NO MEETING ON TUESDAY, JANUARY 18, 2022 AS PERKINS RESTAURANT WAS NOT ABLE TO OPEN EARLY BECAUSE OF STAFF SHORTAGE.  Guest speaker, Wade Johnson, has been rescheduled for Tuesday, March 15, 2022.  NEXT MEETING WILL BE OUR REGULAR BUSINESS MEETING ON FEBRUARY 1, 2022.
Our speaker to start off the new year was Bruce Day, Executive Director of Helena Food Share (pictured [r] with club member, Tony Perpignano [l]).  Bruce gave a great overview of an amazing year-round program that delivers thousands of pounds of food to folks in need.  See HFS's website for information: https://helenafoodshare.org/  Thank you Bruce!
Our guest speaker on Tuesday, December 21, 2021 was Charlene White of the Premier Dance Company/Creative Arts Center
Our guest for Tuesday, December 7, 2021 (Pearl Harbor Day) was Assistant District Governor, Jeff Langlinais.
Our speaker on Tuesday, November 23, 2021, was Lisa Cordingly of the Helena Education Foundation.  Most discussion was regarding accomplishing the connections for concluding a Rotary District 5390 grant, but Lisa also passed on the energy and commitment of the Foundation and its volunteer membership.
Our speakers on Tuesday, August 31, 2021, were Anita and Jay Sherley, founders of Life Houses.  Life Houses is a faith-based non-profit organization that supports young adults ages 18-25 who are coming from all of life’s various circumstances.  Life Houses Inc. was started because the Sherleys saw many young people living visionless, passionless, and sometimes hopeless, lives. Some wandered from job to job, couch to couch, party to party. Some died. Anita and Jay, along with a 9 member board of directors seek to redirect destructive lifestyles by providing safe housing and a healthy environment.  Young adults in the program must have a willingness to work with life coaches and mentors who speak truth and help build foundations for success.  While living in Life Houses, young adults uncover their strengths, develop life-long friendships, and create their own futures through presence and purpose.
New Club President, Monica Lindeen is shown above being sworn in by out-going President, Kristina Warren.  Kristina has done a fantastic job leading the club through a most difficult year with Covid 19 pandemic restrictions changing much of the way we meet and operate as a club.  President Monica is ready to see us move forward into an even better future!  Congratulations to BOTH leaders!
Our speaker on Tuesday, May 25, 2021, was Dan Rispens, shown here with club members Murray Strong (L) and Tony Perpignano (R).  Dan is the incoming Superintendent of East Helena's Public Schools.  Dan gave a great update on the rapid growth and change East Helena, its surrounding communities, and the schools have undergone - namely huge growth.  More to come from East Helena in future updates!
Our speaker on Tuesday, April 27, 2021 was Dan Ellison of the Last Chance Audubon Society.  Dan gave an overview of birding in the Helena and surrounding area via an informative and humor injected slide presentation.  Additionally, he offered links and references to additional resources on the subject (below).  Thanks, Dan!
