Recently I have had a chance to make several club visits.  I wanted to share just a few highlights from my time with District 6040 Clubs.  
Kirksville and Kirksville Thousand Hills:
I went to the Kirkville Rotary Club with Marie Murphree, President and the Kirkville Thousand Hills Rotary Club with Marilyn Romine, President.
Great meeting at both Clubs.
I got a tour of Kirksville with Past Rotary International President Ray Klinginsmith and Past District Governors Ralph Cupelli and Matt Eichor. I was able to see all the projects both these Clubs have done for the Kirkville community and is truly amazing. I was also able to have Dinner with several members of both Clubs at the beautiful lake at the Thousand Hills State Park. No trip would be complete without getting to play a round of Golf with Ray Cupelli, Zach Springer and Jon Peck at the Kirksville Country Club! Just a great visit and thank you to both Clubs for their hospitality and all they do for Rotary.
