At the Oct. 4 meeting, we announced the OnePledge Committee has selected the Rotary Expedition Africa Playground at the Oklahoma City Zoo & Botanical Garden for the 2022-2023 Rotary Project.  

The Rotary Expedition Africa Playground will be located in a 14 acre African savannah and lush rainforest within the heart of the zoo complex – giving zoo visitors the experience of taking a journey to Africa (a continent that remarkably less than one tenth of 1% of all Americans will ever visit) to see its amazing wildlife and become inspired to protect the animals from the African continent.  The Children’s Play Area will be located inside the historic pachyderm building and will be the only indoor play space at the Zoo and is thus expected to be among the most highly trafficked areas at the Zoo!  

As you know, this is the one combined annual project in which we, as a Club, ask 100% of our members to participate. In addition to providing $85,000 for the Rotary Expedition Africa Playground, Club 29 will be funding High School Rotarian scholarships and books for our Literacy Project… all through this one donation.  A total of $110,000 is needed. 

We have made it very easy for you. Please donate or pledge by clicking on the following link. It takes no time at all.

Rotary Dues Increase - Jan. 1, 2023 - A Message from President Wes 

Dear Fellow Rotarians, 

At the Sept. 27 lunch meeting, we shared some news about a conversation that began over two years ago. Prior to the pandemic, it was clear to our administration committee, budget committee, and board of officers and directors that a dues increase would be necessary for the club to maintain a balanced budget. With the arrival of the pandemic, we were able to delay that conversation. As we’ve seen a return to normal club operations, meetings, and service, we’ve also seen an increase in almost every expense of the club due to inflation and we were forced to revisit the conversation. At the recommendation of our administration and budget committees, the 2021-2022 board of officers and directors approved a dues increase of $15 per quarter, or $5 a month, effective January 1, 2023.   READ MORE

Wings of Rotary - Japan 2023 - Applications Due Dec. 1!!!!!

 Each summer, District 5750 sends a team of 10th to 12th graders to District 2520 located in the Miyagi and Iwate prefectures in Japan for approximately two weeks.   
In taking part of WINGS of Rotary, students will learn a new way of living, a great deal about yourself, and maybe even a new language. You'll also be an ambassador, teaching people you meet about your country, culture, and ideas. You can help bring the world closer - and make some good friends in the process.  
More than 8,000 young people each year have experiences like these through Rotary Youth Exchanges. It's the opportunity of a lifetime. Are you ready for it?   For more information contact Keith Oehlert.
