in the community, and
2. To raise funds to support our future District and Global grants for our 57 clubs and Rotary’s global work.
Whether you attend each year, OR have never been to our celebration, click here for all the details about the event:
Please take these four key actions:
1. Save the date for Saturday, November 4 from 6-9pm.
2. Register for Foundation HOOP-la 2023. Registration will open soon.
3. Dig into your closet for your best pair of sneakers and dig out your favorite team jersey (basketball or otherwise). The event is very casual!
4. Consider donating an item for the silent auction and a bottle or two of wine or whiskey for the wine/whiskey pull. We’ll have both a silent and live auction during the night. Could you help by donating an auction item? Information on donating items will be sent out soon.
If you have any questions, please contact Frances Reddis, HOOP-la Committee Chair, at: or 816-853-3256.
I look forward to seeing you on November 4th!
