FIELD TRIP - Tour of Dairy Pilot Plant  - If you weren't there, you missed two opportunities:  1) to get an in-depth tour and talk about the multi-million dollar resource that UWRF and many industry and other partners and donors have made possible in our hometown university, and 2) a chance to look really fashionable in a lab coat, hair net, and in some cases, a beard covering.  Click READ MORE to get a sense of the experience.
Changing sports metaphors is needed here:  Last Tuesday we went from a double-header to a hat trick!  This is a long story:  click Read More to read about Johanna Barbey on Camp RYLA and her upcoming exchange, Caidyn Schulz about RFHS Forensics, and Rufus Elging on bidding River Falls farewell.  Bonus:  Clicking Read More will bring up photos of the other 2 student speakers as well as Ted Marsh's guest, his former exchange student.
 
Dale Jorgenson is leading a team consisting of Tony Jilek, Karla Thoennes, and Kendra Sievers to put together a presentation that River Falls Rotarians can take "on the road" to solicit funds from other clubs as part of our district grant to fund the school forest pavilion.  Dale went through the presentation, and as he did so he asked the club members present for feedback and suggestions.  The resulting discussions, while emphasizing that we have a very good message, provided some ideas for additions and improvements.  The key remaining component of the talk will be to work out the specifics of the "ask": that is, how much we hope to raise from each Rotary Club to which we present.
River Falls Public Montessori principal Kai Rodgers started by telling the club that Dr. Maria Montessori developed her teaching methods beginning in 1907.  Montessori was first woman physician in Italy, and she was also a professor of anthropology at the University of Rome.  In 1907 she created a children’s home, Casa de Bambini.    One of her innovations was an emphasis on hands-on materials for learning.  Her methods started to spread in Europe 1910-20’s, then in the 1920-30’s to North America.   Dr. Montessori moved to India in the 1940’s to avoid threats from the Nazis in WW II.
