“Northwest takes the Trophy”
For the fifth year in a row, Rotary Club of Northwest Des Moines sold more tickets per member than any other club in the Des Moines Area. This year, thanks to the initiative of Polio Plus Iowa Energy Committee members, Frank Hayer (Waukee), Mike Thibodeau (West Polk), Vernette Riley (Perry), Drew Engebrecht (Greater Des Moines), Sharon Jasa (Boone), and Jacque Andrew (Jefferson), a formal competition among the clubs was initiated. This writer is more than a little embarrassed, but also a little proud that the “Arnold Cup” will be a traveling trophy presented to the Club selling the most tickets per member. Results for 2013 were; Waukee – 2.36, East Polk – 2.63, West Polk – 5.33, and Northwest – 8.05 tickets per member. Congratulations Northwest! More importantly, the event raised over $9,000, which will provide immunizations for approximately 15,000 children.
