STRIVE Steak, Shrimp and Walleye Dinner March 18, 2018

Thank you to all that joined us at the fundraiser.  The STRIVE program has proven to be successful in motivating about 70 students each year who are academically at risk. We mentor them and help turn their lives around. Over the past 14 years, 84% of the STRIVE participants have significantly increased their GPA’s and over 60% have gone on to college and technical schools. Not bad for kids who stood a chance of not graduating from high school. 
STRIVE recognizes and rewards students who show the greatest improvement in their grades during their senior year of high school by giving the scholarships to college and technical school.
Your generous donation, along with about 17 volunteer mentors (each donating over two hours/month) means a great deal to the STRIVE participants. The cost for this program is $7,000 per year for scholarships, $1,500 for the materials and the celebration banquet. All of which is paid for by the Maple Grove Rotary Club when we collect donations at events like this.
All family and friends are welcome!
We are very proud of our partners who match our scholarship dollars when the kids attend North Hennepin Community College, Anoka Ramsey Community College, Dunwoody College of Technology, Hennepin Technical College. 
If you would like to become a sponsor, please look at our different levels for your tax deductible donation. The form is on the left tool bar under Event Forms.
Thank You! 

To help provide beds for local children and families in need, the Rotary Club of Maple Grove has been building 20 beds to deliver to CROSS Services The Maple Grove Quilters are providing original hand-made quilts to go with every bed. 

Each summer, the Maple Grove Rotary Bed Race is held during Maple Grove Days. Funds raised, along with a grant from Rotary District 5950, are used to help build the beds - complete with mattresses, mattress covers, sheet sets, blankets and pillows. Books, including coloring books and teddy bears made by Rotary member Judy Johnson, are delivered on top of the beds. 

“When the Maple Grove Quilters were asked to make quilts for the Rotary Club beds, we were delighted to pitch in,” Maple Grove Quilters member Peg Lindberg said. “Each quilt is uniquely made by one or more of our members to provide warmth, comfort, and vibrant color for a special child. We are thrilled to know our quilts, along with their new beds, will help children define their unique, comfortable personal spaces within their homes.” 

Local families in need are identified by CROSS Services. The beds are delivered and assembled by Maple Grove Rotarians and Quilters. 

“It’s been a privilege to make and deliver these beds to needy children,” Maple Grove Rotarian Jim Betzold said, “Our reward comes when we get a hug and thank you from the family and smiles from the children’s faces.”

The Rotary Club of Maple Grove hosted it's 27th annual fundraising gala at the Marriott North West on Saturday November 18th.  A fun filled night was had by all. With a fun balloon burst and many raffles to trips, restaurants and spirits.
We want to thank the many members, friends, family, community and business leaders that attended as well as contributed to the event.  We have many projects that make a difference in the local community as well as internationally and we couldn't do any of them without the funding this event provides.
We also want to thank our many sponsors who supported this event.  Without their support, we would not have been so successful in our fundraising efforts. We encourage our members and the public to recognize these businesses as they are visited and supported. See our Gala Sponsors on the left tool bar. Consider being a sponsor for next year!
Our club embodies the international motto of Service Above Self and follows the guiding principles of providing humanitarian service, encouraging high ethical standards in all vocations, and building good will and peace in the world.
On behalf of the Rotary Club of Maple Grove
Thank you!!
The Rotary Club of Maple Grove, working with the Maple Grove Park Service, donated and planted 61 trees on Friday, October 6 th . The tree planting was in support of a Rotary International Challenge to have a tree planted for every member of the club. The trees were planted around the practice fields at the Maple Grove Middle School Community Playfield. Members were taught how to plant the potted trees correctly to avoid tree girdling, then filled
pre-dug holes with trees and soil.
