Meeting Minutes from Prez Jim - 3/9/11

We certainly had a room full today!

There were 25/26 attending from the Rough Risers, 4 from Circle "K" and 3 from the Waterloo Easy Risers Club.

A welcome back to Ned and Leigh.

The buffet was exceptionally good - this feature has been a real plus to our meetings.

The Easy Risers had tickets available for their pancake breakfast on the 26th. Their event is from 6:30 to 11:00 at the Central Christian Church -3475 Kimball. I would assume most Rough Risers will be there at 6:30 since we are used to that hour.

They are also very interested in working with us on the Air Show Kettle Corn project.

Happy anniversary to the Schillings on their anniversary (9th).

Steve indicated the b-calm units had been delivered. We will be getting a report back sometime in late May or early June.

Jerry reported we were at the $ 15,000 mark in sponsorships. Work is continuing on a proposal for the Air Show.

Phil passed out the 2011 directory. It looks great! Thanks to Cindy, Phil and the PR Committee on an excellent job.

Marv has been working with Habitat on updating a home. Please mark your calendar for April 7, 8 and 9 for the roofing portion and May 13 and 14 for the siding portion.

Steve presented samples of shirts with the objective of taking orders as well as picking the color. The color chosen by a large majority was blue. If you have not already done so please email Steve with your shirt size, as we need to get the order in so as to lock in a very good price. Steve's email is

Our program was presented by Kathy Berns/DHS Transition Planning Specialist and Janessa Lee a UNI Student who was in the foster program.

Our board will consider preparing finals week care packages for the UNI students who were in foster care. This may be a project we can do jointly with Circle "K".

We have an exciting line up of programs for the rest of March: 16th Christine Carpenter with the Healthy Cedar Valley Coalition 23rd, Wendy Knapp with Goodwill 30th Brittney Betzer with Team TLC (Brittney is a UNI Presidential Scholar)

Our greeter next week is Jeff Wollum.

One of the real assets of the Rough Risers is that so many pitch in so the work is evenly distributed. This strength will be much needed as we move into April and beyond.

Have your best week ever!!
