Make sure a few of them are dirt

Our speaker this week will be Patti Perkins, CEO of Calyx-Weaver and Associates, and HR consulting firm here in Boise. She'll talk to us about "Emotional Intelligence".
Participants will be notified Monday, that's tomorrow! If you haven't heard from me by Monday evening, please let me know! Prepare to be surprised! We have 21 people signed up for the dinner on May 4th. BUT, you won't be notified of your assignment until Monday April 29th. Please don't ask me ahead of time....we won't tell!
Fund raising for the Rotary Park on the Greenbelt is underway! Last week, we "sold" the last bench for $2,500.  We have applied for District Grants to suppor the benches and interpretive signs. We have set up a GoFundMe account which is already attracting attention.  We had a display table set up at District Celebration.  There are TWO things you can do right now:
  • Buy a Rotary Brick. Leave your name to posterity by having a brick engraved in the plaza.
  • Make a contribution on the GoFundMe page and be sure to share it with your social media contacts.

Last week Cornelia provided more information about the Young Africa Leadership Initiative happening in June.   The Department of English at BSU won a managing grant from the Mandela Washington Fellowship. There will be 26 young professionals from all over Africa visiting Boise for six weeks  starting in June. June 25th has been scheduled for "Home Dinners". We can volunteer to assist in a variety of ways: drivers, mentors, one-on-ones, etc. They'll be living on Campus but we don't want them to tire of student union fare! 
Check out this video link to the details and registration, and share it with your friends!   LINK  Our First Annual Rotary Fishing Derby will be held May 11th at  Eagle Island State Park. Starting at 8:00AM and going till about noon.  Lots of features to make this a fun day for the whole family! Food trucks, beer garden, raffles, lots of prizes. If you catch the biggest fish you become eligible for a $10,000 grand prize! Michela is working on a website which will show all the details and allow for on-line registration.  This promises to be a major fundraiser for our club.   ALL HANDS ON DECK FOR THIS ONE!
