The Rochester Rotary Risers have been putting more focus on Vocational Service in the past couple years through vocational roundtables, vocational talks, and vocational rotation days. This year, we are also implementing vocational panels in which 2-3 Rotarians have an opportunity to discuss a vocational question or prompt with each other and share with the club. The summary and priorities below give an overview of how Vocational Service fits into the three pillars of The Rotary Foundation, Public Image, and Membership to advance the priorities of Rotary.
Our motto is Service Above Self. To support our service projects, the Rochester Rotary Risers are in the midst of our 2nd Annual Calendar Raffle.
Here's how it works - your odds of winning are pretty dang good:
- We sell 1,000 tickets only ($20 each).
- 365 Winners are drawn - daily winning is $20.
- Special winnings on New Years Day $500, Tax Day $250, 4th of July $250, Labor Day $250, Christmas Day $500, seven other holidays are $100 winners.
- Every ticket drawn is thrown back in the hat so you can win multiple times.
- If your raffle number isn't drawn, you've supported one 1st grader in Rochester attending My Book Day - getting a tour of the library, their own book, a book bag and a library pass, and our international service projects in Guatemala, Nigeria and Honduras.
More details are available if you have any questions. If interested, send contact a Rochester Rotary Riser!
 
Congratulations to June raffle winners and thank you for supporting Rotary and our efforts in childhood literacy!
Here is an update on the three club World Community Service Team from Mike Neumann, who chairs this team and represents the Risers:
 
It’s been a great Rotary year for the WCS Team.   With your help we’ve accomplished the following:
  • Continued to monitor progress on our two Global Grants that are underway
  • Generated a new Water Sensor - District Grant of $12,500
  • Supported other club projects in the district (Mankato and Arden Hills)
  • Helped with funding refugees in Uganda (tele-med / rabbit)
  • Generated District Grant Proposal Uganda (attached)
  • Managed our funds prudently and spent nearly all the monies allocated for WCS (one of our objectives)
Thanks, Mike!
