At Thursday’s Rotary Club meeting, Cindy Conley showed a couple of interesting films about Rotary. One was the Do’s and Don’ts of a meeting which was very hilarious. The other was about the Founding Members of the first Rotary Club in 1905. The first club was founded by Paul Harris in Chicago. It is still listed as Rotary Club#1. It was very interesting see what Chicago looked like over 100 years ago!
In club business, the club is sponsoring a golf team to participate in the Chamber Scholarship event to be held June 24. The club also talked about things that they could do to help the Lion’s Club in their July 1st Car Show. Plans are also being made to join the Lions in helping raise money for the White County Build program. Don Drone named Tom Logan as the phantom. Tom also won the honor of selecting the pink ball in the 50/50 drawing and was successful in winning the pot. Little Giant and Andy Williams served up a delicious meal of pork chops, scalloped potatoes and baked beans. The Carmi Rotary club meets at noon on Thursday at the First United Methodist Church. Anyone wishing to get involved is encouraged to come help Rotary with the many local projects and charities that are supported. You can follow us on Facebook.
