America's River Art Project

Rotarian and resident artist, Gary Olsen, previews and reports on the progress he's making on a painting commissioned by the Dubuque Rotary Club celebrating its 100th Anniversary and the 15th Anniversary of its commitment to America's River Project. Gary is known for his landscapes and cityscapes of Dubuque, Iowa and its environs. You can visit his studio at The painting will be issued as a limited edition print, signed and numbered by the artist and available this fall. Funds raised by the sale of these prints will benefit local humanitarian projects and non-profit organizations that are dedicated to improving the lives of others and making Dubuque a great place to live and raise families.

A few people are needed to coordinate and plan the reception - please talk to Danita if you can help.


We welcomed Stacey Hines and Digger Kurt from Young Professionals (YP). Stacey and Digger are amazing young leaders in our community who told us all about YP's activities and how it has made an impact in their lives. We thank them for being with us today and look forward to identify ways that Rotary and YP can work together.

Next week:

The meeting will be at the Grand River Center. We welcome our 2017/18 District Governor (and Rachel's father!), Ralph Smith.

Also, Don Sanders, Doug Pearce, Glenn Lichti & Larry Loeppke will have a special presentation for Bob Casper's family who will be in attendance. It should be a special moment for a wonderful Rotarian who we lost this past year.

In Rotary Service,
Steve Davis
