During Monday's meeting Rotary celebrated one day early its 100th birthday by lighting 100 candles on a birthday cake and then eating the evidence.  Last fall we conducted a 100th anniversary event that benefited the Rotary Foundation.  Kraig and Dave did a wonderful job getting all 100 candles lit before the cake began to melt.

Rotarian Doug Van Zyl appeared on the front page of the Tuesday "Messenger" with an article announcing the agreement on a labor agreement for a large segment of the employees of the Fort Dodge Community Schools.  This was the first contract negotiated after the changes voted into law by the just completed session of the General Assembly. 
 
A long time Rotarian appeared in a very large picture in the Sunday edition of the "Messenger."  Bruce Shimkat was pictured in an article announcing that Shimkat Motors was one of four dealerships in Iowa to receive the Customer First Award of Excellence from Fiat Chrysler of America.  This is a very fitting award given the company's upcoming 70th Anniversary.
