Members of the Paola Rotary Club and their family members surprised a few Paola residents on the morning of Saturday, Nov. 14, by showing up with rakes in hand to help collect and bag leaves. The group of about 20 volunteers man- aged to clean up six yards and fill 110 bags of leaves! Thank you to Jimmy Hay and his fellow Community Projects Committee members for organizing the event, and thank you to Casey Crum and Family Center for donating the bags and Mike Hursey for taking the leaves. It was a great service project demon- strating Rotary’s motto of “Service Above Self!”

Emily had the program that week, and she borrowed projection equipment from the Paola Free Li- brary. Purchasing projection equipment (projector, screen, stand) for Paola Rotary presenters has been brought up by multiple club members, and it may be time for the board to once again consider making that investment.

We will not have our annual Farmers Night Steak Dinner this year due to COVID-19 and the older age of our local farmers, but we have organized a lun- cheon to show support for the Paola Police Depart- ment.The luncheon will be catered by Michelle at Town Square at a cost of $10 per person, and it will take place at noon Wednesday, Oct. 14, at the Paola Justice Center.This will take the place of our regular meeting that week.There will be about 15 police officers there, and Rotary members may also attend. A sign-up sheet will be passed around at today’s meeting. Instead of fundraising to pay for the food, club members voted to bill each of our 32 members an extra $20. A meal was also planned for Paola firefighters, but they declined due to COVID-19.

Paola Rotary News & Notes

MEMBERSHIP COMMITTEE: Chad Myers, chair

During the Sept. 10 Paola Rotary Club meeting, club members discussed whether or not we should have our annual Farmers Night Steak Dinner that typi- cally takes place in October.There was some concern about the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the age of most of our famers putting them in the high risk category. During the Sept. 17 meeting, club members voted to cancel Farmers Night for 2020. Casey Crum volunteered to chair a new committee focused on planning next year’s event or possibly an event to re- place it.The community projects committee planned to meet before today’s meeting and will give a report during the regular meeting. Matt Winterscheid’s pro- gram fell through for today, so we will also discuss any other outstanding issues during the free time and likely dismiss early.

During Mike Hursey’s program today he plans to talk about a proposed Rotary project that could help highlight the history of the buildings around the Square by placing a bronze plaque on the front facade. This would likely involve some fundraising and collaboration with the city, which would soon like to begin a downtown revitalization project.

Offering to-go dinners was suggested, but it also was suggested to cancel the event this year and focus on other projects.The consensus was to create a Farmers Night committee, similar to the parade committee, that would handle the organization each year.This could potentially be a sub-committee of the Community Projects Committee. No official decision regarding this year’s event was made.

Amanda McVey is wearing a brace but still has not returned to classes following a Feb. 15 fall in which she frac- tured a bone in her lower back. McVey, a member of the Paola High School class of 2000, went to Niter- oi, Brazil, in Augustas a participant in the Rotary Youth Exchange program. McVey was climbing rocks near a waterfall with members of her host family when she slipped and fell between 20 and 30 feet, falling through the waterfall and into a pool below.
