Welcome to the Rotary eClub of District 5960!

Rotary supports many different areas of focus, which tend to work together well. We focus on supporting education, providing clean water, promoting peace, saving mothers and children, growing local economies, and fighting disease.

Polio was one of the most dreaded childhood diseases of the 20th century in the United States. Periodic epidemics had occurred since the late 19th century, but they had increased in size and frequency in the late 1940’s and early 1950’s. An average of over 35,000 cases were reported during this time period.

In 1955, 13,850 cases of paralytic polio were reported in the United States. Twenty-year-old Marilyn Lang of Shakopee was one of those cases. The following is an interview with Marilyn by Tom Melchior, as part of the Scott County Historical Society’s Greatest Generation project (Read by Kathy Haubrich – daughter).

Kathy reads her mother’s moving story as written by Tom Melchior, as part of the Scott County Historical Society’s Greatest Generation project. Marilyn was diagnosed with Polio at age 20 and lived with the disease for over 60 years.

S.T.R.I.P.E.S has been a successful program at Irondale High School in Mounds View Minnesota because of the efforts of Dean of Equity Services, Marvin Sims. Sims has developed the S.T.R.I.P.E.S program to address the achievement gap at District high schools. Transforming at risk kids into successful students who are prepared for college or other life ventures is what (S.T.R.I.P.E.S), Students Together Respecting the Importance and Purpose of Education in Schools, is all about.

I Read for Need is an elementary school reading program, developed by Dr. Greg Ulrich, that encourages the love of reading, by giving students the opportunity to earn cash for the charity of their choice.

eClub Meeting 15 – Stripes & I Read for Need 2016-03-28 05:00:00Z 0

Welcome to the Rotary eClub of District 5960!

Rotary supports many different areas of focus, which tend to work together well. We focus on supporting education, providing clean water, promoting peace, saving mothers and children, growing local economies, and fighting disease.

In today’s eClub meeeting, we will again focus on saving pollinators. Go back to Meeting #3 to learn more about our collaborative efforts with the National Park Service, the US Forest Service, and the US Fish and Wildlife Service – attempting to get Rotarians all over the world to sign the pollinator pledge, make pollinator habitat restoration and creation a priority, and educating others about this critical issue facing the world.

Rotary District 5960, under the leadership of Governor Marlene Gargulak, has joined with the National Park Service, US Forest Service, and US Fish and Wildlife Service to use the influence of Rotary to educate communities about the issues facing pollinators and the support of Rotarians to make a difference in the fight to save them.

In the video below, you’ll meet Rob Davis from Fresh Energy and member of the Rotary eClub of District 5960.  Rob will be presenting – A Ray of Hope for Bees. He will also speak to us about creating pollinator habitats around solar panels.

Please watch the video below to complete your Rotary meeting or makeup.

District 5960 has been asked to support this important project by signing the Pollinator Pledge and by each club finding ways to support a sustainable Pollinator habitat in their community.

Possibilities include:

  • Planting a Pollinator Garden
  • Harvesting Milkweed Seeds for distribution
  • Educational Program about Pollinators

eClub Meeting 14 – Rob Davis – A Ray of Hope for Bees & Butterflies 2016-03-04 06:00:00Z 0

Welcome to the Rotary eClub of District 5960!

As we approach December 7th, 2015, we remember a day in 1941 when Japan attacked the America base at Pearl Harbor and Germany was advancing across Europe, leaving a path of death and destruction in its wake. Some 70 years later, those conflicts have been resolved, only to see new conflicts take shape. Every year there are new conflicts, wars, genocides…which begs the question, “is peace possible?”

Rotary has been working on peace initiatives for many years and has developed opportunities for schooling in conflict resolution. Rotary gives individuals to the opportunity to learn how to mediate our conflicts, negotiate or differences, and cooperate together for a common good.

Watch this video and leave feed back on what you can do to encourage peace in our time.

In the contact for below, provide 3 ideas you have for creating peace in the world. You can only accomplish so much, but together, we can accomplish a lot.
