Posted by Clare Richards, District Rotaract Chair

Did you know our district has a strong Rotaract presence? For those unfamiliar, Rotaract 
is a part of the Rotary family that brings together people ages 18 and older to exchange ideas with leaders in the community, develop leadership and professional skills, and have fun through service. In communities worldwide, Rotary and Rotaract members work side by side to take action through service. 

We currently have two Rotaract clubs in District 5950:
SaintCloud Rotaract (est. in 2015) and the Rotaract Club of Edina (est. in 2018).

Rotaract is incredibly important to our district as a way to introduce the Rotary vision to a younger generation. Rotaract members are emerging and energetic leaders who aim to make a difference in their communities. Building strong connections with these members is also a great way to build a pipeline of future Rotarians.

Both clubs have already made a difference through service and action. I look forward to telling you stories about each club in upcoming newsletters. In the meantime, if you are curious about Rotaract or interested in starting a Rotaract club in your community, I encourage you to email Clare Richards at

Follow both clubs on Facebook to keep up with the fun, impactful work our emerging leaders are doing!
