What's Happening
From a recent St Cloud Times News Article:

From a recent St. Cloud Times news article:

CentraCare Health and St. Cloud State University announced recently a partnership to open the Center for Health Outcome Policy Research. 

The center is believed to be the first research center at a public university that doesn't have an affiliated medical school.

Research is expected to begin in January and will eventually be housed in Eastman Hall. 

The center will include CentraCare employees and St. Cloud State faculty, graduate and undergraduate students. 

Faculty from St. Cloud State's School of Health and Human Services and School of Public Affairs will support the program

Join us for an Evening of Erudtion in the de Tocqueville Tradition.  Tuesday, October 30 - 6:00 - 10:00 pm.  At the home of Tarryl and Doug Clark (2511 15th Street North).  We will be reviewing and discussing two books, Separate and Unequal, the Kerner Report and Between the World and Me, by Coates.  For more information, contact Michael Mullin (michaelallenmullin@gmail.com) or by phone at 320-224-4492.
 
 
A note from Gary Strandemo
 
On our recent trip to Saint Petersburg and Moscow, we were able to spend 2 days in Velicky Novgorod, visiting recent NSYE student Alisa Krasnova and her family.  Alisa, who is attending University in Saint Petersburg sends her thanks to our club for sponsoring her this past school year.  A very historical city, Novgorod was the most important commercial and religious center of what became the European part of Russia in the 9th-12th Centuries before the domination of Moscow.
 
We met with the Novgorod Rotary Club and some Rotaract members.  Over dinner we shared conversation and dialogue about our two clubs and our countries.  They have a small club, and Youth Exchange is their major project.  Last year they had an inbound student from Belgium and this year from Mexico.  Their outbound student this year has gone to Italy.

The GSDC Community Catalyst Award recognizes a company or organization that is a leader in initiating and supporting economic and community development in the Greater St. Cloud region.   The 2018 recipient is Rotary Club of St. Cloud.  The organization is recognized for its commitment to improving the quality of life in the greater St. Cloud region through recent projects such as, the renovation of Lake George/Eastman Park, partnership with the St. Cloud Public Safety Foundation to build the Community Outpost (COP House), supporting the St. Cloud Riverwalk Project, hosting the weekly summer music festive, Summertime by George!, and partnering to open a resource center for homeless youth, Pathways 4 Youth.
Officials estimate up to 150 16- to 23-year-olds are homeless in St. Cloud each day. Research and discussions over the past few years with local social service agencies, law enforcement, and school systems proved there was a growing need for a resource center in the community.

Acknowledging there was an unmet community need, the St. Cloud Rotary Club has partnered with other local Rotary clubs to open a 3,700-square-foot daytime resource center. Pathways 4 Youth (P4Y) will connect teens to social services, medical professionals, lockers, showers, laundry facilities, food, clothing and a mailing address.  The center will open in April 2018 and is anticipated to serve 20-25 youth on a daily basis. Community members and stakeholders had the oppurtunity to learn more about how the center will impact the lives of homeless youth in the community.

Rotarians celebrate the grand opening of the St. Cloud Rotary Community OutPost on August 18th.  The open house was the culmination of two years work between the St. Cloud Police Department, the Greater St. Cloud Public Safety Foundation, numerous service organizations, educational partners and local companies. The total cost of the project is an estimated $400,000 with $250,000 coming from in-kind services and $150,000 in cash donations. The Rotary Club of St. Cloud provided the lead gift of $75,000.
