Days for Girls International

 

Glenwood's Sew-A-Thon

Days for Girls International empowers women and girls around the globe providing sustainable feminine hygiene solutions and health education. Judy Johnson spoke at our club on January 31 about empowering women on the international level. After the rotary meeting, there was a  Sew-A-Thon at Glenwood United Parish Church.  Over the next two and one half hours the good people of Glenwood completed 120 packs.  Great job Glenwood!!  These packs will change the lives of futures leaders from around the world.
5950 Jeopardy Winner..... Uganda!

5950 JEOPARDY

Four Glenwood Rotary teams put their knowledge to the test for a good cause playing the game of 5950 Jeopardy.  It was a close contest with Team Four (4)  of Jeanne, Amy, Barb, Kirk and Joe coming from behind to win by .5 of a point. It was all for a good cause with the prize money going to the Uganda project. Oh, did I fail to mention the money involved in this game and that each team had a choice of what to do with the money.  Of course one of the choices was to keep the money themselves but like all good Rotarian each team selected to contribute to the Uganda Project.  Another benefits of the 5950 Jeopardy game was the information we gained about District 5950.  In all it was a fun meeting. I would like to thank Irene Kelly for taking the time to come to our meeting and inform us about the things the district can do for the Glenwood Rotary Club and the many leadership opportunities we have at the district level.
Brush up on your Rotary knowledge as Irene Kelly will put you to task with 5950 District version of the popular game show "Jeopardy". This is just FUN!!! - See more at: http://glenwoodmnrotaryclub.com/speakers/b97000b6-d934-49f8-bf50-0aff691dbaca/#sthash.U4IQIwOr.dpuf
STRIVE for Excellence

Strive for Excellence

Youth mentoring is a key part of many Rotary clubs’ service efforts.  What better way have we to make an impact upon our communities, an impact that will last for generations to come!
STRIVE is a youth mentoring program that was developed by White Bear Lake Rotarian Don Mooney.  He started the program in his local high school, and soon thereafter his Rotary club picked up on it.  Since that time STRIVE has migrated to Rotary clubs throughout the world.

 

 
While STRIVE and other youth mentoring programs will vary from club to club, a common STRIVE model includes:
  • inviting the bottom third of the high school senior class to be matched with a Rotary mentor,
  • meeting at a STRIVE group at the school monthly,
  • awarding scholarships based upon % improvement in cumulative GPA
  • holding an awards banquet for STRIVE students and their families.
Each year those clubs managing a STRIVE program will experience at least a few real life-changing turnarounds for their students.  One student, when asked by a Rotarian what about the STRIVE program worked for her, answered: “My parents knew I was a loser, my counselors knew I was a loser, my teachers knew I was a loser…but you didn’t.”
