In anticipation of an upcoming visit by the Rotary district governor Aug., 9, Estherville Rotary Club members Thursday compiled a list of projects the club has been working on - or plans on working on in the future.

n Estherville flight breakfast.

n Cleaning the road ditch along Highway 9 east of Estherville.

n Working the street dance concession during Sweet Corn Days.

n Meals on Wheels.

n The swinging bridge.

n Reading program.

n Halloween.

n Little League.

n Friends of Fort Defiance.

n The restroom project at the Emmet County Fairgrounds.

Nancy Anderson noted the biggest project to date for the Vocational/Educational Committee has been honoring executive assistants.

Mark Henry suggested a community volunteer could be honored, and Shadle suggested highlighting local businesses by inviting several employees from each business to meetings throughout the year.

For the International Committee, Craig Baker noted the following:

n Rotary student exchange.

n Group study exchange.

n Shoebox project.

For the Membership Committee, Lisa Dreeszen noted a couple goals:

n Have a net increase of one member over the next year.

The group also discussed a number of potential members that could be invited.

Shadle said 10-11 new Paul Harris Fellow medallions will be presented at the Aug. 9 meeting.
