WELCOME The Fargo-Moorhead AM Rotary Club was chartered in 1991 with 25 members. We meet Thursdays at 7:00 AM at the Delta by Marriott (formerly Ramada Plaza Suites), 1635 42nd Street South, Fargo. Our club is an energetic bunch that enjoys fellowship, even at that early hour. Feel free to browse our site and learn more about our club, our causes, and what makes our organization great. See you Thursday morning!

FM AM Rotary Clubs Mission:

The FM AM Rotary Club works to improve the lives of children locally, regionally and globally.

 
 
What's New With Fargo-Moorhead AM Rotary?

Because of our commitment to International Projects, we have been honored by receiving this plaque in recognition of the time, talent and treasure we have committed.

 

9 club members volunteered their time to build a shed for Legacy Children's Foundation, this includes our soon-to-apply member, David. We got some expert help from Shane Cullen, a RTFMA board member and Larry's wife, Diane put in an afternoon. Steve from Lampert Lumber is going to trim out the door, install a rollup door, and move it further back into the corner of the fence. All of this was completed in one week! Shows what Rotary can accomplish. Thank you everyone that participated for Being the Inspiration!

 

NOVEMBER 29 - With it being the fifth Thursday of the Month, we held our club social.  Rotarians answered questions like, would you rather be parentally transported to 500 years in the past or 500 years in the future? Would you rather wear a shirt one size to small or one two times too big for the rest of your life?  I learned a lot about the members at my table.  Also, we cognized Alicia H. with her first Paul Harris Fellow.  Alicia has been active delivering on our mission to positively impact youth locally, regionally and globally by submitting two global grants and leading the effort to create a microloan program.  Thank you Alicia for Being the Inspiration!
 
NOVEMBER 15 - Nearly 30 gathered to learn how the Rotary Foundation impacts people, locally, regionally and globally.  Keith Brokke shared some of his experiences, building schools, water wells, and other humanitarian projects made possible through the Rotary Foundation.
 
PAUL HARRIS FELLOW - Please join me in congratulating Gene for becoming a Paul Harris Fellow +1 and T.J. Paul Harris Fellow +3.  Thank you for your commitment to The Rotary Foundation!
 

 

NOVEMBER 8 - Another great start to a Thursday!  In a partnership with the PM Rotary Club, we are hosting a foreign exchange student.  This year's student, Ximena, comes from Guatemala.  This past week, she shared what life is like in her native country.  I learned Guatemala was settled by Spain and 23 Mayan languages/dialects are still spoken today. Ximena is part of a small group to be the first Rotary foreign exchange students .  Until this year, her district did not participate in the program.    Ximena is enjoying her time and looks forward to seeing more snow.

After graduation, she plans to study architecture in France.  As an avid learner and straight A student, she is sure to be creating world-class buildings soon.

In today’s world one in four victims of slavery are children, and 10 million children are considered slaves!  300,000 child soldiers are forced to fight wars, 700 million women alive today are married as children and 17.2 million children are working as domestic workers. A new partnership with the Rotary Action Group Against Slavery and Freedom United is giving Rotarians a chance to do something to stop it.  Freedom United is a nonprofit organization that has mobilized millions of partners, activists and advocates through online campaigns to convince governments and companies to end slavery.  
 
Through its website, Rotary clubs of any size can sign up to form “freedom rings,” which raise community awareness of slavery while sharing information with one another through an online platform.  Freedom United helps Rotary clubs plan a two-hour community event by arranging speakers that can include experts, survivors, and representatives of local nonprofits that are already fighting modern slavery.  One of these rings in Chattanooga, Tennessee is planning a gala fundraiser; in Raleigh, NC a walk/run to raise awareness is planned.  And another ring is organizing a “red sand project,” where volunteers sprinkle red sand in the cracks of city streets to represent all the people in the world who are enslaved.  And in Johnson City, New York – purple pinwheels were planted in a major traffic circle.
 
Support from People in Action to The Rotary Foundation enables this to happen.  Thank you.
