BE AT THE BAND SHELL ON SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 12 AT 8:00 AM TO GET YOUR ASSIGNMENT - If you haven't "signed up" yet it easy.  Just email Ben or respond to this email with your name and any helpers you can bring.  We will be SOCIALLY DISTANCING and/or wearing masks (your preference).

Main Street beverage has covered ice. 
 
We have a few elderly homes that need cleaned up! 
 
Afterwards, Little Livestock Company and Potter Funeral Chapel are supplementing the Frontier Cinema for up to 200 people to get a $2.50 voucher to attend any Tuesday showing of a movie or to apply on the ticket cost for any other night.  Thank you to Roy Dransfield of the Cinema who is also donating funds!
 
This is a huge endeavor and we ALL are needed to make it a success!  See you SATURDAY at 8 AM!
 

 
PINS 4 POLIO is scheduled for Saturday, October 24 - WORLD POLIO DAY!  Plans are underway so make YOUR PLANS to come out and support the cause of eradicating polio from the world!   We are "this close" and I can't help but think of District Governor Ben Nelson's remarks that there are kids in the world that were "this close" to having the vaccine...it's a lot to think about.  They will be crippled for life.
 
Rotary has been at the forefront of eradicating the world of Polio for a number of  years now.  Let's do our part!  Emmett Rotary Proud!!!
 
THANK YOU to our Pins 4 Polio Volunteers for 2020!

Kathy Buck - Flyers/Forms
??? - Silent Auction  (someone to actually set up and run the silent auction - training provided!)
 
and our FEARLESS LEADER - Daniel Brice!!!

Please contact Daniel or Kathy if you want to help...especially if you want to BOWL!!!   Who will bowl a perfect 300 this year?  John did in 2018 and Kathy repeated it in 2019.  Of course, it's a 7 pin, no tap contest so you only have to knock down 7 pins with your first ball all ten frames and you get that perfect score!!! YOU CAN DO IT TOO!
 
The form will be sent to all Rotarians in a separate email so watch for it...fill it out...and return it to Nancy, Kathy or to KT's Lanes (Terri Simpson) as soon as possible!
 
WE DID IT AGAIN!   This year, we raised $1487.00 that will be given to the Senior Center!!  Way to go, Rotarians!!  
 
ROSES will be available for pick up at Main Street Beverage after 11 am on Wednesday, September 30.  THAT IS NEXT WEEK!!! Be sure to pick up your roses!!
 
Thank you, David Little & Nancy Kelly for spearheading this effort once again!
