To All Shoes Cheerleaders in Rotary District 6040 Rotary Clubs –
 
Good morning.  I hope this finds each of you safe and healthy.
 
Ten final points for your reminder/consideration – thank you.
 
  1. For Day 1, Day 2, Day 3, and Day 4 – we will be pulling a smaller trailer so can be even more nimble for those caravan stops.  Day 5 and Day 6 – we will have the 53’ trailer.
  2. We definitely are coming to your community, whether you have shoes, checks, both, or none.  We want to say thank you for this year, and for 20 years, and we have built a six-day schedule based on being in every community.
  3. At each stop, we will do a short 10-15 second video for the Shoes Roll Call Report for each club.  Be ready!!
  4. Checks made payable to Shoes for Orphan Souls.
  5. Best packing for shoes is to have them in boxes like those you’d use to move things from your house.  Easy to load and unload for those working the caravan.
  6. I appreciate the 30 caravan stop locations that have been identified to date in the following Rotary communities – we will see you there at your scheduled day and time as outlined below - Cameron, Gallatin, Bethany, Albany, Maryville, Tarkio, Rock Port, Savannah, Brookfield, Marceline, Edina, Macon, Milan, Princeton, Trenton, Plattsburg, Lawson, Smithville, Gladstone, Odessa, Independence, Raytown, Kansas City South, Parkville, Richmond, Lee’s Summit, Liberty, Chillicothe, St. Joseph, North Kansas City.
  7. I appreciate the efforts of the 14 remaining caravan stop locations to finalize their caravan stop locations – please let me know where you would like to meet us at your scheduled day and time as outlined belowneed the locations for Huntsville, Moberly, Kirksville, Memphis, Lancaster, Unionville, Lathrop, Excelsior Springs, Kearney, Weston, Platte City, Blue Springs, Lexington, Higginsville.
  8. Hope you’ll use this as an opportunity for some Public Image in your community.
  9. Any questions please let me know.  Larry cell number 913-269-7131.
  10. I look forward to seeing you soon on our caravan over the next two long weekends.  20,000 pairs, here we come!
