District 5950 (which is the Rotary District our club belongs to) is launching The Rotary Club of Minnesota Veterans!  This will be the first Rotary Club for veterans serving veterans in the world! You are invited to become one of the founding members of this new club, which will give you an unique opportunity to connect with other veterans and business leaders while serving our local communities together and helping those in need. The meetings are scheduled for the second and fourth Thursdays of each month, at St. Peters Edina:  5421 France Avenue South, Edina, Minnesota 55410; and, will run from 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.  Rotary is non-religious and non-political organization - we are simply using the facility because of the generosity of its Pastor, Mark Shockey, who is a former Rotarian of 30 years.  The first meeting will take place on September 12th and will include a discussion of our guiding principles – Camaraderie, Service, and Peace – along with sharing ideas for projects and events we would like to participate in. You can download the Club Brochure and membership Application for the Veterans Club in the download area on the righthand side of this  home page.    If you would like to be a part of this amazing new Rotary Club and have the opportunity to help shape the mission of the group, please complete the attached application and return it timely to Tom Gump at:  tagump@gmail.com.
Since its founding in 1987, the Rotary Club of Chanhassen has been dedicated to Rotary International's mission to provide service to others, promote high ethical standards, and to advance world understanding, goodwill and peace through its fellowship of business, professional and community leaders.
