Club Stories
We are looking forward to the meeting this week.  Same time and place, Thursday 11:30 am in the Beijing Room at Cornell Commons.

Last week we had a fabulous former Youth Exchange Student, Robert Petrie present to our club.  He is a Cornell student.  Hearing about his experience was exciting and entertaining!  Speaking of Youth Exchange, our student will arrive on December 23rd!  If you are interested in greeting her at the airport, we will have a group of people their to welcome her.  Ask John Schultz for arrival details.
We are also working on finalizing the CPR training for January 27th.  Promotions coming soon!

Editor's note: A search for "cross country" led us to these short biographies of a couple of Rotarians, which appeared in the Hawkeye-Record Dec. 6, 1945.

Two Rotarions Tell Life Stories

The Rotary Club of Mt Vernon-Lisbon has partnered with another local Mt Vernon organization called One Mission Fundraising.  One Mission offers a platform for organization and individuals to raise funds for their church, school, medical cause, or community project among other things.  You can buy great products and know that 40% of the dollars you spend go to the cause or you can simply chose to donate directly on the site.  Check out the site at: One Mission Fundraising for Mt Vernon-Lisbon Rotary

For years, Angalia Bianca had slept in abandoned buildings throughout Chicago. She stole. She did drugs. She spent time in and out of jail for forgery, theft, trespassing, and possession of narcotics. But after she landed in prison for the seventh time, something changed -- Bianca knew she wanted a better life. She just didn’t know how to make it happen.

Change your community with us by volunteering on a local project.

We work with groups and organizations of all sizes to accomplish even more.
