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.

Centennial Minute

Considering all the wonderful things Rotary Club does in the community and the world, no wonder people in the community who want to make a difference join Rotary Club. This is a special sneak peak video and the first of several "Centennial Minutes" featuring members of Rotary Club telling how and why they joined Rotary Club. Produced by Sandi Helgerson and Gary Olsen.

Club Announcements:

  • Paul Harris Fellow Recognition: Congratulations to Erin Dragotto & Carprice Jones on earning the Paul Harris Fellow designation. Erin was sponsored by Steve Geisz and Caprice by Glenn Lichti.
  • Youth Exchange: We received one application at the deadline for outbound sponsorships for the 2018/19 school year. Thank you to Danita and the Youth Exchange committee for your efforts in seeking applicants.
  • RYE District Event: All 11 of the youth exchange students across the district will be in Dubuque on November 11th and 12th. This presents an opportunity for Rotarians to have a social outing to meet and network with the students. The social event will be on Saturday the 11th to coincide with the performance at UD's Heritage Center. Look for more information via email.
  • Million Pennies: The committee led by Kim Adams has been diligently working to seek sponsorship dollars during this "quiet phase" of the fundraising event. The goal once again is to collect $10,000 which goes towards funding our local humanitarian grants each year. Although you may not hear much from the committee over the course of the fall, they still welcome your collection of change (not just pennies!) at any time.


We always have a good time when Gary Dolphin joins us. There was no shortage of jokes and digs during this program. We learned all about the 2017 Hawkeye football team and, interestingly, the logistics behind the production of the radio broadcast for each game. Thanks, Gary for your time and your continued excellence on the air.

In Rotary Service,
Steve Davis
