Why Join Rotary?

Rotarians are business and community leaders who take an active role in their communities while greatly enriching their personal and professional lives. A Rotary club contains a diverse group of active leaders from the community that the club serves. A Rotary club can have a significant effect on the quality of life in our communities. In addition, programs of The Rotary Foundation offer opportunities to form international partnerships that help people in need worldwide. Rotary clubs are nonpolitical, nonreligious, and open to all cultures, races, and creeds.  Important aspects of Rotary membership are mentorship, friendship, Service Above Self, and leadership.  More than 1.2 million Rotarians make significant contributions to the quality of life at home and around the globe.

Dr. Barbara McDonald, President of North Hennepin Community College (NHCC), visited our Club on November 4th and gave us an update on NHCC.  Jennifer Summer-Lambrecht, Executive Director of Advancement at NHCC, supported Dr. McDonald.
Our guest speaker on October 7, 2015 was Victoria Karpel, President/CEO of the Legacy Family Center.  Victoria discussed her plans to provide Brooklyn Park families with comprehensive family resources and services including early child education programs with extended hours for parents/caregivers who work nontraditional hours and coupling that with social services.  Note that there were problems with the projection system so Rotarians Gary Brown and Kevin Weist helped her with her presentation.
Bob Wharton was the guest speaker at our Club meeting this morning and gave a very interesting presentation about the Lions Club organization and what they do. Bob has been a Lions Club Chairman, District Governor and Convention Chair. He is a neighbor of Rotarian Duane Jones.
Deb Loon, Executive Director of Avenues for Homeless Youth, was our guest speaker on September 16th and gave us an update on the status of the new shelter for homeless youth in Brooklyn Park- Brooklyn Avenues.  We presented Deb with a ceremonial check in the amount of $15,000 that represents our Club donation to Brooklyn Avenues for this year.  Shown in the picture are Daryll Cameron, Club Foundation President; Rich Lehman, Foundation Treasurer; Deb, and Duane Jones, Foundation Secretary.
Our exchange student, Eduardo, attended the Rotary North Star Youth Exchange Inbound Orientation in Roseville on Saturday, September 12th.  It was a great session for the exchange students and for the host families.  Approximately 60 exchange students from all over the world attended.  Eduardo met some fellow students from Brazil and introduced a fellow student from Croatia during one of the meetings.  It was a great morning for all of us.
Our exchange student, Eduardo, attended the Club Social at the Minnesota Twins game on Monday night- his first baseball game ever!  We all had a great evening plus the Twins beat Detroit 7 to 1.  Twins player Joe Mauer had a good night since both Eduardo and Rotarian Rich Lehman wore Joe Mauer tee-shirts!
Rotarian Jim Dow was our guest speaker at our meeting on September 9th.  Jim gave a very interesting presentation on the recent river cruise that he and his wife Pat took in Russia.  Jim and Pat loved the cruise and recommended it to all of us.
