Cow Bell Ringing:  Jessica Wittman thanked Megan Francis for filling in for the Secretary.  Jessica also called attention to the District 6000 Newsletter where Rotary Club of Muscatine was awarded for the highest District Conference attendance. 
Club Business:  Reminder that Jessica Wittman bought Rotary koozies, they are on sale on donation - raising funds for Rotary. 
Program:  Our program was Gretchen Nollman  - an outlook on the 2019 crops.  The crop yield will definitely be different due to the amount of flooding we have seen recently and the cold at the beginning of the year.  Planting of corn and beans were both delayed.  The upcoming heat is good for the crops because we are behind on heat units.  Weather will effect yields and process for both corn and beans.  Bean crop is going to be much lower than average.  Thank you Gretchen. 
Next Meeting will be July 22, 2019 at noon at the Rendezvous.
