 Wednesday, February 3 - Business Meeting

Our club members get together to discuss what's happening now and make plans for the future.  We talk about projects, kettle corn, finances, marketing, and a plethora of potential possibilities  

February 10 - Let's Talk with Mayor Rob - Mayor Rob Green, Cedar Falls.

Mayor Green is a former US Coast Guard officer and has lived in Cedar Falls since 2004. He was President of the Overman Park Neighborhood Association for several years, then was elected to the City Council in 2017. He has served as Mayor since January 2020. He holds a degree in government/public policy from the U.S. Coast Guard Academy, and an M.A. in Instructional Technology from UNI. He will discuss current issues facing Cedar Falls.

February 17 -
 What's Ahead with the New Cedar Falls High School? Brian Sanderman, Lead Architect, Invision Architecture. 
The Cedar Falls School Board recently accepted bids for the new school, which fortunately came in well under expectations. The Board has also chosen to add a swimming pool to replace the aging pools at Holmes and Peet Junior Highs, to be financed with funds from the city, the school district, and private fundraising. Sanderman, who is also a member of the Waterloo Kiwanis Club, will tell us about the forward-looking features of the new school, including adjustments made after experiencing a pandemic.

Wednesday, February 24 - What's Up with UNI Women's Volleyball?  Bobbi Peterson, Head Coach, UNI Women's Volleyball. Coach Petersen is the coach of the UNI
volleyball team but she was one of the best to ever play at UNI and her name is still among the leaders in several statistical categories. She is in her 21st year as our head coach, and on February 7th became the all-time winningest coach in the Missouri Valley Conference, with her 510th career win.  Volleyball is normally a fall sport but because of the pandemic, it was moved to spring. That move also cost the team several seniors who graduated early, so Coach Petersen this spring has been bringing along an extremely young team. She will tell the Rough Risers about the challenges and potential of this team.
