The meeting was called to order by President Josh Moenning.

Stan Christensen requested that all members go to the Music in the Park Facebook page and invite their friends to the first concert which will be held on Thursday, June 18, with Soul Dawg performing.  The goal is to get 5,000 invitations sent out.

Dave Cox announced that a ham dinner benefit will be held at St. John’s Lutheran Church on Sunday, April 26, from noon until 2pm.  A free will offering will be accepted.  The dinner is to thank the approximately 20 Mennonite workers who have been building homes in Pilger for the tornado victims.

Josh said that Mike Fuehrer of the Norfolk Area Sports Council would be contacting the Rotary Club again to ask about using the Rotary’s insurance policy to cover an all-star game this summer.

Connie Kube introduced Susie Buss, Executive Director of the Teammates mentoring program.  Susie was accompanied by approximately 20 students who are Teammates mentees.  They each shared what they appreciate about Teammates and Susie gave an overview of the program.  She said the goal of the mentors is to meet with their mentees at least 24 weeks per school year.  Scholarships are offered to Teammates participants for college each year.  In addition to meeting after school, they do outside activities such as attending the NU spring football game.  The organization was started in 1991 by Tom and Nancy Osborne.  There are currently 118 TM matches in Norfolk and there is always a need for more mentors.

Next week’s program will be presented by Paula Pflueger, Chairman of The Great American Comedy Festival board.
