District Governor John Ockenfels Introduces Operation Warm: More than a Coat

A video message from DG John Ockenfels was shown to promote his district-wide initiative Operation Warm: More than a coat.  By October 3rd, DG John’s goal is to raise enough money to purchase 4000 coats or one new coat per District 6000 member. If everyone donates $16.50, there will be 4000+ coats distributed in the district. A per capita donation of $19.00 will buy over 5000 new coats.  See http://www.rotary6000.org for more information.

Sean O'Harrow Updates Rotarians on the University of Iowa Museum of Art

H.D. Hoover introduced Sean O’Harrow, Executive Director of the University of Iowa Museum of Art.  O’Harrow provided Rotarians with an overview of the beginnings of the art curriculum at Iowa, now over a 100 years ago, and of the museum.  He shared that the flood of 2008 provided the opportunity to create a new model for the Museum by taking the art to towns in Iowa.  Several museums have or will feature pieces from the U of I collection and there are programs in 48 Iowa communities.  This model has resulted in an increase from about 40,000 visitors a year before the flood to 148,000 viewers last year of pieces from the collection. He closed with a report on the Jackson Pollock Mural project undertaken by the Getty.  It is now being shown in Sioux City and will begin a worldwide tour in 2015.  The target date for a new museum is 2018.

H.D. Hoover introduced Visiting Rotarians Myrene Hoover (IC A.M.
