And cool things happening in South St. Joe, as well.  When I asked about the projects that they were most proud of, the board gave 17 items in shotgun style.  I couldn't write fast enough.  But, one that stood out was an Anti-Bullying project they did with elementary students.  If you want the information, contact Chad Higdon at  They also help the street department paint street name markers on the street.  That is a new one to me.  Singing Valentines were new recently.  And all the St. Joe clubs are working together to start a Rotaract Club at Missouri Western State University.    A tradition at the club, which was new to me, was that everybody walks among the whole club and shakes hands and greets each other right after the Pledge of Allegiance and prayer.  Nice tradition!

Two cool ideas today from Platte City Club President, Tom Rycezk, President-Elect Kevin Humiston, and Immediate Past President Craig Bennett.  After participating in Club Long Range Planning several years ago under then-President Kelly Parkhurst, the Platte City Rotary Club organized an Interact Club with 40 students at the chartering.  Today, these students help with many club activities including helping with a local food drive.  Rotary and Interact club members stand outside their local Price Chopper and handout lists of needed food to the people entering the store.  When people exit, they give the food they have just purchased to the Rotary Club for distribution from the food bank.  The picture shows the results of one food drive collection. 

Another great youth activity is Fifth Quarter.  During the fall, local groups sponsor a Fifth Quarter gathering for high school students after the football game.  Rotary takes a turn in sponsoring the event and providing the food.

ImageBig News from Independence Club President, Billie Ray Preston.  A New Fundraiser for 2014-15 will be a Mardi Gras Party and Dance in Independence.  They are hoping for 300 people at this fundraiser on Friday, February 13, 2015.  Money raised from the Mardis Gras event will help the club put on a Polio Rotary Day on May 23, 2015.
