Members of Kirksville’s three Rotary clubs, along with honored guests, celebrated Rotary’s 115th Birthday on February 23.  The featured speaker was Carl Chinnery from Lee’s Summit, Missouri, who has had a very distinguished Rotary career, including serving as District Governor in 2002-2003 and receiving numerous Rotary International awards thereafter. Carl and his four brothers were all polio victims, and one brother succumbed to the disease. In a televised interview with KTVO, Carl said, “We need to eradicate this dread, awful, ugly, nasty, evil disease. It will be the second disease that has been eradicated worldwide after smallpox.
Fly the Flag
On February 19, the Rotary Club of Kirksville initiated a new fundraising project for Kirksville MO.  The club is making flag subscriptions available to Kirksville area residents.  It is not uncommon for a Rotarian to fly a flag from or near their home.  This project will feature flags being displayed near the street.  The flags will be set back 8-10 feet from the street and when numerous neighbors subscribe, will create a cooridor of flags.  Display the flag is an outward expression of gratitude for our country and its citizens.  100 percent of the funds raised will be utilized to support Rotary projects in the community.  Rotarians will be displaying the flag on 6 "flag" holidays: Memorial Day, Flag Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Patriot Day, and Veteran's Day.  If you are interested in having a flag displayed in your yard, please click the words "Fly the Flag Program" in the menu bar above.
