101 Years and Counting!
Busy, busy, busy! Crete Rotary's jam-packed summer schedule continues with a regular club meeting this Wednesday at the VFW. 
Agenda items include:
Our Grocery Grab Ticket Raffle fundraiser dates are set. The drawing for the grand prize 5-minute shopping spree at Crete Foodmart will be held on Wednesday, November 1st (time and location TBD). And the shopping spree will be held at 7:30 am on Saturday, November 11th. Club members have been busy contacting last year's corporate sponsors as well as potential new sponsors. Our goal is to have all of our sponsorships determined and be able to place our ticket printing order by the end of August.
The annual Crete Pumpkin Festival is coming up on October 8th and once again Crete Rotary has been asked to provide volunteers to work at the information/ticket sales tent on Sunday, October 8th. We will be asking members to sign up for one of two shifts starting at 11:30am until 5:00 pm. Mark the date on your calendar and signup sheets will be available at the September meetings.
The Rotary District 5650 Annual Conference will be coming up soon on October 13th and 14th in Omaha. Registration information is available on the district's website. Related to the district conference is the recognition of each club's Golden Wheel Honoree. The deadline to submit our club's recipient is September 8th which is approaching very quickly. Golden Wheel Chairperson Jenn Lampila will work with the other committee members to refer one or two candidates for the club to consider. Stay tuned!
Our program for Wednesday's meeting is Joel Bramhall. Joel is the director of Crete Public School's Community Learning Center.  He has been nationally recognized for the innovative things he has implemented in Crete. Specifically, he will be speaking on all he has done with the CPS Arboretum.
Lastly, the following is an excerpt from Rotary International President Gordon R. Mcinally's August 2023 Presidential message: 

Our worldwide community and our foundational value prioritizing Service Above Self makes Rotary a powerful global advocate for mental health. A recently published study by Ohio State University found performing acts of kindness was the only one of three mental health interventions tested that helped people feel more connected to others. Study co-author David Cregg said, “Performing acts of kindness seems to be one of the best ways to promote those connections.” 

This research suggests what we’ve known all along — that doing good helps transform not just the communities we serve, but it also transforms us. As we put a greater focus on mental health, let’s not think of this effort as something new to Rotary, but rather as something we can do better and as a result have a greater impact on ourselves and the people we serve.
