Happy Bucks:
Susan Smith had a Happy & Sad buck. Sad for large wild fire recently when she visited up north at her cabin in Waushara county in the sand country. Homes along with a couple of Amish farms were damaged. Her Happy buck is for the rain.

Bob: happy for rain.

Shawn: happy for her daughter in Colombia Jenna getting her tour visa extended. Sad: that she isn’t coming home early.

Mark: happy for rain. Secondly things are coming together for his RAGBRAI (Annual Great Bicycle Ride Across Iowa) event in Iowa.

Mark Rooney’s family farm house for gathering at 12:00 and tour of the Air BnB business. Beverages and deserts will be provided, bring your own sandwich. Sarah Best will be there to update the Air BnB which will be hosting its first guests Aug. 4th.

Membership: Susan’s group is starting to meet and are working on a small packet to extend to people who would be good members, as well as a packet for new members. Cards to fill out info on possible members were handed out. Bob: since we are a club and not a business outreach is personal and needs to be done in-person, rather than recruiting for a business.

Judy: Our exchange student will be arriving 8/9/23 she will be arriving sometime around 12.

Joey Sherven shared his presentation about his home life to share during his time as an exchange student in Brazil. He hopes to employ the english tutoring skills he honed working with younger students in our school district.

We received a Thank You card from Payton Almquist, one of our scholarship recipients and student rotarians.
