Our Speakers this Week are Annie Presley and Christy Howard, Authors of the "Read This" books. 
READ THIS…™ is an original series of guided journals. Guided journals created by Annie Presley and Christy Howard help users tell their story. They are organized and personal to you. The guided journals ask important and thought provoking questions that you would want those near and dear to you to know, and its done in a fun, upbeat style. The questions help you capture important life organizing information, cherished memories and helps your loved ones celebrate (and sometimes find) your life's treasures!
Annie Presley is a political strategist who offers practical advice, delivered irreverently!

Christy Howard is a former lawyer and non-profit executive, and a lover of national parks.  She brings her perspective to you with humor.

Thank you to everyone who attended one of our Rotary Lunch & Learn Opportunities last week at Sheffield Place and the Greater Kansas City Community Foundation. Both were well attended and we've heard positive feedback! If you would be interested in hosting a Lunch & Learn in the Fall, please let us know!
People of Rotary
We are happy to announce the launching of “People of Rotary” on Facebook.
With the help of David King, and possibly more people who enjoy writing, we will be posting articles periodically that will be spotlighting and telling the story of the members of our Club.
Our first “People of Rotary” feature is on Denny Bolte - you can read it at this link and you do not need a Facebook account!
Youth Camp Update
Summer Camp 2017
Rotaract is sponsoring Camp RISE this week!  Katie and her crew of volunteers are creating wonderful memories with 40 homeless children ages 5-14.  Swimming, games, tree climbing, fresh fruit and s'mores have made a lasting impression on these children.  When asked what he wanted to do when he grew up, one camper responded "This, I want to work at a camp!".

Rotary Leadership Institute
Here’s a unique Rotary Leadership Institute opportunity for District 6040 Rotarians! 
For the first time, Part I of the three-part RLI course will be offered in two different locations on July 29:  In Kirksville (at the Chamber of Commerce offices) and in Liberty (at Second Baptist Church). 
RLI seeks to identify those Rotarians who appear to have the potential for future club leadership (not necessarily as club presidents) and provide a quality education in Rotary knowledge and leadership skills so important in voluntary organizations.
This is a great chance for you to get started in the Rotary Leadership Institute without making the trek to Chillicothe. Get started on joining the 43 District Rotarians who have graduated from RLI and are leading their clubs and making them stronger than ever. 
If you’re interested in club (or District) leadership, RLI is for you!  Register today at  The cost is $50 per session; AND CLUB 13 WILL COVER YOUR COST!  Don’t miss this great leadership opportunity!  Questions?  Contact Jerry Venters, District RLI Coordinator, at
