Tonight we officially inducted 3 new members into our club: Jaime Theisen and Misty Wright, both new Rotarians, and A.W. Pickel, a transferring Rotarian!  We're super excited to have them join the club!  Welcome, again, Jaime, Misty, and A.W.!  🙂
District 5710 will be hosting the annual Gathering for Good, a fundraising event to benefit the Rotary Foundation.  The night will include dinner, live entertainment, a silent auction, and more!  More information can be found on the District 5710 web page here:  Gathering for Good
We also briefly discussed a couple of upcoming events we'll be hosting in April – Virtual Music Bingo and our Learn to Curl event at the new Kansas City Curling Club in Blue Springs.  We'll have more information out very soon on both of these events!
Our guest speaker for the evening was Alyssa Perbeck, Resource Development Director for CASA of Johnson & Wyandotte Counties.  CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) for Children provides volunteer advocates to youth in our city that are going through the court systems.  CASA advocates are appointed by a judge to advocate for the child's best interest in court.  CASA volunteers build consistent, trusting relationships with each child.  This ensures children are not going through the court system alone.  Alyssa shared that CASA has helped over 5,200 children since 1985 and, currently, they have over 200 advocates supporting over 400 children!  To learn more about how you can help this amazing organization, please visit
