BE PROUD TO BE A ROTARIAN
ESPECIALLY A ROTARIAN IN THE ROTARY CLUB OF ST. LOUIS

 


The Four-Way Test of the things we think, say or do

1. Is it the truth?
2. Is it fair to all concerned?
3. Will it build goodwill and better friendships?
4. Will it be beneficial to all concerned?

A BIG THANK YOU to all of this year’s Board Members and Committee Chairs. This Club would not be able to run efficiently without you.

Through ‪Rotary‬, you have the opportunity to expand your leadership skills and achieve your goals. Get involved in a committee, sit with someone different every week, when ask to serve on as a Board position treat it as a special invitation to not only serve but also enlighten yourself. You will find you will gain much more personally than you can only dream of.‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬‬

Ken Weintraub joined us on Thursday to give a history of sports business in St. Louis. He gave us a history of sports showing us the difference in local ownership and out of town ownership. There was so much information that even a sports guy like me had trouble comprehending everything. Outstanding.

This Thursday we should be treated to another bit of history as authors John A Wright, Sr and John A Wright, Jr discuss their book Extraordinary Black Missourians. African Americans have been a part of Missouri from its territorial days to the present, and Extraordinary Black Missourians describes more than 100 pioneers, educators, civil rights activists, scientists, entertainers, athletes, journalists, authors, soldiers, and attorneys who have lived in the state for part or all of their lives. Josephine Baker, Lloyd Gaines, Langston Hughes, Annie Malone, Dred Scott, Roy Wilkins, and others featured in the book are representative of individuals who have contributed to the African American legacy of Missouri. They set records, made discoveries, received international acclaim and awards, as well as led in the civil rights movement by breaking down racial barriers. These accomplishments, and others, have played a major role in shaping the history and culture of the state and nation.
