Ed Koeneman provided an update on activities of the GCU Rotaract Club. 
District Polio Chair (and member of Mesa West Rotary), Bob Zarling, attended their most recent club meeting and helped kick off their spring Purple Pinkie fundraiser.  
At the meeting, members helped draw or color Purple Pinkie Project posters.  One planned event for February 3 had to be cancelled because too many members were having Honors college events that day.
The members are using technology to remind them of their meetings and projects by authorizing those reminders through a GCU text messaging system.
Their next service event will take place at St. Mary's Food Bank Saturday, February 24, 2018 from Noon to 2:00 p.m.  The Purple Pinkie project fundraiser will take place on March 3.  Two shifts will work prior to the last home basketball game, with six volunteers working each shift.  
The next club meeting is scheduled for February 7 at 6:00 p.m. in the Engineering building in room 201.
