Excited about March 15 when Rushton Hurley will Zoom from his home in San Jose to our meeting in Cedar Falls. He will be talking about Artificial Intelligence and how it may change our lives.
Just for fun, I asked Chat GPT to write a poem about our Cedar Falls Kiwanis Rough Risers Service Club. (I entered our name and a link to our website.)
Here is the poem about the Cedar Falls Kiwanis Rough Risers club:
In Cedar Falls, there's a club,
With Kiwanis at their core,
They rise up early, before the sun,
They volunteer and fundraise,
The Rough Risers are a force,
So here's to the Cedar Falls Rough Risers,
In 1980, a group of Kiwanis Club members in Cedar Falls, Iowa came together with a unique idea. They wanted to form a subgroup within the Kiwanis Club that would focus specifically on hands-on service projects. They believed that by working together on projects, they could make a bigger impact on their community.
This group of men, who would later become known as the Cedar Falls Kiwanis Rough Risers, had a clear vision. They wanted to be a group that would tackle tough projects that other service groups might shy away from. They wanted to get their hands dirty and make a real difference in the lives of those around them.
The Rough Risers quickly gained a reputation for their hard work and dedication. They would meet early in the morning before work, and work together on projects until it was time to go to their day jobs. They built homes, cleaned up parks, and tutored children. They did whatever was needed to make a positive impact in the community. Women joined the group in the early 90s and immediately improved the club experience.
The club's efforts did not go unnoticed. The Rough Risers quickly became known as one of the most effective service groups in the area. They were a force to be reckoned with, and their impact was felt throughout Cedar Falls.
Today, more than 40 years later, the Cedar Falls Kiwanis Rough Risers are still going strong. They continue to be a shining example of what it means to be a community service group. They have inspired countless others to get involved and make a difference in their own communities. The Rough Risers may have started as a small group of men with a big idea, but their impact has been felt far and wide.
