You and a guest are invited to the pinnacle event of our STRIVE program - the annual Banquet and Awards program.  Keynote speaker this year is Mike Ackerman.  Mike has spent his adult lifetime serving the Cokato community in many different areas and most recently was recognized for his efforts with the 2017 Citizen of the Year award.  He has a great message for all of us to keep fighting, even when others say "I don't think you're gonna make it here."  Mike is an entertaining speaker will do a great job.

The students will read their personal statements, which will be the first time many of them have publicly addressed a group of that size.  Their parents are also invited and it is an opportunity to celebrate the successes of the past year.  The event is much more meaningful when we have a nice group of Rotarians attending.  As a club, we invest more time and money into this program than any other project.  Let's celebrate our good work.

Monday, April 30 - 6:00 PM at the Dassel History Center.  Dinner will be served right away and the program will follow.  Please RSVP so Mary knows how many people to plan for.  As always, spouses or another guest are highly encouraged to attend.

We will need some help setting up, serving the meal, and cleaning up afterwards.  Stay tuned to sign up for a time to help out.

We would like to give a small memento as a memory of this year and the STRIVE program.  If anyone has any suggestions for a small gift, I would welcome those!

Let Andy know if you have any questions or suggestions.  701-371-3151  or

Thank you for supporting these students and their accomplishments!
