Thank you - Thank you to everyone that was involved with our strategic planning, and thank you to all because we will be implementing the plan together.
Looking back at our Stategic Plan from 2014, not a lot has changed.   These are our Values:
Service - to promote and be engaged in serving others locally, nationally and internationally.
Inclusivity - to welcome and support people and projects reflecting global diversity.
Knowledge - to foster an environment that values global awareness and well informed people.                     
Generosity - to generate and invest time, talent and financial resources.
Leadership - to encourage and cultivate leadership in our club and community.
Friendship - to create an atmosphere of fun and friendship.
Integrity - to be respected, accountable and trusted, as reflected in our four way test.
This Week's Meeting

There will be no meeting this week.  We will be meal packing at Meals from the Heart from 11:45 to 1:00.


Also, no meeting Thursday, November 26th.  Happy Thanksgiving to one and all!!!

Last Week's Meeting

Looking for a good movie to watch as the snow falls?  I encourage you to watch "Clouds", the movie inspired by Stillwater teen Zach Sobiech.  Many of you know Zach's story and his inspiring message.   You can stream "Clouds" on Disney+.  It costs $8 to purchase one month of streaming - which is much less than going to the movie theater (when we went to movie theaters).


Last week we heard, Sammy Brown, a friend of Zach Sobiech, and talked about her experience with the filming of Clouds, now out on Disney+.  The "real life" Sammy will be giving us a behind-the-scenes look at filming and how Zach's music has impacted the world.


Check out the trailer! We hope you can join us.


Meals from the Heart
We still need volunteers!
On November 19th, in place of our regular meeting. We will be participating in a service project.  We will be doing meal packing at Meals from the Heart, the same group that had community meal packing at the new fire hall last year that some of us participated in. 
We need 6-8 people to pack meals from 11:45am - 1 pm on the 19th. 
If you don't want to participate in person, luckily we have an option for all.  You can participate by donating funds to cover the cost of the food.  Our club needs to raise $1,500.00 to fund the meal packing event. Please give if you are able. 
There is a link to a sign up below.
