Rotarian and EICC Chancellor, Don Doucette, will provide an update on the Eastern Iowa Community Colleges, including an update on the development of a full- service urban campus in Downtown Davenport to be located within several downtown Davenport buildings.  The new full-service urban campus will allow Scott Community College to more than double its capacity downtown to 1,500-plus students. In addition, EICC’s Continuing Education programs, currently serving more than 30,000 students annually, will be integrated into the new campus.  

 

 

 
 

Happy New Year Rotarians….Rotary is back in session! Join us on Monday, January 5 as we kick off 2015 with our club assembly, a time for the membership to weigh on what is being done right, what could be done better and even what needs to change.  Topics on the survey include membership recruitment and retention, membership satisfaction, club social activities and foundation giving.  This is a great opportunity to make sure your opinion is heard.  It’s also a great time to sign up and serve on a committee in 2015.  Don’t miss it!

Man in iron lung discovers Rotary
One might think a man living with polio in an iron lung would know about Rotary. But it wasn't until Paul Alexander had a business meeting with a member in Duncanville, Texas, earlier this year that he learned Rotary fights to eradicate the very disease that left him almost completely paralyzed. "I was completely blown away by the idea. For all these years, I didn't know the work they were doing," says Alexander, a practicing attorney in Dallas. "It's such a perfect fit for me."
