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 third “People of Rotary” feature is on Christy Chester - you can read it at this link and you do not need a Facebook account! 

Members, click here to log in to Clubrunner.

Rotary Bowling League
Call for bowlers!
Hey Rotarians,
Hope you're all having a great summer, but it's time to start thinking about the upcoming bowling season.

We begin on Wednesday, Sept. 6 and end in mid-April. As last year, each week we'll bowl three games, 4:30 to 6:30 Wednesdays at Ward Parkway Lanes, 89th and State Line. We'll bowl for 28 weeks with time off for holidays. As usual, we'll compete against the St. Louis League in April, and celebrate in May at our Bowling Awards Banquet.
It’s a great way to get acquainted with your fellow Rotarians – from our club and others – and earn Tyro points! And it’s always great fun!
You do NOT have to be a good bowler. We use the handicap system so it’s a level playing field. You don’t have to have the equipment. Balls and shoes can be rented at the alley.
• Weekly pay-as-you-go: $15 per week (Total: $15 x 28 = $420)
• Pay for entire year up front: $400
• One-time, up-front league fee: $65
To sign up, email or call Jane Lee, League president: 816-876-9839 / 816-333-0403
Or use the sign-up sheet we’ll have available at meetings. Please let us know if you’d like to join the league by Aug. 11. Don’t miss out on this 100-year-plus Club 13 tradition!
If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.
Jane Lee,
League Prez
