District Governor Visit - July 21st

You are invited to a meeting with District Governor Randy Steinman on July 21st at noon at Gusto Coffee. Randy has shared with our club a step by step guide on how to reach out to our community to engage with them on service projects that they feel would benefit our community. 
The purpose of the meeting is to discuss the plan and how to bring together "thought leaders" in our community.  We welcome your input and sincerely hope you will attend.     
RSVPing is not required, but very welcome so that we can monitor the amount of space we will need at Gusto.

Donations Needed to Assist Turkey Victims of the Earthquake

The Parkville Rotary Club is teaming up with the Istanbul, Turkey Rotary Club to provide relief to Turkish victims of the devastating earthquake and aftershocks that struck southern Turkey (and Syria) in February. An estimated 50,000 were killed, and over 1.9 million displaced, according to World Vision. Food, shelter, and health care are a struggle. More than 350,000 pregnant women, for example, are struggling to access health care and daily essentials, according the UN.
Funds raised in Missouri will benefit the Istanbul Rotary Club’s Project Hope, which is providing housing (523 tents and a 120-family “container camp”); food and hygiene (2,300 boxes of 11kg food packages); health care (a mobile hospital to replace one that was destroyed); and education (two mobile education centers) for survivors.
Donations in any amount are desperately needed, and deeply appreciated. Steven Youngblood has organized this fundraiser.
