"It was the best week ever." That is what we heard from Ella & Jaime, the two students sponsored by the FM PM club to attend Camp RYLA.
The District 5580 Camp RYLA (Rotary Youth Leadership Award Camp) is a week-long immersion leadership program for high school seniors and juniors that takes place in Crookston, MN. 
My name is Chris Figureida and I run a nonprofit program called Cycle for Heart.  The Rotary Club of Ventura, in Ventura CA, and myself would like to ask if any of your club members would be gracious enough to host me for two nights on Wednesday September 2nd and Thursday September 3rd? Cycle for Heart is where I bicycle across the USA; collaborating with the American Heart Association, I stop at elementary, middle, and high schools, colleges and universities, to give free presentations to the students about living a healthy and active lifestyle. 
The FM PM Rotary participated in the Great Plains Food Bank Packathon on Wednesday, September 9th from 2-3 p.m. The Packathon is an annual two day event hosted by the food bank, running from September 9-10. We packed over 500 pounds of edible beans into two pound bags in less than an hour and contributed $450 to the food bank. Thank you to everyone who participated!

Dear Fellow Rotarians and Goodwill Attendees, Come One! Come All! 
The 90th Annual Goodwill Weekend (initiated by the Rotary Clubs of Winnipeg) is coming this September to Winnipeg, The planning committee is hard at week to make this a full weekend of fellowship, networking and goodwill between our district and the adjacent districts in the United States.

Marsha is a native South Dakotan and transferring Rotarian. She works with Girl Scouts of America here in Fargo and loves to cycle. We look forward to getting to know Marsha and getting her involved in Rotary in the F-M area. Welcome to North Dakota, and welcome to the FMPM Club!
It's the annual Football Books Fundraiser!
If you're a fan of football or a fan of money, then you should be a fan of the Football Books. The FM-AM Club is again allowing us to partner with them for the month of August to raise money for our service projects by selling gaming books to friends, family and colleagues. The books sell for $25. The buyer is then entered into a drawing each week to win $50 based on the final game score of the Monday Night Football game. Superbowl halftime is $50 and final score is $100. Winners are automatically notified and sent a check in the mail. Easy and fun! The first Monday night game is Sept. 14 when the Philadelphia Eagles play the Atlanta Falcons at 6:10 CST. The Vikings take on the 49ers at 9:10 pm
Governor Craig Loughery and his Rotarian wife Diane visited Fargo last Monday as part of their six-month tour of every club in Rotary District 5580. The governor and first lady met with the board of directors before the meeting to discuss what's new in Rotary and learn more about our three-year-old club.
Apples, Apples, Apples!
The kids at CHARISM Community program in Fargo were Making their Neighborhoods Better by learning the Rotary Four-Way Test last week and hosting a community orchard dedication on Thursday, July 23 at McCormick Park, 2101 9th Ave S, Fargo.
​FMPM Literacy Chair Meagan McDougall, along with FMPM Vice President Deborah Maertens and FMPM Foundation Chair Kriss Burns helped to coordinate efforts with CHARISM to host the free-will offering picnic.  An Apple Basket filled with apple-related items was raffled to raise additional funds. Approximately 100 people attended the event, including the CHARISM campers, volunteers and staff, CHARISM board members, area Rotarians and McCormick Park residents. 
After the picnic, the FMWF Chamber of Commerce conducted a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new orchard. The two trees FMPM donated last summer were planted, with plans for cherry, plum and apricot trees to join them in the near future, thanks to a grant from the North Dakota USDA. The Blue Angels also made an appearance as the jets practiced maneuvers overhead in preparation for last weekend's Fargo AirSho. The kids then presented some of their apple-picking inventions and apple business plans before serving the crowd apple dumplings and ice cream  for dessert. Enjoy the photos from the event by clicking on the photo album.
The winner of the Apple Basket was Tracy Arntson (left) visiting from Killeen, TX. "The kids were so excited and I can't believe the beautiful garden they have created. What an amazing partnership."

Every year in Rotary, the new international President, District Governors and Club Presidents assume leadership July 1. The governor spends his or her year traveling the district visiting each club and spending time with the leadership of those clubs. It's a huge job! Tonight we are honored to have Governor Craig Loughery from Ely Rotary Club visiting us to talk about membership, his vision for the year and to learn about our club.
Board members will meet at 4:30 pm at Lucky's 13 Pub for a pre-meeting with the Governor.

What the heck is ClubRunner? And why does Darcy keep telling me to use it?
It's a webpage, it's a file cabinet, it's a scrapbook, it's a directory. ClubRunner is the online club management software we pay for each year to help us keep everything (and everyone!) organized. But sometimes it's slow and cumbersome. You have to login to take advantage of its features, and then you'll probably have to take an evening to play around to figure out what it's capable of. 
My goal is to get us all using ClubRunner. Here's why:
