District Governor Makes Official Vist to Ankeny

District Governor Jacque Andrew made her official visit to the Rotary Club of Ankeny on October 1st.   Her visit started with Nate Burnham giving her a tour of Ankeny and viewing several of the projects our club has completed or sponsored in recent years.   Upon returning to the Ankeny Golf & Country Club, she met with several members of our board of directors.  After her presentation, Sally Schroeder presented her with a gift from the club, an Isabel Bloom turkey.

Jacque presented several items for the board to consider including:

  • We should review our By-Laws and update them if necessary.

  • Our club should be able to qualify for a Presidential Citation.

  • This is the 25th year for women being admitted to Rotary.

  • We need to spend more time on retaining members.

  • We should consider a vocational activity such as having members talk about their professions at meetings.

  • The 2014 district conference will be May 2nd and 3rd  in Ames.

  • The Bunny Harper Golf Tournament will be on May 1st as part of the conference.

  • PETS will be March 7 & 8, 2014 in Rochester, Minnesota
