Last week Erin Cohrs and Alan Stanek served as Greeters. Tracy Rowland gave the invocation. We had several announcements and presentations.   Monique Devillier introduced Feroz Mohmand who shared his experiences as refugee from Afghanistan and how he ended up in Nebraska.   The RISK bag was at $50 and Curt Peters won a free lunch.  
 
Last week Alice Schumaker introduced us to new member Bob Bosco.  Bob is an Associate Professor Emeritus at Creighton University. He has taught painting, drawing, and color theory there since 1976.
 
An award-winning artist, Bob has participated in seventy (70) exhibitions nationally and regionally. He has collaborated with choreographers, dancers and musicians in several public art venues and spent summers in personal artistic production in Florence, Italy and Canada.
 
Research for his latest artistic mission has taken him to Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health, Omega Wellness Center, and Esalen Institute.
This ten year project resulted in:
- a series of forty-eight (48) paintings on yoga
- a recent one person exhibit at the 1516 Gallery in Omaha’s Old Market
- as well as a book entitled ‘A Painter’s Yoga Journey’, available on Amazon.
­
 All proceeds are dedicated to the education and feeding of children in refugee camps throughout the world, through ‘Adopt A Future’.
 
Besides being an artist and a yogi, Bob also pursues:  creative writing, piano, hand drums, singing, kayaking and book groups.  Welcome, Bob!
Last week , Kathryn Schubert recognized Nate Schwalb as a Paul Harris Fellow +7 for his donations of $8000 to the Intl. Rotary Foundation. Thank you and congratulations! 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Congratulations to our 100%ers who were recognized by Julie Livingston last week! Herb Hartman 10 years, Rose Mary Hefley- 14, and Lou Smetana- 47 YEARS!
 
 
 
Last week Cindy Kinsler made good on her bet with Kevin Welsh donating $1000 to his Rotary Foundation account since the Hawkeyes beat the Huskers.   Several Rotarians stepped up in a revenge bet for next year hoping to make Kevin pay in 2020. Thank you all for being good sports and supporting the Rotary Foundation! 
 
Our goal is for 100% of our members to make a donation to the Rotary Foundation this year. The easiest way is to go to the rotary website at myrotary.org and create an account to give online.  A $100 donation makes you a 19-20 Sustaining Member. Cumulative donations of $1000 make you a Paul Harris Fellow.
 
The Rotary Foundation money we give comes back to us in the form of District and Global grants allowing to us to support local projects like the homeless foot clinic, meal packaging for local food pantries as well as international projects such as the girls' school in Afghanistan and the hospital in Togo. 
 
You can also bring a check made out to the Rotary Foundation to the meeting on Thursday and Jennifer will send it in for you. All first-time donors making a $100 donation will have it matched by the club.
