Fostering a greater sense of purpose in the world

Fostering a greater sense of purpose in the world
Dan Neitz, COR Founder/Principal

COR is about creating experiences that allow us to pragmatically connect with this same sense. Real engagement gives people a sense of this point within themselves. Successful leaders ensure that what ever mission they give to their team that the act of fulfilling the mission will also give their team a sense of this point within them.

Kathie's Coffee | Coffee for a Cause Coffee for a Cause

Inspired by my mom, Kathie, who built her community and relationships over cups of coffee.  Whether weekends meeting family and friends for coffee or weekdays taking a coffee break with coworkers, she enjoyed each cup and connection.  Every bag purchased helps raise awareness and funds for Pancreatic Cancer.

Educational Services in Africa

Educational Services in Africa
Rick Olson, President/Founder - Best Future Center
Educational Services in Africa

"The specific purpose of this corporation is to support humanitarian, educational and informational services to individuals in poverty in Africa, initially, but not limited to, through Best Future Center in the Nakivale Refugee Settlement in Uganda. "  For more information on the organization visit Best Future Centre Projects on Facebook. 

For the month of November 2021 we will be meeting at 925 in Wayzata from 7:45-9:00am
As we've discussed, we are using this time, while we can not meet at Wayzata Country Club, to experiment with meeting times and locations for our club.  Our goal is to find the time and location that works for our existing members and encourages new members to join.  
We love the option of meeting at Wayzata Sailing Club but have not been able to find a vendor that is willing to cater our meals.  If you have a contact, please pass the information on to Anita Miller-Rieder, as she has graciously offered to help us with this challenge. 

Light of Hope Kenya

Light of Hope Kenya
Erin Quinn, Director of Marketing & Development

Throughout the developing world, a girl may suffer from a litany of injustices that arise out of gender inequality. Child marriage, denial of education, gender-based violence – they limit her choices and trap her in the cycle of poverty. That’s why we’re committed to empowering Kenyan girls and, in doing so, contributing to the global effort to end intergenerational poverty. We do that by providing care, shelter, counseling, and education to the orphaned, abandoned, abused, and neglected Kenyan girls we serve.  More importantly, we instill in them the belief that they have value, foster confidence in their leadership abilities, and give them the tools they need to reach their fullest potential. In 2006, we welcomed seven girls to Light of Hope Home & School in Naivasha, Kenya. Today, we serve more than 80 – and we’re continuing to grow.

Community Engagement

Michael Risvold, Senior Administrative Manager at Hennepin County's Sheriff's Office/Former Wayzata Chief of Police

A major function of the Community Outreach Division is the The Sheriff's Office Community Engagement Team (CET). CET leads our agency’s efforts to build communities of trust among multi-cultural communities. The team includes the Sheriff and civilian community liaisons. The team interacts with residents in several world languages.

Our CET responds to residents' concerns, works to build lasting relationships, and develops crime prevention initiatives in a culturally-specific manner.

Our CET members provide outreach to many different diverse communities. We meet with residents at businesses, schools, and community events. Residents also enjoy visiting Sheriff’s Office facilities to learn about our work during culturally-specific One Day Citizen Academies. The CET and residents identify public safety concerns and collaborate on proactive solutions.

District Governor Marianna Khauv

A member of the Monticello Rotary Club since 1994, Marianna Khauv has long been putting service above self. Marianna has served as the club's secretary, international service chair and president. Additionally, she served as a member of the District Grant Committee from 2013-2019 and as Rotary District 5950 Area 13 assistant governor from 2016 to 2019.

Marianna was born in Taiwan and immigrated to the United States with her parents at age thirteen. She did not speak English and was amazed by the new culture and environment, especially snow and below zero temperatures!

Marianna and her husband, Onn, have called Monticello home since 1991. Not only have they raised their three daughters, Malinda, Amanda and Olivia, in Monticello, they have also been business owners in the community. With the success of their restaurant and hotel businesses, they soon started finding ways to volunteer to give back to their growing and supportive community. Marianna's theme as the chair of Monticello Chamber of Commerce in 1999 was “U” and “I” working in “Unity” for a better “CommUnIty.” This has also been Marianna’s approach to Rotary, both locally and globally.

Together, with the help from the Rotary Clubs of Alexandria, Buffalo, St. Michael & Albertville, and Monticello, Marianna was able to build a total of three libraries for

schools in rural villages of Cambodia where there is no running water or electricity. To Marianna, this is a true testimony of the power and potential of people working together, of Rotary!

A huge thank you to this year's Presenting Sponsor, Borton Volvo.  This generous sponsorship is helping to cover our concert costs so that proceeds from concert food and beverage sales will go directly to Wayzata Rotary Charitable Foundation and will be distributed back out in to our community through community grants.
