IPTV needs volunteers to man the phone banks again this year for their Festival on Sunday, March 5, from 2:30-7:30PM at their studio in Johnston, Iowa.   Rotarians have been so successful in the past at answering the phones that IPTV has asked us to do it again this year and we agreed. We encourage you to wear your colorful Rotary shirt (white shirts do not reflect well on TV). Lots of food and refreshments will be provided to keep your energy and your spirits up while we help IPTV achieve their goals. 
If you are interested in joining with District Governor Chris Knapp and his wife Vernette that day to show support for IPTV and have a great time doing it, please email Erna Morain to to sign up before Sunday, Feb. 26, 2017. We need at least 20 volunteers! Questions? Call Erna 515-205 2043.
