IC Noon Rotary Stories
Watch today's meeting here:
Our Meeting was called to order by President Jim Conard.
Rtn. Eric Weiler presented today’s Rotary Moment of Positivity and Gratitude.  Eric reflected on how his family is taking the time to reconnect.  From the outset, they came together to create a schedule, which includes more walks together and eating dinner as a family each night.  He wants his children to reflect back on this time positively and appreciate the closeness they shared.
Rtn. Trisha Smith announced United Way updates. Yesterday, Iowa City Noon Rotary, in partnership with the United Way, delivered meals from Big Grove to Marcy Iowa City (special thanks to Rtn. Sean McIntyre for helping with delivery) and the Marriott delivered 150 lunches to the Iowa City Free Lunch Program.  This morning, Trisha got to lift up our club on air on Z102.5.  Trisha also announced the Mask Up Program, in partnership with the Community Foundation of Johnson County.  Volunteers can pick up mask kits to sew and return to United Way.  Their goal is to have 2,000 masks to distribute to organizations that need them.
Rtn. Mary Ellen Lewis, Chair of the Rotary Youth Exchange announced that this year’s exchange student, Ana, has returned to Germany, but had a wonderful experience with her 3 host families and wants to send her thanks to our club.  Mary Ellen is stepping down as Chair and is seeking a new chair.
Rtn. Heather Croskrey announced that in lieu of the now-postponed Ronald McDonald House Gold Outing, they will open the programs sponsorship link on June 1st, the original date of the golf outing. All proceeds from this will count toward the golf outing.  Information can be found at
Rtn. Pete Wallace announced that our club was able to provide Table to Table with a $500 grant to buy a new printer and software, which will help them greatly during this time of crisis.
President-Elect Barb Thomas announced that she will be emailing all members information on renewing their dues.  Remember that your dues and contributions to the Rotary Foundation help our local community.
