Rotarians Rake Leaves for Seniors!!
Rotarians gathered on Saturday morning Nov 4, bringing rakes and blowers to attack the pile and piles of colorful leaves at the homes of three lucky Chanhassen senior citizens.
Despite the chill in the air, the project was enjoyed by Rotarians, and the seniors were left with leaf free yards. 
Our member Kara Hegg attended the meeting today with her father Andy McCaskey. Kara was able to help Humanity Alliance by securing the donation of a badly needed truck. We are so proud of her!!

It’s always a good time when Rotarians get together and the open house celebration on April 26 was no exception. Attendees were welcomed with open arms and the atmosphere was filled with excitement as they mingled and shared their enthusiasm for volunteerism and joining our club.

Fellowship was a major highlight of the event as members and guests bonded over their shared passions and interests. There were plenty of opportunities for networking, socializing and making new connections all while enjoying delicious refreshments and snacks.

Rotarians shared their experiences of working on various community projects and highlighted the positive impact they had made. Many answered questions and provided information about the club's activities and benefits.

You are welcome to join the Rotary Club of Chanhassen, too. For more information reach out to Membership Director KC Ahrens at kahrens@hjlawfirm.com or visit us for breakfast at our weekly meeting Wednesdays, 7 a.m. at the Chanhassen Legion.
