the Veterans Rotary Club of Minnesota

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.

STRIVE is in full force

The 2016-17 STRIVE program is underway. Susan Conrad  is the Mentor Coordinator and Official Cheerleader/Whip Cracker of the Chanhassen High School STRIVE program. Many of the Chanhassen Rotary members are involved as mentors along with other community members. STRIVE is a one-on-one mentoring and scholarship program sponsored by the Rotary Club of Chanhassen at Chanhassen High School.  It offers students incentives for reaching their potential. Students are selected by their counselors for having high potential that is not reflected in their academic progress. Once each month, Chanhassen Business leaders (who are all volunteers), attend one hour sessions with students. These sessions include topics such as time management, getting organized, networking, job interview preparation, goal setting, etc. They talk about grades and school attendance, offering support to help students succeed. The mentors may also meet students at special programs or present opportunities beyond the regular meetings. Students who participate in STRIVE are eligible for post-secondary scholarships  at technical schools as well as four year universities and colleges."
If you have questions about STRIVE or interest in participation please contact Susan Conrad susan@mtmad.com
