It is officially “shoes season” for us once again this year.   District Governor Allen Garner, Shoes Caravan Driver John Gill and I are officially “kicking off” our 17th Annual shoes collection in the Rotary Clubs in north Missouri District 6040.  Our shoes this year will go to Guatemala and Peru…and we are also working on distribution to the hurricane-damaged country of Puerto Rico… we will have our annual SHOES ROLL CALL OF CLUBS on April 28th at the District Assembly in Macon.  Our plan is to have the “John Gill trailer” at the District Assembly…with our traditional Shoes Caravan to precede on Thursday, April 26, and Friday, April 27, and culminate at the District Assembly in Macon on Saturday, April 28th.  Let the club planning, and shoe-buying season, begin for our service to orphans of our world.
