Over three hundred people supported the "Empty Bowls" event February1st sponsored by the Lee's Summit Sunrise Rotary Club. It is a fund-raiser with its biggest benefactor, "One Good Meal" which serves meals for the home bound in the community. Friday, February 28 a $10,000 check was given to Roberta McArthur, Director of One Good Meal and Dayton Runkle who serves on the Board of One Good Meal. Presenting the check was Sunrise Rotary Club President, Carl Froeschle.

The "Empty Bowls" event was held at historic Longview Mansion, built 100 years ago at Longview Farm, that was the country estate of Kansas City lumber baron and philanthropist, R.A. Long. (1850-1934). Local restaurants serve attendees their best soup, bread, and desert. Each person also receives a custom made ceramic bowl made by a local craftsman. The event was a "sold out" affair.

Sunrise Rotary Club president, Carl Froeschle, said that Rotary is a way for each of us to "leave a positive mark" on this world that alone we could never accomplish.

The Sunrise Rotary Club meets each Friday morning at 7:15 AM at the Emaline Ballroom 616 SW 3rd Street. For more information contact club president, Carl Froeschle, 816-805-5385, or vice president, Bob Paradise, 816-277-6085.
