Eleven of the 24 Summer Interns working through the Greater Fort Dodge Growth Alliance's program in conjunction with area businesses visited Rotary on Monday.  Each Intern introduced themselves, their status in college, programs of study, and who they are working for this summer.  This program has become highly successful and primarily works on "word of mouth" referrals through local contacts.  Some Interns did search-out the program to apply.  The key ingredient is a "real world" working experience rather than remedial activities.  The program was introduced by Maddie O'Brien who is an intern with the Greater Fort Dodge Growth Alliance and is a coordinator for the program.  Elements are:
  1. Each month all interns are brought to a "Lunch and Learn" program as they are introduced to the Fort Dodge area.  Other activities include a variety of capacity building for social and business skills;
  2. Practical training in work dynamics;
  3. Get together socials
  4. A round table of tours of intern work sites.
On a personal note you can find in the accompanying picture Anna Yung, daughter of Rotarian Kirk Yung.  Perhaps we should give a Rotary award for anybody contacting Steve by Email through the Website's Email Program and correctly identifying her.
The following have volunteered to provide the weekly invocation as our meetings start.  If you are unable to make your assigned schedule please contact a substitute that will then check-in with the President prior to the meeting.

Rotarian Amy Bruno appeared on the front page of the Friday "Messenger" with an article touting how the Fort Dodge United Way has benefited by an Amazon.com program that provides funds proportional to purchases to area not for profit organizations.
Rotarian Todd McCubbin was pictured in Sunday's "Messenger" providing to the Fort Dodge Public Library a check for $750.  The money was proceeds made from the sale of a special brew by Shiny Top Brewing called Overdue.  A very good name to honor the Fort Dodge Public Library.
Rotarian Casey Johnson appeared in picture twice in the Monday edition of the "Messenger."  Casey had the honor of presenting the trophies to the winners of the City Golf Tournament held over the weekend.  Other than being hot, it was a lovely weekend.
