The planning for our 2nd Speakeasy & Casino Night is underway!  Canterbury Park's Mezzanine level is the place to be, on March 23, 2019, in your 1920's and 1930's attire.  Our first event, earlier this year, was amazing and we hosted almost 400 guests, selling more than 400 tickets to the event!  You won't want to miss this year.  
 
Take a peak at this flier for more event details!  This year we will have the Twin Cities Jazz Cats to entertain you as well, so wear your dancing shoes!
 
Tickets can be purchased online or in person from a Shakopee Rotarian.
 
 
All proceeds will again be used for the various projects the Shakopee Rotary is involved in throughout the year.  The projects and donation requests we receive, are all within our community and the surrounding area.We appreciate you helping us, help our community!  Service above self!  
 
 
At our Tuesday meeting, September 16, 2018, we had the privilege of hearing from our current Youth Exchange Student, Juul Wallraf.  He shared with us a little about himself and where he is from in Belgium.  We are looking forward to having him here for the school year and the opportunity to share our traditions and fun, Minnesota experiences with him.  Thank you to the three families who will be hosting him this 2018/2019 school year.
 
During that meeting, we also got to hear from Carl Mattfeld, the German exchange student who was in Shakopee during the 2004-2005 school year.  Carl now lives and works in New York, for a thriving young company, and enjoys being a part of the United States culture, while still keeping his citizenship in Germany. Carl shared how much the Rotary Youth Exchange Program made a difference in his life.  He is grateful for the experience.  So much so, that he donated $500 to the Rotary Foundation!  We are also appreciative of him and the difference he is making both locally and internationally. 
It was another great night at Loaves & Fishes on August 7th, 2018, with our crew!  The first group prepared the food and the second group served and cleaned up.  What a great organization and opportunity to give back to our community directly.  We always enjoy the people and our time there.  http://www.loavesandfishesmn.org/index.html
 
Our 2nd annual, summer family picnic was a success on Tuesday, August 21, 2018!  It was a beautiful night to play games, make balloon creatures, get your caricature done and have root beer floats.  Thanks to Libby Bergen, Deb Erickson and their able assistants for planning such a fun event!
