Dennis said we are scheduled to place and pick up 166 flags on July 4th.  1 more volunteer is needed for placing and 2 for pick up.  Kip volunteered him and his wife for pickup.  Placing is at 7 am and pick up is at 6 pm. Meet at the school.  A big Thank You to Dennis and Frank for everything they do for this project.
 
Barb and Dave have been shopping for back packs and school supplies for Completely Kid's and Sacred Heart School.  30 back packs are filled with the list of supplies Completely Kid's asked for.  They will be delivered this week.  More back packs are on order so we will have 30 back packs for Sacred Heart School plus school supplies.  So far we are a little under what was budgeted for the back packs and supplies.
 
Barb will pick out a date to cook at Ronald McDonald House after finishing up the backpack and school supply project.
 
Dale is planning to contact Completely Kid's to see if they need any volunteers for the summer program.
 
Deb said she has items ready to drop off for the homeless shelters. She will be dropping off items for the Stephens Center soon. The centers appreciate getting storage totes, clothing and food items. You can bring items to any of our meetings for Deb and Joann to deliver the following shelters: Open Door Mission, Stephens Center, Sienna Francis House. 
 
Deb is still collecting aluminum cans. You can bring them to any meeting. She redeems them and donates the money to our club.
 
Joann is planning to attend the District Convention on August 2nd and 3rd. She has arranged for 2 of our members to be on the Memorial Board. She will be installed as Lieutenant Governor during the convention.
 
Kip said our Installation Dinner will be Tuesday, October 1st at Champions Run Golf Course.  Save the date. More information to come.
 
A little reminder to send in your service hours for June to Glen.
 
Vince introduced our speaker Gretchen Crane. She is Community & Donor Engagement Manager for Omaha Conservatory of Music. She has enjoyed a highly varied career that includes opera residencies across the country, concert performances at acclaimed venues like the Kennedy Center, and experimental recordings that push the boundaries of classical music. Gretchen shared very interesting information about the Omaha Conservatory Of Music. Their mission is Building a Diverse Musical Community One Note at a Time. Their rich, vibrant musical community offers a variety of classes, interaction with guest artists, ensemble experiences, concerts, educational workshops, solo and group performances, and other unique opportunities in collaboration with arts organizations throughout the region. We really enjoyed her presentation. There is a lot more information available on their website.
