Thanks to everyone who helped Saturday and a special thanks to Mark Roberts who helped organize!  See more photos on Facebook.
-  Almost 120 volunteers at meal packaging project Saturday from four clubs: West, Suburban, Millard and Night
   -  Packaged 27,000 meals (125 boxes of 36 packages each, with each package providing 6 meals)
   -  Omaha Against Hunger and volunteers from The Family Room Church started preparation well before 7:30, volunteers packaged all the meals in two 1 hour shifts, and Madeline Moyer was vacuuming the room after most had left
   -  Omaha Against Hunger was planning to take the boxes to The Beautiful Gate so they could use the meals in their outreach efforts to the Omaha community (meals twice a week and a food pantry)

Rotary Leadership Institute
Engage and empower members . . .
Energize and strengthen your Rotary Club . . .
Provide Leadership Development for Members . . . 
Learn about Rotary and have fun!
That is the Rotary Leadership Institute experience!
Rotary Leadership Institute (RLI) is a facilitated program with active participation - not lecturing. Topics important to Rotary and Rotary Clubs such as Effective Service Projects, Membership Engagement, and understanding The Rotary Foundation are explored. You will discuss real challenges and exchange ideas.
Sign up yourself - you will be a more effective leader for your Rotary Club.
Nominate members and they will naturally become more engaged because they will have a richer Rotary experience.
RLI is for everyone - Leadership is not a position, it is action.
