Maple Grove Rotary News
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.

The Rotary Club of Maple Grove Uganda sewing center project is making great strides to fill a 40’ container to be shipped to one of the largest refugee centers in Uganda.  Your assistance is still needed to provide much needed supplies to help the refugees make a living and become financially independent by providing jobs and trade skills.  We are looking for other items besides sewing machines, material and notions for this project. 

The items for the container has also expanded to include:
Irons & ironing boards
Crutches
Bedding including sheets and blankets (flannel is okay)
Draperies & Curtains
Towels - will also be needed for making diapers (soakers)
Gardening tools-shovels, hand spades, rakes, kneelers,hoes,
Carpentry tools - hand tools & electric tools (we are getting a 'step down' machine for electrical conversion),hammers,pliers, screw drivers, wrenches ets
Children's clothing and shoes
Children's books and toys
Adult shoes
Bikes
 

Additional equipment and supplies will be accepted until September 17, 2017 as the 40’ container will leave Minnesota for Uganda in early October.  In December, several people from Minnesota will be traveling to Uganda to teach people how to sew and knit.

The Maple Grove Rotary Club hosted and celebrated the 100 years of the Rotary Foundation on July 29th, at the Town Green.  We celebrated with music, food, and a 5 layered tiered cake that was served to all in attendance.  The Rotary Foundation has spent more than $3 billion on projects that promote peace, fight disease, provide clean water, support education, save mothers and children and grow local economies.  Your local Maple Grove Rotary Club is comprised of community members like yourself with a passion for improving the world around them!   Our many projects include bed building for CROSS, providing shelter with "Shelter Box" for those people who have lost their homes due to  natural disasters, "Days for Girls" hygiene kits for girls to let them continue to attend school and Polio Plus, a Rotary focused project in conjunction with the Gates Foundation to educate and work to eradicate polio.
 
Thank you to the Maple Grove Ambassadors and all who joined us for a day of family fun with live music, a photo booth, bouncy house, food trucks and more!

Hey volunteers...We've sent out 1,910 kits so far!

Kits made here by volunteers in the Twin Cities have traveled to the following 16 countries:

Bangladesh, Cameroon, Congo, 
El  Salvador, Gambia, Ghana, Guatemala, Haiti, India, Kenya, 
Liberia, Senegal, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda, Vietnam


We can't thank you enough for the difference you are making in the lives of women and girls around the globe.  Your contributions matter!  
I'm happy to report that my home, once filled with completed kits, is now empty.  All the completed kits have been distributed!  But don't worry, we'll keep making them.

What's next?  Filling a shipping container with sewing supplies, of course.
