Board of Directors
Posted by Paul Bierhaus on Jul 20, 2016
St. Louis Park Rotary, since 1947, has developed a reputation as one of the friendliest Rotary clubs in the state.
“Mondays Matter,” as past president, Pastor David Landt once stated. Our Monday noontime meetings at the convenient Doubletree Park Place Hotel by Hilton, located near 394 and Xenia/Park Place, feature the best food in District 5950 and an unsurpassed lineup of quality speakers. If you want to learn about things you would never be exposed to, come to our club, meet great business and civic leaders, and listen to our excellent speakers.
Rotary is a wonderful organization that believes in making the world a better place to live, both locally and worldwide. We have committed to safe water wells in Central America and Africa and often send Rotarians to those places to make it happen. We are committed to impactful literacy programs, international peace and conflict scholarships, improving health care in St. Louis Park and globally, and so much more.
We are more than International Humanitarian Service. Our commitments begin at home. For instance, St. Louis Park Rotary founded the nationally-acclaimed initiative called "Children First." This movement was birthed in our club and we aggressively support it some two decades later. We also do mentoring in the elementary schools and the high school in the "Park" and also support STEP (St. Louis Park Emergency Service Program) to make sure there is food for those people less fortunate than most.
In addition to our humanitarian commitments, we enjoy and benefit from fellowship with people from all walks of life. If you are interested in weekly lunch meetings, featuring great food, great fellowship, great speakers and helping to make our world in St. Louis Park and beyond, a better place, come and check us out.
We meet at 11:45 a.m. every Monday at the Doubletree Hotel at 1500 Park Place, St. Louis Park. We would love to meet you, and we guarantee you will leave knowing you have been among people who really care.
Following is the Rotary international theme for 2015-2016. It clearly spells out what we all want to be: a real gift to the world.
