Happy Birthday Rotary in Fort Dodge
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.

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.
