The Rotary Club of Brandon got a big dose of John Maxwell this past week with John Maxwell Team Trainer, Kris Beaird, imparting some leadership wisdom at our weekly luncheon. Kris's  exercise about leaders' capacities in roles was illustrated with a simple water bottle and lid. The purpose was to illustrate that the lid represents containment of capacity, and we all have to challenge where our lids are. Kris also spoke to self awareness and how other people may view us in our leadership roles.
Next week's meeting is a big one as the club disperses over $60,000 in funds to our designated charities for the year. The club is also recognizing its three scholarship recipients as well. Rotarian Nick Hall will be speaking as well about his trek across the country to raise money for Polio Plus.
This week the club celebrates John Gardner & Pat Brumley's 29th wedding anniversary on the 27th, Cade Rivard's birthday on the 26th, and club anniversaries for Kathy Curry on the 23rd (9 years) and Chris Larson on the 24th (5 years).
