Sara Wiser, Executive Director of the Ankeny Service Center, was to guest at the Club's meeting on June 4, 2024 to receive a check from the club in the amount of $15,000.  The Ankeny Service Center was one of two paddle raisers at the Club's fundraiser, "Rotary Runs for the Roses" held on May 4th.  A total of $30,000 was raised which was split between the Ankeny Service Center and Starts Right Here.  In the picture are Club President Steve SchraderBachar, fundraiser chair Brian Tiernan, Sara Wiser and Ankeny Service Center Board members Kathy Sibbel and Tom Friedman. 
 The following thank you note from Sarah Wiser was received by Steve SchraderBachar;  
I just wanted to tell you how grateful the Ankeny Service Center if for your support.  When Kathy Sibbel handed me the check for $15,000, I was amazed.  Since I started as the Director at ASC, Rotary has been a constant committed supporter.  As a small nonprofit, support from groups like Rotary make a huge difference.  We appreciate you and everyone involved with Rotary.  Thank you!
