Dec 15: Dan and Debbie's Creamery and Dairy
December 15th we heard former Rotarian Josie Rozum, explaining recent dairy innovations a Dan and Debbie's farm operation.  I hope to have a video link she shared, in a future Bulletin. 
Josie Rozum showed us her family's dairy operation and talked about Dan and Debbie's Creamery where products are developed, produced and sold. 
Its a family operation, from growing the cattle feed, the dairy cow herd, to their dairy products you purchase at HyVee. 
December Social Activities Report
We look forward to Lynette and Mary's report tomorrow...
Sunrise Rotary held our second beer tasting with Iowa Brewing Company Dec 10.   The brewmaster entertained us with his creative brews, what inspired him, and then we tasted each one. 
Our annual Holiday Party gathered members and spouses for some fun and hopefully good-food, from the Sunrise gift cards to local restaurants.
We look forward to in-person socials sometime in 2021!
