New Member: Trish Klaver, Executive Director of the YMCA in Sterling, was inducted into Rotary.  We thank her and welcome her into our club and the Rotary experience.
Program: John G. introduced Keeley Knie.   Keely participated in a mission trip called "World Race" in 2017.   She visited 11 countries in 11 months.  Prior to the trip she participated in a 10 day training to prepare.   While on her trip, they connected with other organizations to help others and share gospel.   She shared with us that the experience brought her closer to her faith and allowed her to better appreciate the blessings of living in the United States.  She witnessed much poverty and living conditions unlike anything in America.  Thank you for sharing this remarkable experience.
