Nominations must be submitted by the end of this week--June 4.
Each June, our club recognizes two exemplary individuals for their service. The Club's Board of Directors determine the winners each year. Any club member can submit a written nomination to the club president.
They are the Mark Sathe Service Above Self Award (to a Rotarian) and the Gil Braun Community Service Award (to a community member).
About the Gil Braun Community Service Award:
This award is presented annually by the St. Louis Park Rotary Club to someone who has provided exemplary leadership and service to the community of St. Louis Park. Gil Braun was a successful retail businessman and a long time Rotarian who gave of his time and philanthropy to the community. He supported Rotary International's Polio Campaign along with the St. Louis Park Rotary Foundation. When SLP Schools Superintendent. Carl Holmstrom spoke to our club about what was needed for the high school, Gil was one of two key individuals who stepped forward to assist in the start-up of Children First. Wayne Packard and Gil Braun were instrumental in the launch of Children First 25 years.
About the Mark Sathe Service Above Self Award:
Rotary’s highest honor recognizes Rotarians who demonstrate Rotary’s motto, “Service Above Self”, by volunteering their time and talents to help others. The St. Louis Park Rotary Club initiated the Mark Sathe Service Above Self Award for a lifetime of service following Mark’s passing in October 2007 after a long battle with cancer. Mark was only 59 years old. He served as SLP Rotary Club president in 2001- 2002 and was a champion advocate for Rotary at local and international levels and for St. Louis Park youth service. He supported many youth initiatives in addition to supporting The Rotary Foundation and our St. Louis Park Rotary Foundation. To all club members, we were “his” friend. He was passionate about serving others. He never was interested in getting recognized for his efforts. He always felt doing the right thing WAS the right thing to do. In 2008, there was overwhelming support by the club to initiate this award.

St. Louis Park Rotary, since 1947, has developed a reputation as one of the friendliest Rotary clubs in the state.
“Mondays Matter,” as past president, Pastor David Landt once stated. Our Monday noontime meetings at the convenient Doubletree  by Hilton Hotel - Park Place, located near Hwy 394 and Xenia/Park Place, include a full lunch and a lineup of quality speakers. If you want to learn about things you would never be exposed to, come to our club, meet great professional and civic leaders, and listen to our excellent speakers.
Rotary is a wonderful organization that believes in making the world a better place to live, both locally and worldwide.  St. Louis Park Rotary founded the nationally-acclaimed initiative called "Children First." This movement was birthed in our club and we aggressively support it some two decades later. We mentor St. Louis Park high school students and also support STEP (St. Louis Park Emergency Service Program) to make sure there is food for those in need.
In addition to our humanitarian commitments, we enjoy and benefit from fellowship with people from all walks of life. If you are interested in weekly lunch meetings, featuring great food, great fellowship, great speakers and helping to make our world in St. Louis Park and beyond, a better place, come and check us out.
Lunches start 11:45 a.m. most every Monday at the Doubletree Hotel at 1500 Park Place, St. Louis Park. The official meeting runs 12:00-1:00pm. We would love to meet you.
