Rotary Moment of Gratitude and Positivity was led by Greg Abbey. He shared that during his ride at Ragbrai last year, he had a heart attack. Two local EMTs from the Johnson Grimes Fire Department, brothers Ty and Ryan, happened to be riding behind him. After they performed 18 minutes of CPR, Officer Robert Conrad arrived at the scene with an ADE unit provided by our Iowa City Rotary Club.
