"If you can't fly, then run. If you can't run, then walk.
If you can't walk, then crawl, but by all means, keep moving."

Roger reports that our progress toward our goals is going well, half way through the Rotary year. Our Polio Plus goal of $4,000 has reached 79%. Our goal for the Annual Fund is at 48% of our goal of $8,400. Also, our members have contributed $3800 so far this year to the Greater Boise Rotary Foundation. Keep up the good work!! And don't forget to sign up for Rotary Direct!
It was fun to have our meeting at the new venue last week. How did you like it? We want to know. We generally thought it worked well. The acoustics were great and Life's Kitchen did a fine job with our lunch, although we noted a lack of drink options. I counted 21 people in the room at one point. Did it feel cramped?

We'll be looking for high school kids to send.....Payette Brewery is too loud for our Wednesday meet-ups.....we'll try somewhere else......our Foundation Scholarship for Cadet Quilter's year at Oxford has been fully dispersed.....we have a D5400 Grant in the bank for next Spring's loafing shed project.......we want to be thinking about prospects for this spring's grant cycle........
