Program:  Our program today was Matt Schweizer - District Store Director of Hy-Vee.  He oversees the stores in Muscatine, Durant, Wapello, Columbus Junction and West Liberty.  Matt started his career at Hy-Vee as a stocker in Mason City, he moved to Muscatine in 2012.   There are 275 Hy-Vee stores in the midwest and they hope to add 20-30 a year for the next few years.  Voted 5th best grocery store chain in the United States.  The company employees 88,000 people in the state of Iowa, 2nd largest employer in Iowa.  The company donates $60 million a year to charities, the 3 largest being - the Red Cross, Veterans Foundation, and Make a Wish Foundation.   Local stores can choose their local charities.  Their largest competition right now is online shopping - Amazon and Walmart.  Matt shared with us what it was like being a food supplier when everything shut down in March of 2020 and all the challenges - staff shortages, supply shortages, safety for workers and shoppers, online orders increasing overnite to what they normally did in a whole week.  They hired 22 nurses to administer Covid 19 vaccines, in March alone they gave 10,000 shots.  Staffing is still a BIG concern.   Matt was very happy to announce that they are getting new technology, scanners, etc. this week.  Thank you Matt and Hy-Vee.  
Reminders:  June 28, 2021 - our program will be Sheriff Quinn Riess.  July 5th - there will not be a meeting in observance of Independence Day.  July 12 - Will be the Rotary Presidential Gavel Passing.  
Have a great week.
