Frank Henz, Shelbyville Cub Scout Pack Leader, was the guest at the Shelbyville Rotary Club meeting. Henz presented the Cub Scout pack flag which is very old and in need of replacing. As sponsors of Shelbyville Scouting, he made a request for funding a new flag, and asked if the club would be willing to pay half the cost.
Club member Don Behl improved upon that suggestion, and offered a proposal that they pay for the full cost of a new flag, $180. It passed unanimously. The local Cub Scout pack currently has 40 active members.
Mike Kiley, who is the Rotary liaison for the Support the Schools Committee, asks that all Rotary members and the local community, make donations to support schools with the upcoming tax referendum. Member and local superintendent Denise Bence stated that an additional two cents per gallon tax revenue would be raised from the sale of gasoline, among other taxable items previously mentioned.
Glenn Davis was the key note speaker. His topic was on what to expect in changes in the tax code for 2014.
